Beginning of the end: Weiner's campaign manager quits

Danny Kedem, the young operative who joined Weiner’s campaign in late spring when the former congressman announced his candidacy, departed the effort at the end of last week, a source familiar with the move confirmed. The news was first reported by the New York Times’ Michael Barbaro.

Kedem’s departure is significant less in terms of day-to-day impact – Weiner is notorious for micromanaging his own races and the team was already quite thin – than for the public-relations effect after a fresh bout of scandal…

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Kedem knew about the details of the latest revelations involving Weiner before they were made public by an Arizona-based website called TheDirty.com.
