A top staffer with the Anthony Weiner campaign went on a profanity laced rant against a former intern Tuesday, calling her a "slutbag" and a "b—" who "sucked" at her job.
Olivia Nuzzi, a former intern with Weiner's New York City mayoral campaign, wrote a series of tell-all posts on the blog NSFWCORP this week
, followed by a Tuesday cover story in the New York Daily News
that detailed her experiences working for the scandal-plagued candidate.
Among the revelations:
- Many interns and staffers joined the campaign in hopes of gaining access to Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, and her boss Hillary Clinton.
- Some staffers were paid far less than they were promised.
- Many of Weiner's top aides, like campaign manager Danny Kedem and communications director Barbara Morgan, were inexperienced.
- Kedem quit the campaign
after Weiner lied to him about the timeline of the sexting scandal that broke last week.

When asked about Nuzzi's article and blog posts by Talking Points Memo
, Morgan, the communications director, unleashed a string of expletives in a stunning display of what not to do when representing a political campaign.
Here are the highlights:
On Nuzzi's stories:
"F—ing slutbag. Nice f—ing glamour shot on the cover of the Daily News. Man, see if you ever get a job in this town again. It's all bulls—. I mean, it’s such bulls—. She could f—ing… f—ing t—."
On Nuzzi's claims that Morgan has a "short" résumé:
"And then like she had the f—ing balls to like trash me in the paper. And be like, 'His communications director was last the press secretary of the Department of Education in New Jersey'. You know what? F— you, you little c—. I'm not joking, I am going to sue her."
On Nuzzi's conduct as an intern:
"She sucked. She like wasn't good at setting up events. She was clearly there because she wanted to be seen. Like it was, like, terrible and I had to like — she would like, she would just not show up for work. For the four weeks she worked there — she didn’t work weekends, so 20 days total. Of those 20 days, she missed probably five because she would just like not show up and not tell me she wasn’t going to be there. So, yeah, so there’s that."
Later on Tuesday, Morgan apologized for her rant.
"In a moment of frustration, I used inappropriate language in what I thought was an off-the-record conversation," she said in a statement. "It was wrong and I am very sorry, which is what I said tonight when I called and emailed Olivia to apologize."
Nuzzi tweeted Wednesday that she accepts Morgan's apology.
On Monday, Weiner plunged to fourth in the polls
in the Democratic primary race for New York City mayor. More than 50 percent of voters think he should drop out, according to the Quinnipiac survey.
