Hustler LFP's Larry Flynt Offers Former Rep. Anthony Weiner's Weiner a Job
Larry Flynt, founder of Hustler, one of the most famous - and economically sound - adult companies on the planet, has written former Congressman Anthony Weiner a letter offering employment at the company's Beverly Hills, Calif., offices.
And it appears Flynt means business, though honestly when doesn't he? His office is larger and filled with more books than our entire apartment.
We saw the letter on HuffingtonPost.com. Here's what it said:
After having learned of your sudden and compelled resignation from your Congressional post, I would like to make you an offer of employment at Flynt Management Group, LLC in our Internet group. As a Congressman, you are known for your intensity and perseverance. I believe that this attitude, combined with your service in the House of Representatives' Committee on Energy and Commerce, will make you a valuable asset to this corporation.
This offer is not made in jest. To show our sincerity, Flynt Management Group, LLC is willing to pay twenty percent more than your former Congressional salary, ensuring that your medical benefits would be equal to what you were previously receiving. While you will have to relocate to our corporate offices in Beverly Hills, California, we would pay for all relocation costs.
Again, I cannot emphasize enough the genuineness of this offer. We are a serious corporation which, as you know, has been heavily involved in the political environment of this country for over thirty-five years. Our key missions have consistently included the crucial fight of battling hypocrisy within the federal and state governments. Flynt Management Group, LLC and Hustler Magazine have been dedicated to decades of serious political commentary. Just as we do not undertake insincere political crusades, we do not make insincere job offers.
While this employment opportunity is being offered in large part due to your qualifications and clear passion for making a change, I feel that your unfortunate resignation is a prime example of unfounded political pressure and the hypocrisy that has invaded democracy in Washington D.C. I hope you will sincerely consider this offer, and I look forward to your response.
Larry C. Flynt
Seeing as though Weiner announced his resignation a few hours ago, this doesn't seem like a half-bad offer.
But whatever the position might be, we hope it doesn't involve social media. Cuz he sorta already failed that entrance exam.
