  • Anthony Weiner Gets Canned … Again

    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.

    “I read the mww statement when they sent it to staff,” Weiner told PoliticoNJ in a direct tweet. “I was either not consulted or ignored on every part of this excellent summer adventure.”

    The disgraced New York Democrat joined the company’s advisory board as a public policy expert in July, an addition to the company that was not welcomed by all.

    Arthur Schwartz, the firm’s senior vice president and managing director, left the company in September over Weiner’s antics.

    The two squabbled over Twitter shortly before Schwartz, one of the few Republicans at left-leaning firm, opted to leave his position.

    While Kempner called Weiner’s departure a resignation, sources told Page Six he was heavily pressed to step down.

    Prior to losing his position at MWW, Weiner worked as a corporate consultant, had a failed mayoral run and made an appearance in the  Sci-Fi channel made-for-TV hit movie “Sharknado 3.”

    He said he plans to open his own firm that will focus on reworking the New York State Constitution.

    “I need a PR company to recover from working for a PR company,” Weiner told Politico. “Go figure.”
