With Anthony Weiner’s resignation expected at 2 p.m. this afternoon, speculation has begun to center on what exactly the congressman might do next.
He came up as a congressional aide to Chuck Schumer, then ran for City Council, followed by Congress, and — unlike many of his colleagues — he doesn’t have a law degree to fall back on.
His most recent financial disclosure form, filed on May 16, would suggest Weiner needs to do something.
He lists one account with between $100,000 and $250,000 dollars, and counts 16 assets between $1,001 and $15,000.
At most –using the top end for all those ranges — he would have a savings of $490,000; at worst, he has $116,000 dollars. If all the accounts were right in the middle of the range, he would have $303,000.
Contrary to a report yesterday on OpenSecrets.org, which was based on the congressman’s 2009 filing, Weiner does not appear to own stock in The New York Times Company.
