A Citi Habitats broker who spoke to the press about Anthony Weiner’s search for a cheaper apartment in Gramercy Park was bashed by the formal mayoral candidate on Wednesday.

After showing Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, a three-bedroom rental at 340 East 23rd Street with an asking price of $8,000, broker Brian Morgan told the New York Post all about the tour for Page Six, according to the New York Observer.

When the story came out, Weiner took to Twitter, blasting Morgan as a “no-class broker.” In his defense, Morgan told the Observer that he would never call Page Six about a client, which Weiner is not. But the onetime U.S. Congressman wasn’t very forgiving.

“He’s right,” Weiner told the Observer in an email. “He had no obligation not to be a slimey broker. I’m sure he is a perfect representative of the values at Citi Habitats.” Weiner currently rents a four-bedroom pad at 254 Park Avenue for between $12,000 and $14,000 per month, reports show. [NYO] — Angela Hunt
