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

Posted on 05/16/2013 9:46:34 PM PDT by Seizethecarp

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.

I’ve just noticed something. Shouldn’t this woman be called Huma Weiner?I know liberals think taking their husband’s names is “supporting evil patriarchy”, but she is a Muslim.

Not often the NY Times will slam Hilarious. This looks really bad as in highly illegal for a government employee to be moonlighting.

Politico broke the story yesterday or else the NY Times would have never mentioned it today.

Wow. This could be a two-fer. Taking out Weiner and Hillery. I suspect that someone opposed to Weiner's mayoral candidacy spilled the beans.

BTW, it says that Huma did not disclose this work. Did she list it on her tax returns?

Prolly because the Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t have a “Payer’s Federal Identification #”

For some reason it never dawned on me why she didn’t take her husband’s last name. I just put it together. Huma Weiner would just make people smirk whenever she was introduced.
