NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 29: Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner speaks in Union Square in support of demonstrating fast food workers on August 29, 2013 in New York City. Across the country thousands of low-wage workers are expected to walk off their jobs Thursday at fast food establishments in several U.S. cities. Workers at KFC, Wendy's, Burger King, McDonald's and other restaurants are calling for a living wage of $15 an hour and the right to form a union without retaliation. In a poll released We | Getty

In a move that had wags everywhere digging into their past to find their best 2012-era genital puns, Business Insider announced on Monday that it has hired Anthony Weiner as a political columnist.

Weiner's column—which will be called "Weiner!"—will appear the last Friday of every month, and will discuss "the top political issues of the day imbued with his unique insider's perspective," Business Insider said.

The news comes months after Weiner lost the New York mayoral primary election in September 2013. The former congressman resigned from Congress in 2011 after admitting to sexting with several women, and it was later revealed that he continued to sext with women after his resignation.

Of course, before his name became a synonym for "humiliating personal scandal," Weiner was well-known as a political bruiser.
