Anthony Weiner's communications director went on a long, kind of unbelievable, rant to Talking Points Memo today, giving some weight to those who think, despite Weiner's never-quit attitude, his campaign is basically over. The target of Weiner communications director Barbara Morgan's ire was former intern Olivia Nuzzi, who wrote two unflattering articles — for NSFWCorp, and for The Daily News, detailing her experience working for the campaign.
Those articles put a small spotlight on the staff drama side act to Wiener's center-ring scandal resurrection. Taken alone, Nuzzi's pieces are interesting, but not particularly damning: Weiner isn't as good at remembering names as he thinks he is. Many of the interns, at least, were only there to get close to Weiner's wife Huma Abedin.
