He's serious, really. Porn king Larry Flynt has offered newly unemployed Anthony Weiner a job in the Internet department of Flynt Management. "This offer is not made in jest," Flynt wrote in a letter he fired off to the former congressman. Flynt is offering 20% more than Weiner's congressional salary, notes TMZ. "I feel that your unfortunate resignation is a prime example of unfounded political pressure and the hypocrisy that has invaded democracy in Washington," Flynt adds. "I hope you will sincerely consider this offer." No word yet from Weiner. Maybe he'll tweet his response. (And the gigs keep pouring in: Weiner has also been offered a role on a major TV show.)
