Anne Torres, communications director for Newark Mayor Cory Booker, is resigning, effective today.
Sources say her resignation comes amid internal adminstration strife in the aftermath of Booker's appearance on Meet the Press.
Booker said he found campaign messaging on both sides of the aisle, including the Obama Campaign against Bain Capital, "nauseating." The remark infuriated Team Obama, who wanted Booker to represent the views of the president as a surrogate of the campaign.
Booker Chief of Staff Mo Butler said, "It was an amicable decision reached by both Anne Torres and our administration. Anne will continue to be a part of our extended family and we wish her luck in her future pursuits."
Torres later released a statement of confirmation.
“Effective today, I am resigning from my position as Communications Director," she said. "It has been a pleasure to serve in this Administration for six years, and as a Newarker, there is no greater reward than to work for the city that you love. I’ve had the opportunity to work with an amazing team, and wish the Mayor the best.”

"What was amusing is that once Stack did it, Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo, also a Democrat, endorsed Christie the next day. It's almost like the two Democrats held hands and jumped into the deep end of the pool." - columnist Agustin Torres.- The Jersey Journal
