It was recently reported that an executive at a New York PR firm left his post when the company hired Anthony Weiner. Now the firm has parted ways with Weiner.
PR firm announces Anthony Weiner’s departure, which came as news to him
Anthony Weiner, the former congressman and New York City mayoral candidate whose political career ended due to a sexting scandal, is leaving the New Jersey PR firm MWW less than two months after joining it.
The circumstances of the exit are under dispute.
Weiner’s departure was announced in an internal memo today from MWW’s president and CEO, Michael Kempner, in polite terms.
“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.”
