Weinerís Wife Didnít Disclose Consulting Work She Did While Serving in State Dept. (Huma Abedin)
New York Times ^ | May 16, 2013 | RAYMOND HERNANDEZ

The State Department, under Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, created an arrangement for her longtime aide and confidante Huma Abedin to work for private clients as a consultant while serving as a top adviser in the department.

Ms. Abedin did not disclose the arrangement — or how much income she earned — on her financial report. It requires officials to make public any significant sources of income.

The disclosure of the agreement that Ms. Abedin made with the State Department comes as her husband, former Representative Anthony D. Weiner, a Democrat, prepares for a mayoral run in New York City. Politico reported the arrangement on Thursday afternoon.

Ms. Abedin declined a request for an interview, but the picture that emerges from interviews and records suggests a situation where the lines were blurred between Ms. Abedin’s work in the high echelons of one of the government’s most sensitive executive departments and her role as a Clinton family insider.

While continuing her work at the State Department, in the latter half of 2012, she also worked for Teneo, a strategic consulting firm, which was founded by Doug Band, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton. Teneo has advised corporate clients like Coca-Cola and MF Global, the collapsed brokerage firm run by Jon S. Corzine, a former governor of New Jersey.

At the same time, Ms. Abedin served as a consultant to the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation and worked in a personal capacity for Mrs. Clinton as she prepared to transition out of her job as secretary of state.

It is not clear what role Mrs. Clinton played in approving the arrangement. Some good-government groups have been critical of such situations, saying public employees’ loyalty should be solely to the public and their government work, rather than private firms and figures.

Worked in “a personal capacity for Mrs. Clinton”? I’ll bet she does. Silly me. I thought she worked for the American people in an “Official capacity.” You know, as a democrat muslim obama-supporting left-winger. Probably has some sort of title the new york times would prefer to keep secret.

“I have every confidence in Huma’s loyalty to our country, and everyone else should as well. All Americans owe Huma a debt of gratitude for her many years of superior public service. I hope these ugly and unfortunate attacks on her can be immediately brought to an end and put behind us before any further damage is done to a woman, an American, of genuine patriotism and love of country.”
— Senator John McCain

From article:

… Teneo has advised corporate clients like Coca-Cola and MF Global

… Officials in the State Department and Clinton circles seem especially sensitive about the arrangement, and no one would speak about it on the record.

No more corrupt Clintons...Google.. invited Bill Clinton to speak at their bilderberg2 like meeting.

Huma kept it sweet and juicy for Hillary—just the way Hillary likes it.
