Posted on 06/08/2011 4:54:13 PM PDT by Qbert
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.

Yep. I told the wife about three hours ago his resignation would come by late Friday afternoon. :-)
He can co-host a show on CNN.
LOL!!! Ow, just looking at that....
I wonder what Soros funded job they promised him.
Or be a reoccurring guest on Morning Joe.
“Democrat colleagues urging Weiner to resign to preserve his own dignity
Exactly. Just how *much* would he have to do to “lose his dignity” for the Libs?
Definitely! I want televised Congressional hearings, subpoena'd witnesses, photographic evidence, charts of the transcripts in extra large fonts. The hearings should go on for months and hang Weiner around the necks of the democratic party (so to speak).
“He can co-host a show on CNN.”
I don’t even know if that would work. I think he called one of the CNN reporters a “jacka$$” at his press conference.
MSNBC for sure, though.
So, the meshugener schmeckle is “gornisht helfn”.
"Trust me Huma dear, this behavior is quite common. When he gets home throw a few ashtrays at him and everything will go back to normal."
Yeah, even before this incident Anthony Weiner wouldn’t know “dignity” if it ran over him with blaring sirens. The man is a barbarian.
Sure. Because we wouldn’t want this affair to become undignified, would we?
I swear I will never eat another hot dog in this life.
Polish sausage ...um, maybe.
