Anthony Weiner’s campaign manager calls it quits

Anthony Weiner’s campaign manager calls it quits

After the latest reports of serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s post-resignation online fling, his campaign manager has called it quits.

From the NY Times:

In a new sign of tumult within Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled political operation, his campaign manager has quit, leaving his already skeletal team without a day-to-day leader.

According to two people told of the decision, the campaign manager, Danny Kedem, no longer wished to oversee Mr. Weiner’s bid for New York mayor after a week of bruising revelations about the candidate’s latest online conduct. The two people, who have close ties to the campaign, did not want to be identified because they were disclosing confidential conversations.

Mr. Kedem, 31, informed Mr. Weiner of his decision in the last 24 hours, the two people said.

The NY Daily News has said, “having built his campaign on deception, [Weiner] has badly damaged the process of selecting the city’s next chief executive.”

The NY Times has said he should “take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called Weiner’s conduct “reprehensible” and “stunning” and said he “[doesn’t] have a clue.”

Democratic representative Jerrold Nadler said he thinks Weiner “needs serious psychiatric help.”

Now a member of Weiner’s own staff is abandoning him.

But Anthony Weiner, purveyor of the great “I was hacked” lie, presses on.

    I’m curious — aside from being a total psychotic, has he ever actually accomplished anything to merit being mayor?

I thought for sure he would skate on this.

I am glad New York Democrats have at least some moral and common sense left, and sense of embarrassment.

I wonder who dropped a dime on Weiner…?

Electionus interruptus

Also, the New York Daily News reports that in 2011, Weiner used campaign money to hire an investigator to “investigate” his lie that his Twitter account had been hacked. As David Axelrod said on “Meet the Press” this morning, Weiner is delusional.

Excerpt:

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner paid a private eye nearly $45,000 in campaign cash to investigate his lie that a hacker posted a crotch shot on his Twitter feed, campaign spending records show.
Weiner’s brazen attempt to cover his tracks occurred shortly after Memorial Day weekend in 2011, when his first sexting scandal erupted and he went into furious spin control trying to save his career in Congress.
He maintained that he had been victimized — and promised an investigation to get to the bottom of how it happened.
“They’ll be looking into whether someone had my password,” he told CNN.

    Rumor: Huma wasn’t very upset about the sexting back when the story first broke 2 years ago, but she was outraged when she found out the hubby had wasted $45,000 in campaign funds and didn’t even get laid.

Drudge Headline: “Weiner Vows To Stick It Out.”

does this mean his campaign manager is really “pulling out” ?

Embarrassed? He thinks he’s Tom Cruise in underpants. I’m just surprised he doesn’t drop his trousers at campaign stops.

    Common Carol, if you were still in NYC you’d sneak in a vote for him. Think Fiorello reading X-rated comics. More fun then a barrel full of vulgar stand up comedians. Look at the alternative candidates: Adolfo Carrión,Jr.? John A. Catsimatidis? Joseph J. Lhota? Three stooges with the personality of soggy cornflakes. Who would you rather be talking to on Coney Island Boardwalk? A semi-pervert with personality, or any of those other career political losers?

Between Weiner and San Diego Mayor Filner, it serves notice that the Dems sure do love their pervs. No place in that party for any up tight or straight laced individuals. You’ve either gotta have a screw loose somewhere, have a deep seated aversion to the American Work Ethic or be an outright crook, criminal or thug.

jayjerome66 | July 28, 2013 at 2:31 pm

Go Weenie, Go! I hope he ‘hangs’ in there, and WINS! The more the minions of lefty political correctness pile up on him, the more the righty conservatives wiggle their heads with sanctimonious superiority over Democratic debauchery, the more I’m rooting that the so far unheard from hidden demographic of voters comes to his rescue: that large lurking bloc of ‘perpetually horny middle-age men’ who will identify with him; he may even get a large cross-over vote from Republican men, similarly fed up with feminist sexting kvetching as if it is somehow important or relevant enough to deserve all the indignant outrage it’s getting.

‘House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called Weiner’s conduct “reprehensible” and “stunning” and said he “[doesn’t] have a clue.”’

So says the expert.

    stevewhitemd in reply to MouseTheLuckyDog. | July 28, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    When Nancy Pelosi tells a fellow Dem to get out of a race you may rest assured that the internal polls conducted by the DNC are simply awful.

Some libwits have limits on insane and repugnant behavior they can tolerate from somebody who supports unlimited redistribution and other Marxist cons?

Who knew?

stevewhitemd | July 28, 2013 at 4:37 pm

It cannot have been easy for the campaign manager — other future clients want to know that you’re going to stand by them when the going gets tough, but you do have to show that you have some standards in that world.

I think this means a stampede to the exit. I’d be surprised if Weiner has any real staff left by the end of the coming week.

Time for weiner to pullout.

The interesting thing is, In the Democrat Party, he could run and win.
