Barbara Morgan, Anthony Weiner’s potty-mouthed hack, apologized in the press to Olivia Nuzzi for her vulgar rant over the Fordham junior’s New York Daily News spread. Morgan said she thought she was off the record.
It was reported that Morgan said she called and emailed Nuzzi a personal apology.
Nuzzi wouldn’t confirm that she received the personal apology, but she took to twitter to announce her forgiveness.Posted: July 31st, 2013 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Anthony Weiner, Olivia Nuzzi | Tags: Anthony Weiner, Barbara Morgan, Olivia Nuzzi | 2 Comments »
Weiner for New York Mayor spokeswoman Barbara Morgan was more upset that Olivia Nuzzi wrote in her New York Daily News article that the Weiner campaign staff is inexperienced than she was about Nuzzi’s revelations that Weiner called his interns “Monica” and that much of his staff joined the campaign to curry favor with the candidate’s wife, Huma , who is on Hillary Clinton’s staff, rather than to get Weiner elected, according to a vulgarity laced rant at TalkingPointsMemo.
Which more than proved Nuzzi’s point about inexperience.
Morgan used language in reference to Nuzzi that Dan Jacobson wouldn’t print in the Tri CityNews and that, if uttered by a male spokesperson or Vice President of the United States, would cause more of an uproar than Eliot Spitzer’s socks.
Prior to joining the Weiner campaign, Morgan was the Director of Communications and Media Relations at the New Jersey Department of Education, a job she started in May of 2012 and is still listed as current on her LinkedIn profile.
MMM is not going to inquire with NJ DOE about Morgan’s departure. We’re just glad she’s gone.Posted: July 30th, 2013 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Anthony Weiner, Olivia Nuzzi | Tags: Anthony Weiner, Barbara Morgan, Barbara Morgan Potty Mouth, Dan Jacobson, Eliot Spitzer's socks, Olivia Nuzzi, Potty-Mouth, tri-CityNews | 3 Comments »

1. All those years in Congress and that’s all he has to show for it?
2. How odd that his name is Weiner when he should have been named for the other side.
3. How many years do you think Huda has set back women’s rights?
4. He really has proven the Peter principle, h…asn’t he?
5. Maybe if it were a little more substantial, it wouldn’t have been called a “tweet.”
6. Look, be kind, if no one is buying your product, you have to advertise.
7. We already know what he would do to the City if he were elected, he was merely being metaphorical in showing what he’d use.
8. Ok, so he made a mistake and confused some women with his urologist when tweeting.
9. Oh, like you’ve never accidentally pointed the cell phone in the wrong place when taking a picture?
10. It’s not really his fault. Huda said to him, “why can’t you be more like Hilary’s husband?” This was his interpretation.Posted: July 30th, 2013 | Author: admin | Filed under: 2013 Election, Anthony Weiner, Humour | Tags: Stuart J.

Former MMM columnist Oliva Nuzzi is on the front page of the New York Daily News today.
“Oh no, what did she do?” said both Dan Jacobson, who stole her away from MMM for $50 bucks, and Vin Gopal, for whom she had her first political internship in 2011, when I asked them if they’d seen it.
Olivia is smarter, funnier and better looking than most TV news personalities and pundits of any ideology or gender. The Middletown native, now a junior at Fordham, has a lot more than 15 minutes of fame in her future.Posted: July 30th, 2013 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2013 Election, Anthony Weiner, Media, NJ Media, Olivia Nuzzi | Tags: Anthony Weiner, Dan Jacobson, Middletown, NY Daily News, Olivia Nuzzi, Vin Gopal | 6 Comments »

Early in his New York City mayoral campaign, former Congressman Anthony Weiner gathered his twenty interns into his private office for an introduction.
“I always say that on every campaign, there are one or two volunteers who really make a difference,” he began. (There were roughly twenty of us in the room.) “So I just want to let you know that no task is too small, and the work you’re doing is important and it is appreciated.” He continued to speak for a few minutes, reiterating this point over and over.
“Okay!” Weiner said loudly, though not enthusiastically. “I’m going to go around the room now and ask you your name and a fact about yourself, and then I’m going to go back around and repeat your name to you.” A member of the campaign staff looked on, nervously. “I’m great at this,” Weiner said.
The Weiner proceeded to listen to the interns names and facts and then went back around the room and called the first tw0 women “Monica” and gave up.
“We all laughed nervously. Monica is an interesting intern name to pick out of the air. (Weiner’s wife, we should remember, works for Hillary Clinton.),” wrote former MMM columnist Olivia Nuzzi in a piece for her current gig at NSFWCorp.Posted: July 25th, 2013 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Anthony Weiner, misogyny, Olivia Nuzzi | Tags: Anthony Weiner, New York, Olivia Nuzzi | 1 Comment »
