Weiner loses campaign manager

NEW YORK — Anthony Weiner acknowledged Sunday that his campaign manager quit after new revelations of lewd online behavior, but Weiner said he was not dropping out of the race for New York City mayor.

The New York Times reported that the campaign manager, Danny 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.

Kedem had managed the re-election of John DeStefano Jr. to a 10th term as mayor of New Haven in 2011 and worked on Hillary Clinton's failed 2008 presidential campaign. Weiner wouldn't say who is replacing him.

Weiner was forced to discuss his online behavior this past week after a gossip website printed excerpts of conversations Weiner had with Indiana college student Sydney Leathers last summer.
