BOSTON (AP) - The domestic partner of Senate Majority Leader Stanley Rosenberg has quit his job at a public relations company after he was reassigned to the firm’s Florida office.

The Boston Globe (https://bit.ly/1wXpGyP ) reported Monday that Bryon Hefner abruptly quit Regan Communications Group.

Hefner, who joined the firm in May, drew attention after allegedly mocking outgoing Sen. President Therese Murray on Twitter and boasting about his influence in the Legislature. Rosenberg is in line to succeed Murray as Senate president.

Rosenberg, a Democrat from Amherst, has lived with Hefner since 2009.

The Globe reported Saturday that Hefner and Rosenberg attended a state government conference on St. Thomas after the senator had apparently assured fellow lawmakers that he was keeping his relationship and work separate.

An aide to George Regan, the firm’s chairman and CEO, said he had nothing to add.
