NEW YORK CITY — In the latest blow to former Rep. Anthony Weiner's redemptive run for mayor, his campaign manager, Danny Kedem, has stepped down, the campaign confirmed Sunday.

The move comes just days after Weiner admitted to having additional online sexting trysts after resigning from office in 2011.

Kedem joined the campaign in May. His resume includes work on HIlary Clinton's 2008 presidental campaign and, more recently, Mark Murphy's failed Democratic congressional campaign against Staten Island Republican Rep. Michael Grimm.

Weiner's latest sexting revelation appears to have hurt him in the polls. According to the latest survey, Weiner dropped from front-runner to distant second behind City Council Speaker Christine Quinn.

The Weiner campaign declined to comment on Kedem's departure.
