As former Rep. Anthony Weiner mulls over whether to enter this year's mayor race, he is finding plenty of work as a consultant.

Since resigning from Congress over a scandal resulting from his lewd Twitter posts in 2011, Weiner has worked for more than a dozen companies.

Weiner said he has spoken with federal officials and members of Congress on his clients' behalf, but claims his work does not count as lobbying.

He and his wife, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, earned nearly a half-million dollars last year, mostly from his work.
