Now if you were in the crisis management business, who better to hire than a guy who’s a walking public relations nightmare? He sure has enough experience managing a crisis, although the results haven’t exactly worked out too well for him.
If you find yourself in a p.r. nightmare, there’s a swashbuckling new hero you can turn to — Carlos Danger.
A top “crisis” public-relations firm with ties to Hillary Rodham Clinton has hired the last person in the world that most people would call on to dispense advice on dealing with a scandal: disgraced, penis-texting former Congressman Anthony Weiner.
The man who destroyed his own promising political career by botching a 2011 sext-message imbroglio with bald-faced lies — and who then ruined his comeback by running one of the most disastrous mayoral campaigns of all time — will now get paid to dispense advice to high-paying clients of the MWW p.r. firm, sources told The Post.
About the only thing that makes sense about this is that one of the company’s clients is Ball Park Franks.
We’re going to need a bigger irony meter.
MWW is headed by Michael Kempner, a prominent New Jersey Democrat who has been a top fund-raiser for both Clinton and President Obama.
Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, is a top political adviser and longtime confidante of Clinton, the leading Democratic presidential candidate and former secretary of state.
Kempner is listed as one of Clinton’s “Hillblazers’’ — having raised more than $100,000 for her campaign since April.
Kempner also was one of the top bundler’s for Clinton’s 2008 bid for the White House, and has hosted Obama at his Cresskill, NJ, home.
Well, Grandma’s already in crisis mode, so maybe he can help finish her off.
