Weiner has held the position at the Brooklyn-based glass company for the past year, since May 2020.

According to Daily Mail, IceStone hires the homeless, refugees, and ex-cons like Weiner for positions with the company.

Weiner was the first to admit that he's not needed as CEO anymore.

Taking to his LinkedIn, the disgraced politician wrote, "The IceStone workers cooperative will not happen all at once and right away, but one thing it does not need is a Chief Executive Officer."

Weiner's long-winded letter continued, "I have stepped aside to turn my seat over to the men and women who will now be making the decisions."

Finding humor in his decision, Weiner added a joke that some might deem a tad inappropriate considering his sexting scandal past.

"I will be keeping my IceStone hard hat," he wrote, "That may come in handy."

Weiner's life fell apart in 2016 when his affair with an underage girl was blown wide open.

He used the app Confide to send sexually graphic messages to the then 15-year-old girl. She alleged that Weiner urged to her participate in his “rape fantasies” and asked her to dress up in “school girl” outfits.

The teen said their sexting relationship began when she was just a sophomore in high school — while he was still married to Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin.

Several private photos he sent the girl made the rounds online, including a shirtless selfie that he took inside a bathroom.

In 2017, Weiner was sentenced to 21 months at Federal Medical Center, Devens in Ayer, Massachusetts.

He was released from prison in May 2019 after serving just 18-months in prison.

Weiner quitting his job isn't the only reason he's been in headlines lately.

The ex-politician shocked everyone when it was revealed he rejoined the secret messaging app he used during his months-long sexting relationship with the 15-year-old.
