Trump shake-up: Sean Spicer, Anthony Scaramucci both have Palm Beach County ties

Sean Spicer, left, and Anthony Scaramucci

Sean Spicer resigned as President Donald Trump‘s press secretary, reportedly because he disagreed with Trump  naming Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.

Like part-time Palm Beacher Trump, both Spicer and Scaramucci have Palm Beach County connections.

Spicer worked for former Republican U.S. Rep. Mark Foley in the late 1990s, then worked on the 2000 re-election campaign of the late Republican Rep. Clay Shaw for a Palm Beach-Broward congressional seat.

Scaramucci opened an investment management office in Palm Beach Gardens in 2015. Click here for an article on Scaramucci’s venture by esteemed Palm Beach Post scribe Jeff Ostrowski.
