Former Rep. Anthony Weiner is getting a second chance as the CEO of a recycling company that's based in Brooklyn.
Weiner, who served 21 months in prison for sending explicit messages to a minor, took over as CEO of IceStone USA located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. He admits it's not something he saw coming.
"A year ago maybe, I wasn't thinking, 'Boy, I would like to talk about environmentally sustainable countertops,'" says Weiner. "Now it's my passion." The company focuses on recycling and giving products a second chance. Weiner says reactions to his new position have been mixed.
"I've had very interesting interactions from people who are love the product go get them," says Weiner. "Not crazy about you but the countertops are great."
The company doesn't ask people if they have criminal backgrounds. That is something that resonates with Weiner, who says it's not lost on him that he is working for a company that specializes in second chances.

They hired a convicted sexual predator.
A recycling company?
I’ll bet this is a company that lives government contracts and handouts.
Forget entirely about his sexual perversion - this guy was an evidently sick puppy years ago while in Congress. Someone should go back through CSPAN archives and compile the record of this total POS. One of the most loathsome humanoids to sit in Congress. And that’s saying a lot.
He should be recycling by breaking rocks in the hot sun.
I have no problem with him getting a job but CEO? Shouldn’t he be out sorting second hand countertops with the rest of the 2nd chancers at until he learns the business.
ANTHONY HAS -———> CONNECTIONS.
But if he had tweeted praise of Trump 2020, he’d never get a job again.
Speaking of that, what’s up with Huma?
During a lockdown while everyone else was losing their job? Must be nice.
Weiner Gets a Job - LOL, sounds like a good title for a book about him. Of course, it would be a short book.
How many “second chances” does this guy get? He has more lives than a cat.
That being said, he probably would have done a better job than DeBlasio. The bar is that low.
I cannot wait for Tony Soprano to WHACK the WEINER.
Is he still married to Huma?
There's the long-term costs, such as waste disposal. I don't know if you're familiar with who runs that business... but I assure you it's not the boy scouts.
Not interested in a recycled weiner.
Piecing his life back together? Anthony Weiner is spotted with ex-wife Huma Abedin walking their son to school after becoming CEO of firm that makes tables out of broken glass.
ah, yes, waste management...in NY...nothing fishy there.
He needs to work his way up from the bottom ( something he is reportedly quite experienced at). But at least hes in the right trade for his talents garbage
