Politisite is hearing one source close to the Congressman that Weiner will resign by the end of the day or early Thursday.
A Marist poll by Weiners own constituents say he should not resign by a slim majority.
CNN is reporting that Privately colleagues are recommending that he resign quickly.
It was reported that Weiners wife, Huma Abedin, is Pregnant adding to the family stress level. Ironically Huma is with Secretary of State Clinton on Business who can probably help console Adedin during this time.
Democrat colleagues urging Weiner to resign to preserve his own dignity
A Democratic lawmaker familiar with discussions with and about Anthony Weiner tells CNN that Weiners colleagues are telling him this afternoon he should resign to preserve his own dignity.
This Democratic congressman says that this afternoons public call by Democratic Rep. Allyson Schwartz, D-Pennsylvania, for Weiner to resign is part of a new stepped up effort to force Weiner out. The source said the effort includes private and public calls explicitly telling him its time to leave Congress.
There is increased resentment by his colleagues that far from having a press conference where he was going to tell the truth and roll with the flames, the flames are just getting worse and hes dragging us through it. We really thought by now, after the press conference, we would be able to talk about the Republicans Social Security privatization bill and instead we keep talking about Anthony Weiner. And people are getting angrier and more resentful, said the Democratic congressman.
The lawmaker would not speak for the record in order to discuss private conversations, and would not give the names of Weiners colleagues making these private calls.

“Ironically Huma is with Secretary of State Clinton on Business who can probably help console Adedin during this time. “
Hillary is looking forward to every minute of “consoling”.
On the " ALL STARS , they claimed Weiner wasn't liked before the scandal.
Oh dear God, this man will be a father, God help the child. I hope he grows up and gets his act together for the child’s sake.
We really should band together all Conservatives and beg him to stay. Wiener is the “face” of the democratic party and liberals.
Because he was such a dignified guy to start with...
“...to preserve his personal dignity”?? Really???
Yeah, that’s the immediate thought. It’s a little late for that.
“Democrat colleagues urging Weiner to resign to preserve his own dignity”
That ship has sailed.
Do you still get the Congressional pension if you resign?
That's a nice way of putting it....
Here, kick it!
Finally, the child they dreamed of.
I thought he would wait till 3 pm Friday.
Weiner has “dignity?” LOL.
Who the hell is she to tell him to resign?
Just because she is Jewish?
She's been in Congress since 2005, Weiner is a degenerate sex pervert marxist and psycho, in other words, a true party member.
Allyson Schwartz needs to check her "Twitter", she has mail.
