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 »
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 »
In their editorial posted last evening, the
Asbury Park Press Editorial Board The Neptune Nudniks lecture New York City voters on character and morality.
As if they are an authority on character and morality and have readers from New York! Maybe they are hoping some bennies here for the weekend will read their paper instead of Greg’s List.
The Nudnik’s homily bemoans the fact that former Congressman Anthony Weiner and former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer are doing very well in the polls in their campaigns for municipal office in New York.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Asbury Park Press, Neptune Nudniks, NJ Media, Opinion | Tags: Anthony Weiner, Asbury Park Press, Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer, Fire the Asbury Park Press Editorial Board, Jim McGreevey, Judge Lawrence M.

Stonger Than The Scorn
Former Governor Jim McGreevey is back in government service, according to a report in The Jersey Journal.
Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop appointed McGreevey to the position of Executive Director of the Jersey City Employment and Training Commission. The commission is apparently a new venture of Fulop’s who made job creation and the establishment of a re-entry program for ex-offenders a major plank of his recent election campaign. There is no information about the commission on the city’s website.
Fulop’s spokesperson, Jennifer Morrill, did not know what McGreevey’s salary will be when we asked her. She promised to get back to us with that information and whether or not the job is pensionable.
UPDATED: Morrill said that McGreevey’s salary is $110,000. The commission is an independent authority, which is why there is no information about it on Jersey City’s website.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2017 NJ Gubernatorial Politics, Jim McGreevey | Tags: Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer, Jennifer Morrill, Jersey City, Jim McGreevey, Mark Sanford, Steve Fulop, Stronger Than The Scorn | 2 Comments »
