After just two months, sexting aficionado Anthony Weiner has been pushed out of his consulting position at public relations group MWW over the negative attention the disgraced congressman brought to the firm.
MWW chief Michael Kempner announced the former politician’s departure from the firm, which mainly focuses on crisis management, in an internal memo obtained by the New York Post.
“Over the past few months, it has become clear that a handful of people and a few media outlets continue to be fixated on Anthony, attempting to cause harm to him and by extension to our agency,” Kempner wrote. “The continuous noise from these parties has caused both Anthony and the MWW team to have to deal with many inflammatory, insulting and false stories. To Anthony’s credit, he understands that his presence here has created noise and distraction that just isn’t helpful, and at the same time, he has other interests that he wishes to pursue.”
Weiner, who was forced to resign his congressional post after it was revealed he was sending women lewd pictures over Twitter, said he didn’t express the same sentiments as his former boss.
