Full title.......Anthony Weiner and wife Huma move into luxury $3.3M condo owned by top Clinton donor... are they there for free or just getting a sweet deal?

dailymail.co.uk story | 8/13/12 / FR Posted by ColdOne

Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner and his faithful wife Huma Abedin have moved into a $3.3million New York City apartment owned by a top donor to Ms Abedin's boss, Hillary Clinton. The well-appointed luxury pad includes four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in the 12th floor of an exclusive building on Park Avenue. It costs an estimated $14,000 a month. The price begs the question -- is the couple staying there for free, or just getting a sweet deal? (Excerpt) Read more at dailymail.co.uk ...

Neither one is really that wealthy....so I doubt they are paying $14,000 a month. More likely to be $7,000 and a deal if Weiner doesn’t win...they have to move out.l

The majority of American Jews have their heads up their asses. How they could cater to leftists and still look decent Americans in the eye is one of life’s mysteries.

Such a gulf between the Jews of Israel and the Jews of America.

Take a bow, Schmuckie Schumer!

Support Free Republic by betting on how long Weiner lasts! I bet he’s the next Mayor of New York ... and if not, $100 to Free Republic.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has been investigating Abedin’s activities as a paid consultant while she was still working for Hillary Clinton toward the end of her tenure.

In June, 2012, Abedin changed her employment status at the State Department from being a full time employee with the title of deputy chief of staff to being a “special government employee,” a type of contractor that allowed her to take on private clients in addition to her government job that included Hillary Clinton’s post-State Department transition team, the William J. Clinton Foundation, and Teneo Holdings, a firm run by Clinton confidante Doug Band.

Abedin’s change in employment status was exposed in a June article in Politico, which reported that Abedin and Weiner reported income of $490,000 in calendar year 2012, $360,000 of which represented a combination of both of their consulting incomes.

Grassley has been pressing the State Department and Abedin to answer a slew of questions over the arrangement ever since.

“It appears that Teneo may have been compensating Ms. Abedin for gathering information from government sources for the purpose of informing investment decisions of her clients - or in other words, political intelligence,” Grassley wrote in a June 13 letter. “This raises important questions about whether her dual role was adequately disclosed to government officials who may have provided her information without realizing that she was being paid by private investors to gather information.”

============================================

Huma was pocketing bigtime from Teneo Holdings, a firm run by Clinton confidante Doug Band. Teneo is also connected to MF Global--- as Jon Corzine presided over a billion dollar heist. Quoting from Teneo’s Web site: the firm is the “next chapter in strategic advisory.”

===============================================

NOTE: a former MF Global employee accused former president Bill Clinton of collecting $50,000 per month through his Teneo advisory firm in the months before MFG careened towards its Halloween 2012 filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, reports Human Events.

Bill Clinton is the chairman of Teneo's advisory board.

Teneo was hired by MF Global’s former CEO Jon S. Corzine to improve his image and to enhance his connections with Clinton’s political family, said the employee, who asked that his name be withheld because he feared retribution, according to Hum/Evnts. The Teneo contract with MF Global lasted at least five months, the souce said. “The board cancelled it after Corzine resigned.”

The source, who is no longer associated with MF Global, said Teneo is a dual-track company with one side devoted to merchant and investment banking and the other side set up to provide image and strategy consulting services. The trustee for MFG investors later sued JPMorgan bank for return of about $450M that MFG had transferred to the bank.

==============================================

Sen Grassley needs to mobilize the Bank Secrecy Act---in which banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of govt fraud, money laundering and other financial crimes.

The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the public from harm by identifying and detecting govt fraud, money laundering from criminal enterprises, terrorism, tax evasion or other unlawful activities.

L/E needs to examine Huma, Corzine's and Clinton's bank accounts.

<><> Joint bank accounts might be used to facilitate the transfer of of govt funds. MFG monies may pay for personal and private expenses, credit cards, real estate sunsidies and vehicle purchases.

<><> To cover their tracks, fake invoices might be created to show that money deposited into accounts was being used for legitimate investment purposes.

The scheme might be advanced by issuing phony statements of payments from financial sources that actually covered the transfer of funds for MFG insiders own use.

<><> L/E is directed to get ahold of: (1) copies of MFG checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, contracts, loan agreements, and, (8) any other books or records. L/E should also explore (a) monies paid to brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.

<><> L/E should scrutinize MFG bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) frequent requests for withdrawals.

Payoff/buyout. Huma knows things about Hillary. Or else Hillary would have thrown her under the bus.

BTW, like his tenant Anthony Weiner, condo owner/donor Jack Rosen is no stranger to sex scandals. In 1999, he was hauled into court by a Russian model who said she’d had an affair with the married dad of two and that he was the father of her young daughter. Rosen first denied paternity but then stopped fighting the suit, and the judge gave the child — who is now in high school — Rosen’s surname.

Eh! Catholics vote for pro abort dems 50% consistently.

That is, people who call themselves catholic

And the American Medical Association is pro abortion

So, there’s plenty of senselessness to go around

When Rome took over the Middle East it destroyed what is now Jordan and merged the Jews with the Edomites. History records that the Jews were exiled but no mention of the Edomites is made. That is because a lot of people who say they are jews are not. They are Edomites.

Know how to tell the difference?

Do they love, or hate God. Its a tell.

Ever met a liberal that loves God?

me either.

Everyone here seems to just ignore that Weiner still has $4.3 million in cash leftover from his re-election campaign account. He can still use this for any run for office.

Neither he nor Huma, as you say don’t have any money. He has no job; she’s taken extended leave of absence from Hillary.

Media is awed that he’s just sticking to the campaign. I say it is perfect logical he’s trying to convert that cash and a campaign is the best way to do it. He will never drop out.

Yeah... but Weiner has $3million in unspent campaign funds in an account. His new digs are 'campaign expenses'.

This is probably a payoff to Huma to keep quiet about what she knows about Hillary.

This goes along with her lucrative “job” as an independent contractor/advisor to the State Dept. while on maternity leave.

The Clintons know how to bribe people to keep their mouths shut.

Anthony Weiner and wife move into $3.3M Manhattan apt.

Weiner and Abedin moved into the pace shortly after they sold their Forest Hills condo. The apartment had been on the market for $3.285 million in the spring of 2011.

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/luxe_on_his_side_B1j7VxzVuwhwa8aSoHxLPJ

After quitting his Queens House seat amid a notorious sexting scandal, Weiner and beautiful, brainy spouse Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, landed in the sprawling, 12th-floor Park Avenue trophy residence owned by Rosen Partners LLC, which is headed by close Clinton pal Jack Rosen, records show.

He has also contributed several thousand dollars to Weiner’s coffers, and is a top Obama bundler, donating more than $500,000 to the president’s re-election efforts.

Some Weiner-watchers are stunned that the pol, who gave up his $174,000 salary when he resigned, and Huma, who makes around $155,000 annually, can afford the posh pad at 254 Park Ave. South at East 20th Street.

“It’s a ridiculously expensive place,” said a top Democratic fund-raising source with deep ties to the Clintons.

“Everyone assumes they live there for free, thanks to a donor, a friend of Bill and Hillary, or even just someone with an empty place who is connected,” the source said.

But Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines insisted that Weiner and Abedin pay “market rate’’ for the pad.

“They are a two-income family and are more than capable of paying their market-rate rent,” he said, declining to disclose exactly what the couple pays.

The property came off the market last summer, after Weiner resigned and inked a deal to sell his modest, 875-square foot two-bedroom Forest Hills condo for $430,000.

Shortly after Weiner and his wife moved into the new place, records show, Abedin sold her Washington, DC, condo for $620,000. She had bought the place for $649,000 in 2006, taking out a $532,000 mortgage.

The Weiner family and their landlord say the arrangement is nothing special — an apartment found through standard means in exchange for a market rent... “The Weiner family was introduced to 254 Park Avenue South by a third-party broker,” Roxanne Donovan, spokeswoman for the building’s sponsor, said in a statement. (She declined to identify the broker.)

"...Wake up"

We're awake however, no one seems to be listening or willing to stand up.....The talking heads on the left and in the middle along with the MSM are already telling us Hillary Clinton is the choice of the Progressives/Socialists/Communists.....Why would Americans vote for another thoroughly corrupt politician...because they don't vote for their country, they vote for what they think will help them. The Clintons like the Obamas will never lift a finger to help anyone who can't help them.....arrogant to a fault and crooked.

the Clintoons are desperate to get the Weiner scandal OFF of the daily news

out of altruism toward the Clintoos?

NOT ON YOUR LIFE

The Weiner scandal, quite correctly, reminds everyone of the immorality of Bill Clinton and the totally political nature of the Billary marriage. The truth hurts and it hurts the Clintoons. Thus, Billary is seeking “help” for Weiner from every source of theirs they can ask.
