A public relations executive has quit his job after his firm hired Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former Congressman, as a public policy expert, the New York Post reports. 

Arthur Schwartz, who had been senior vice president and managing director of MWW's corporate communication practice since October 2014, quit earlier this month after publicly battling Weiner on Twitter. He was one of a handful of Republicans at the Democrat-leaning firm, according to the Post.

Weiner, who is married to Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's longtime top aide, resigned from Congress in 2011 following revelations of his lurid social media exchanges with women under the name "Carlos Danger."

He continued tweeting insulting comments about Republicans after joining MWW in July.


When Weiner tweeted about GOP presidential candidate George Pataki on Aug. 28, Schwartz replied, making reference to Weiner's past scandal.


Since leaving, Schwartz has been able to do business with people who wanted nothing to do with Weiner, the Post reported.

"This is a direct reaction from Arthur's business associates being uncomfortable with Anthony Weiner," O'Brien Murray, a Schwartz associate, told the Post. "Corporations don't want the image of working with a firm that is affiliated with Anthony Weiner."

Neither Schwartz nor MWW would confirm whether the departure was based on Weiner's presence at the firm.
