Huma Abedin Hillary Clintons longtime aide and the wife of all-but-declared New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner spent her final months at the State Department working as a part-time consultant with the agency who at the same time was allowed to represent outside clients, POLITICO has confirmed.
Abedin, a fixture at the Clintons side for at least 15 years from Iowa to Indonesia shifted to her new role after maternity leave in the early summer of 2012, according to a source familiar with the arrangement.
The new status made her a special government employee, which was tantamount to being a consultant, according to the source, whose information was confirmed by two other staffers familiar with the matter. Multiple sources told POLITICO Abedin did work for other clients, which a friend of Abedin said totaled four, including the State Department, Hillary Clinton, the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation and Teneo, the firm co-founded by former Bill Clinton counselor Doug Band.
Its the first time that Abedins changed status at State has been made public and comes as her husband, who resigned his Queens congressional seat amid scandal in 2011, is expected to launch a comeback mayoral campaign next week.
Mayoral candidates are required to disclose personal financial information with the citys Conflict of Interest Board including spousal sources of income, but that piece of the filing is not made public, the agency said.
And even if it were, Abedin currently works solely for Hillary Clinton as the head of her post-State Department transition team, a move that began on March 1, according to a friend of hers. That means Abedin never would have had to make the information public had her friend not provided the details.

So she was moonlighting while “on maternity leave”?
Couldn’t do the work she was being paid for but well enough to solicit outside work?

Keeping it Sweet ‘n Juicy for Hillary.
Is this an Obama leak to Politico to counter the current Hillary leaks(if it is Hillary’s people) on the current Obama scandals?
Back in forth battle of:zero’s fault...fat a**’s fault...repeat.... With Bill being the Ringmaster.

Ding, ding, ding - we have a thread winnah!!!
If you are close enough to Hillary or Obama, rules don’t count for much. You can do pretty much anything you like.
Imight add for some reason I believe the Muslim Brotherhood was one of Huma’s clients.
Maybe it has to do with the fact her Mother, Father and Brother all work for them.
By the way her description as a Sultry Beauty leaves a lot to be desired.
I know beauty and she doesn’t have it.
I’d agree that Huma is pretty good looking.
Obviously her choice of “partners” is based far more on access to power than physical beauty.....
