Sugar daddies bailed out Anthony Weiner when he was down and out — giving him work after stuffing his many political campaigns with donations.
Hedge-fund brothers David and Eugene Grin helped Weiner with consulting work after he resigned from Congress following his sexting scandal, The Post has learned. The Grins also assisted his mayoral and congressional races, raising nearly $50,000 for Weiner, who is now considering a mayoral run.
Through two hedge funds, the Grins control Parabel, a company that claims to harvest an algae-like crop.
Weiner touted Parabel as one of his clients in a recent news article outlining his success as a business consultant. Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, reported earning $496,000 last year, mostly from his earnings.
What Weiner failed to mention was that on Jan. 13, Parabel transferred nearly all of its assets to a subsidiary in the Cayman Islands — on the same day a United Arab Emirates firm pumped $15 million into Parabel, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission document.
Weiner said he knew nothing about Parabel’s offshore move.
“I had nothing to do with the management of the company. Nor was I involved with the finance or operation of the outfit,” he said. “I’m not even sure I was consulting for them during this period.”
Eugene Grin declined comment on whether he helped Weiner get the consulting job with Parabel.
The Grins have also been associated with shady characters.
The brothers lent $6 million to Francis O’Donnell of Coach Industries. In 2007, O’Donnell pleaded guilty to being an associate of the Genovese crime family, according to published reports.
The Grins lent $24 million to Penthouse founder Bob Guccione to stave off eviction from his Manhattan town house. They took possession when he went into default, according to published reports.
