Anthony Weiner’s spokeswoman, Barbara Morgan, issued an apology tonight after a profanity-laced interview with Talking Points Memo
, in which she described a former campaign intern as a fame hungry “bitch” and “slutbag” who “sucked” at her job.
Ms. Morgan’s tirade came following a piece
in the Daily News
today, in which the former intern, Olivia Nuzzi, panned the campaign, reporting that many staffers had only joined to curry favor with Mr. Weiner’s wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. She’d also dissed Ms. Morgan and other staffers’ “short résumés.” Mr. Weiner, of course, is running for mayor and has been dogged by a new sexting scandal since last week.
Ms. Nuzzi declined to comment on Ms. Morgan’s comments or apology, but changed her description
on Twitter to read, “Slutbag, twat and **nt. Writer for NSFWCORP.” Politicker has reached out to TPM for comment and will update when we receive a response.
Disclosure: The TPM reporter who broke the story, Hunter Walker, formerly worked for The New York Observer.
