Los Angeles: Porn mogul Larry Flynt
offered disgraced US lawmaker Anthony Weiner a job, after the
New York congressman resigned over a tawdry "sexting" scandal.

Hustler founder Flynt said on Thursday he would pay
Weiner, who posted pictures of his intimate anatomy to a
number of women on Twitter, 20 percent more than what he
earned in the House of Representatives.

"After having learned of your sudden and compelled
resignation from your congressional post, I would like to make
you an offer of employment at Flynt Management Group, LLC in
our Internet group," he wrote.

"This offer is not made in jest. To show our
sincerity, Flynt Management Group, LLC is willing to pay 20
percent more than your former congressional salary," he added,
also promising to pay medical cover and relocation costs.

He added, "I feel that your unfortunate resignation is
a prime example of unfounded political pressure and the
hypocrisy that has invaded democracy in Washington DC."

"Just as we do not undertake insincere political
crusades, we do not make insincere job offers," said Flynt in
a letter to Weiner, published by the TMZ celebrity news
website.

The 46-year-old congressman, who was until recently
seen as a leading candidate for mayor of New York city, quit
after admitting sending sexually explicit messages to half a
dozen women.

One of the women involved, former porn actress Ginger
Lee, welcomed Weiner`s resignation.

"I am glad that he has resigned. After the past three
weeks and everything that transpired before that, I think that
he is making the wisest decision for himself, for his family,
for everyone else drawn into this scandal," she said.
