From the NY Times:
It did not take Stu Loeser long to find a high-profile client.
Mr. Loeser, who stepped down last month after six and a half years as Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s press secretary, has been hired by Speaker Sheldon Silver to help navigate a sexual harassment scandal engulfing the State Assembly.
Mr. Loeser will not be paid with government money, though it was not immediately clear whether he would be paid by Mr. Silver’s campaign or from central Assembly Democratic campaign accounts. He will work closely with Mr. Silver’s main political consultant, Jonathan Rosen.
Since leaving the mayor’s office, Mr. Loeser has set up his own media consulting and strategy business. He has long ties to Mr. Silver, a Manhattan Democrat. Mr. Loeser’s wife, Jessica, once ran Mr. Silver’s district office and is now a district leader in Mr. Silver’s Assembly district. Mr. Silver was also a witness at Mr. Loeser’s wedding.
