But if you read the story, that’s not entirely true.
Even if scandal-stained Rep. Anthony Weiner didn’t want to stay in office, he needs to stay in office.
Unlike many of his peers in the House, Weiner doesn’t have a business or even a law degree to fall back on.
Weiner, 46, took home $156,117 in 2010, according to his federal tax returns released by his staff.
His humiliated wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, earned $154,000 in 2009, federal records show.
So if he quits or gets kicked out of Congress one way or another, the Weiner household will have to get by on just over $150k? Well cry them a river — most Americans get by far less than that.
