A Republican executive at MWW quit his job after the public relations company announced the hire of Anthony Weiner as a policy expert, the New York Post reported Monday.
Sources told the New York newspaper that top-executive Arthur Schwartz, 43, quit his job as senior vice president following Weiner's July hire.
“This is a direct reaction from Arthur’s business associates being uncomfortable with Anthony Weiner,” O’Brien Murray, a Schwartz associate, told the Post.
The 43-year-old, one of the firm's only Republicans, had deep ties to the Republican Party and conservative businessman, the Post reported.
In late-August, Schwartz even publicly rebuked Weiner over a snarky tweet.
Sources told the Post that Schwartz has taken up business with individuals he couldn't have otherwise worked with at the Democrat-leaning PR firm.
