Some of soon-to-depart Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner’s hesitation to leave office was financial; he earns over $150,000 per year as a House member and is not a rich man. Perhaps he needn’t worry?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Doug Ellin, executive producer of “Entourage,” has offered Weiner a guest star spot on the show, in which he’d play himself. As of yet, there’s been no response from the embattled former New York representative, Ellin said.

If it’s the camera that Weiner is suddenly worried about, he has another potential job opportunity. In a letter published on The Huffington Post, Hustler founder Larry Flynt is offering Weiner a job in the company’s internet group.

“I cannot emphasize enough the genuineness of this offer. We are a serious corporation which, as you know, has been heavily involved in the political environment of this country for over thirty-five years,” Flynt wrote to Weiner. “Our key missions have consistently included the crucial fight of battling hypocrisy within the federal and state governments. Flynt Management Group, LLC and Hustler Magazine have been dedicated to decades of serious political commentary. Just as we do not undertake insincere political crusades, we do not make insincere job offers.” [Huffington Post]

Although QAnon isn't a religious movement per se, the far-right conspiracy theorists have enjoyed some of their strongest support from white evangelicals — who share their adoration of former President Donald Trump. And polling research from The Economist and YouGov shows that among those who are religious, White evangelicals are the most QAnon-friendly.
