Michigan-native New York political operative Risa Heller has a spread in Glamour magazine in which she talks to Irin Carmon about her P.R. business, and her experiences helping former governor David Paterson and former congressman Anthony Weiner deal with scandal.
"By admitting his infidelity, it ended up being positive for him — he seemed honest," Heller said of Paterson.
Also: "Anthony went through this period of not telling the truth, but ignoring it does not make it go away," and "It only made the glare on him worse."
