Weinerís Wife Didnít Disclose Consulting Work She Did While Serving in State Dept.
NY 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. Connect with NYTMetro

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.

Anybody ever wonder what precisely these people ‘consult’ about. Is it consulting or paid access to power?

I don’t know anyone who isn’t outraged at everyone in DC and in government everywhere.

I would assume that most of the current administration is doing ‘consulting’ work for corporations.

So Huma Weiner is hiding the fact that she is consulting for an international firm that specializes in planning for businesses to position well for coming policies?
Noooooo,, no conflict there at all.
