I need to kick out a roommate nicely, but for no "real" reason. Help.

I know there are many many roommate questions on metafilter -- sorry if I didn't get a Previously in my search.
I have two roommates, G (great) and A (awful) and we share an apartment in NYC. G and I are on the lease, and A has a month-to-month written agreement with me. After months of suffering in silence, G and I spoke and discovered we both can't stand A. He has done nothing 'wrong' -- he pays the rent, doesn't steal, isn't loud, etc -- he just NEVER leaves the apartment and somehow makes both of us really super uncomfortable. Imagine a granola-y Pete Campbell (from Mad Men).
Under these circumstances, what do I say to A to let him know he needs to find a new place to live? We will need to show his room to potential new roommates, so "Oh, my sister is moving to NYC and needs an apartment!" or the like is not an option.
