LOS ANGELES — Porn mogul Larry Flynt offered disgraced US lawmaker Anthony Weiner a job Thursday, after the New York congressman resigned over a tawdry "sexting" scandal.

Hustler founder Flynt said he would pay Weiner, who posted pictures of his intimate anatomy to a number of women on Twitter, 20 percent more than what he earned in the House of Representatives.

"After having learned of your sudden and compelled resignation from your congressional post, I would like to make you an offer of employment at Flynt Management Group, LLC in our Internet group," he wrote.

"This offer is not made in jest. To show our sincerity, Flynt Management Group, LLC is willing to pay 20 percent more than your former congressional salary," he added, also promising to pay medical cover and relocation costs.

He added: "I feel that your unfortunate resignation is a prime example of unfounded political pressure and the hypocrisy that has invaded democracy in Washington DC."

"Just as we do not undertake insincere political crusades, we do not make insincere job offers," said Flynt in a letter to Weiner, published by the TMZ celebrity news website.

The 46-year-old congressman, who was until recently seen as a leading candidate for mayor of New York city, quit after admitting sending sexually explicit messages to half a dozen women.

One of the women involved, former porn actress Ginger Lee, welcomed Weiner's resignation.

"I am glad that he has resigned. After the past three weeks and everything that transpired before that, I think that he is making the wisest decision for himself, for his family, for everyone else drawn into this scandal," she said.

"I wish him the best, and hope that the treatment that he is receiving will help him to control his impulses and make better judgments in the future," she added in a statement.
