Disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has a new gig -- as a columnist for the news Web site Business Insider.

The Web site announced Monday that Weiner, who resigned from Congress after it came to light that he engaged in inappropriate relationships with women who weren't his wife and lied repeatedly about it, will author a monthly column.

The column is called, "Weiner!" and will run on the last Friday of each month. It will start this Friday.

The Web site says that Weiner, whose attempted political comeback in the New York mayor's race last year crashed and burned after revelations that he continued having such relationships after leaving Congress, "is excited to engage with the site's readership."

Weiner also writes regular columns for the New York Daily News.
