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.

LOL—Hillary’s probably the father.
He WILL get offered some sweet job after he resigns. Look at Etheridge- the Dem Rep from NC who assaulted the boy interviewing him by grabbing him and saying, “Who you, who you”. He didn’t get reelected but on February 1, 2011, Governor Bev Perdue appointed Etheridge as head of the North Carolina Office of Economic Recovery and Investment.
They sure look out for their own. Like criminals who cover for each other and have each other’s back.
Yes, I'm sure she can...
5. Hillary and a turkey baster
A wedding where a Jew is marrying a Muslim, officiated by an impeached President...What could go wrong?
Like Bill Clinton marching around with a huge Bible during the Lewinsky scandal, maybe Anthony can march around Mecca carrying the Torah. Now THAT would make him popular.
...to preserve his dignity?
Too late for that. Think everyone sees through that line.
or Dems seek to pull Weiner out. He came up short of expectations.
Hell of a way for a man’s political career to peter out.
The hubris of these Beltway elite is stunning. Anyone with half a brain knew there was worse stuff out there — especially the fool that sent it.
Weiner is offering to resign in exchange for a job that pays $175K or so. Once he gets that job, he will resign in a heartbeat. He has about 45 hours left to find a deal.
You left Hillary off the list.
Can they get Schumer to resign too?
The guy doesn’t even have the proverbial fig leaf left.
But you’ve insulted dogs....
That’s the way the ball bounces. Sometimes life is nuts.
Please don’t share what keywords you used to find that!
yes, but the Wiener will be erected from the ashes one day...
Could child services take away a kid from a parent who did what Weiner has done?
Darn it. I wanted him to stay. Now they'll just give him a cushy job behind the scenes and he'll still have his say on things without the face time.
That dog won't hunt.
Der Weiner probably thinks this poor child will save his own arse.
Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton disagree.
Maybe when she watches lingerie football.
His lawyer is claiming that the evidence won’t stand up in court.
I deeply regret that (poor dogs) misinterpreted my (error in judgment). When I made my initial (statement) I intended for (poor dogs) to (get the joke) and not come to the conclusion that I (disrespected our canine citizens). I love (the children) and with all that is within me Ill (try to be more clear in my Demo-hate) . Now please join with me to work for a better America.
WHAT dignity ???
He pissed ANY shred of it he had away when he LIED and pointed fingers at "hackers".
How’s about carnival freak?
The season is just starting.
Who would have figured this might happen when Bill Clinton officiates at your wedding?
If the Breitbart pic is genuine - then she prolly WAS happy with Weiner ...
He could name his son cocktail weenie.
He will end up as a lobbyist with Planned Parenthood.
He’s the gift that keeps giving!! Don’t resign!! Tough it out!! We’re behind you 100% posterboy!!
Not to worry, the village will raise the child!
No, Tony no. Don’t let the bastids grind you down. The progressive movement needs you too much.
Weiner was a beard. Huma was beard.
This is like Edwards as Father of the year... absurd.
Re post 44, there is a photo of the “beautiful” Huma that so many Freepers rave about. Does anyone really believe that she is beautiful? Looks like she was hit by Bo Diddley’s ugly stick. Yuck!
"Save Tony Weiner - Do It For the Children"
Or maybe 'With the Children." Whatever.
I am going with option 5 - Hillary!
Not only has the ship sailed, it sunk today with the release of the Breitbart “junk” photo.....
After what I’ve seen today, he doesn’t have any dignity left to preserve. But breitbart was right about the guy resigning before noon tomorrow. I thought he might last til Friday.
Well, at least Huma is with the baby's father.
Yup, this is to preserve Hillary and Humas dignity.
Hello, Weiner? were going to fort marcey on friday. Dont bother packing....
It’s not Weiner’s dignity the Dhimmies are worried about, it’s avoiding being splashed by guts and goo as he thrashes around messily in the press and all over the intarwebs.
You can’t make stuff like this up....
Dee-Eye-Vee-Oh... to follow.
One better. Has anyone seen a picture of Huma that doesn’t look like Margaret Hamiliton as the Wicked Witch of the West? Pointy chin; nose hanging like a wet towel. LOL
Andrew B. predicted the same on Twitter...coming up now on Greta.
He has no choice now, because the porn pic he sent out has hit the net.
Like others are saying, if he stayed in he would be ineffictive because no one can trust him anymore.
But it would be good for the right, because he would be vilified for his untrustworthyness every time he went on a show with on of his lefitst yelling screeds.
I can't believe that I haven't seen my take on this posted here or in any news stories or on the pundit circle jerks on FOX etc.
He comes out to apologize, because he got caught.
No other reason period.
Proof of that is that when he got married almost a year ago, he promised Hilliary's gf when he married her that he would stop doing it. (after doing it for two years at that time
Nice of him to admit to her when they got married that he was communicating with other women on the www.
You can bet he didn't tell her how explicit his exploits were though.
Being as he could lie to his new wife, and then keep doing the things that he said he would not do, it's for sure that he cannot be trusted in any way shape or form.
That's the crux of it, he will lie when he needs to and not care what he promises anyone.
If he can't be trusted in a marriage relationship, how much more can he not be trusted in Congress?
The left used him for their main attack dog, now he is history.
And when the baby is born, and looks just like Hilliary, he's gonna freak out!
