Huma Questioned on Sweetheart Deal
Liberals scratch each other’s back.
Check it out:
Despite her husband being the butt of late-night jokes and water-cooler ridicule, Huma Abedin is standing by Anthony Weiner, and he, by her. “I love her,” Weiner said at a press conference Thursday. “She loves me. We have a son. Nothing else matters.”
But Abedin is facing her own troubles — less salacious than her husband’s, but potentially more severe.
On June 13, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote her and Secretary of State John Kerry asking why Abedin, the deputy chief of staff at the State Department under former Secretary Hillary Clinton, was granted status as a “special government employee” after the birth of her son.
That title allowed her to work from home as a part-time consultant to State, earning $135,000 as a government employee — while also earning $355,000 as a consultant for Teneo, where former President Bill Clinton is a board member.
