NEW YORK (AP) - Anthony Weiner's campaign manager has quit after the New York City mayoral candidate admitted to additional raunchy online correspondence with women.
Weiner spokeswoman Barbara Morgan confirmed a report Saturday that campaign manager Danny Kedem has resigned. She had no further comment.
The New York Times reported that Kedem told Weiner he did not want to oversee the campaign after Weiner acknowledged that he continued to send lewd photos to women after resigning from Congress in 2011.
Weiner was forced to discuss his online behavior after a gossip website printed excerpts of conversations Weiner had with Indiana college student Sydney Leathers last summer.
Weiner apologized and promised that the "behavior is behind me."
He later admitted that he traded racy messages with at least three women since leaving office.
