Applicants should expect to work long hours for no money, but hey, it could help enhance your career or something. Maybe it’s just us, but for this guy to go online seeking interns seems just a bit clumsy.
Calling all co-eds — sexting king Anthony Weiner wants you!
The mayoral wild card has put out a call for passionate young campaign interns who can handle both the rigors of his bizarre bid for mayor and the snickers they’re sure to get from their friends and family.
“If you want to join the most exciting campaign of the year . . . we want you to help Anthony Weiner become the next mayor,” reads an online advertisement for the unpaid positions. “His campaign is looking for interns and fellows to join our team, immediately!”
The ad says the former Queens congressman wants interns who can use “social media to enhance our message.”
Perhaps they can keep him from getting into another social-media mess like the one that derailed his congressional career in 2011, when he was caught tweeting a picture of his underwear-sheathed manhood to a variety of intern-aged women.
Even before his Twitter disaster, the Brooklyn native during his 12 years in Washington had developed a reputation as a tireless skirt chaser. In 2010 he married Hillary Rodham Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
The intern solicitation was placed by his campaign on a job site for Democratic politicos looking for employment.
The notice demands that applicants be zealous about wanting to see the Twitter terror in Gracie Mansion and asks for “hardworking” and goal-oriented candidates only.
This just invites all sorts of mischief.
“This is an unpaid internship but we are willing to work with you to get you school credit,” the campaign says, urging applicants to send their résumé to firstname.lastname@example.org.
