Glen Caplin, the spokesman who has been with Congressman Anthony Weiner since the mayoral race in 2005, is leaving to take a job with Rubenstein Associates.
In an emailed statement Caplin said, “Anthony has been a great mentor for the past 2 1/2 years, and it’s been a tremendous experience. But I’m excited about the opportunity to dive back into the private sector end of the pool with a legend such as Howard and his outstanding team of people.”
In other staffing news, Weiner has picked up a new chief of staff, Geoff Plague, who has previously worked as a legislative director for Senator Byron Dorgan, Representative Steny Hoyer and Representative Rob Andrews.
Plague fills the vacancy created after Kay Sarlin left. She’s now at Glover Park.
