For many people, losing a job means living with more roommates in a less desirable neighborhood or even moving back in with family. But following his resignation from a $177,000-a-year congressional gig, Anthony Weiner has made a giant upgrade in the housing department. After selling his “875-square foot two-bedroom Forest Hills condo,” Weiner and wife Huma Abedin are now renting a “2,120-square-foot, four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom apartment” on Park Avenue. The new crib happens to be owned by big-time Democratic donor Jack Rosen, but a spokesman for Hillary Clinton insists that the Weiner-Abedins are paying “market rate,” which the Post’s “real-estate sources” peg at “at least $12,000 to $14,000 a month.” What a tragic downward spiral Weiner has found himself in.
