On Monday, Nuzzi wrote a story on the blog NSFWCORP claiming that Weiner’s campaign had lost more personnel than it had admitted and that Weiner’s campaign manager had quit after the candidate “lied to him about the timing of his sexting scandal.”
She followed that piece with a story in the Daily News on Tuesday in which she mocked the “short resumes” of fellow staffers and claimed that many were only on the campaign to gain favor with Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife and a close aide to former Secretary of State and potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
