Source: Weiner to Resign by Thursday... Democrat colleagues urging... ‘to preserve his own dignity’
Politisite ^ | 6/8/2011 | Politisite

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 Weiner’s colleagues are telling him this afternoon he should resign “to preserve his own dignity.”

This Democratic congressman says that this afternoon’s 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 it’s 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 he’s 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 Weiner’s 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.

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.

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.

Wiener is the “face” of the democratic party and liberals.

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.

Twitter had a notice twice a few hours ago that he was going to resign at 7 tonite, which has passed.

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!
