I hope he has to be put on the sex offender registry.
They should have just left the Weiner hang out to dry.
Pelosi joins the culturally backward?
I guess we will see if his need for his 157,000 and his debts are too much for Nancy or will he get a pay out ( bribe).
Probable Post headline: Pelosi Wants to Yank Weiner
So long Tony, it’s all over now.
Hang in there Weiner! Don’t give in! They just want to get rid of you because they don’t want this mess hanging around for election time.
Dig in your heels and tell them to shove it. they don’t have your best interests at heart. The call for your resignation is purely for THEIR political benefit.
oh my gosh. Nancy P. wants him gone?????
I heard that Weiner is broke, financially speaking, and that he needs to hang on so he gets his $160,000+ congressional paychecks as long as possible.
You figure that he has no real political allies, so he won’t get some appointed political job anywhere soon. He’s not going to be elected to mayor or any other job. He won’t be able to go on the lecture circuit and make money. He can’t write a book about his experiences and make money that way.
Heck, Huma may cut him off, for all we know. Maybe among the matters exposed will be far worse than the exposure of his bodily parts. We may also see exposure of the marriage being somewhat a sham, and the marriage having been arranged by the Clintons for their own political purposes.
Maybe the NYT will ask for copies of all his emails.
Weener the Member needs to withdraw.
If the Dem voters as a whole didn’t mind children being seduced by adults the Weiner would be allowed to stay.
I’m wondering if Weiner wants to stay on so he could run for reelection, lose and get to keep the leftover millions in campaign contributions. He has no marketable skill outside of politics.
He can always become a prostitute and move in with Barney Franks.
Huma may bobit?
The Constitution requires that member of the House be replaced only by an election held in the congressional district of the former representative.
“When vacancies happen in the Representation from any State, the Executive Authority thereof shall issue Writs of Election to fill such Vacancies.” — Article I, Section 2, Clause 4 of the U.S. Constitution
According to the US Constitution and state law, the governor of the state calls for a special election to replace the vacant House seat. The full election-cycle must be followed including political party nominating processes, primary elections and a general election, all held in the congressional district involved. The entire process often takes as long as from three to six months.
While a House seat is vacant, the office of the former representative remains open, its staff operating under the supervision of the Clerk of the House of Representatives. The people of the affected congressional district do not have voting representation in the House during the vacancy period. They can, however, continue to contact former representative’s interim office for assistance with a limited range of services as listed below by the Clerk of the House.
Until a new Representative is elected, the vacant congressional office cannot take or advocate positions of public policy. Constituents may choose to express opinions on legislation or issues to your elected Senators or wait until a new Representative is elected. Mail received by the vacant office will be acknowledged. The staff of the vacant office can assist constituents with general information concerning the status of legislation, but cannot provide analysis of issues or render opinions.
“Assistance with Federal Government Agencies (Casework):
The staff of the vacant office will continue to assist constituents who have cases pending with the office. These constituents will receive a letter from the Clerk requesting whether the staff should continue assistance or not. Constituents who do not have pending cases but require assistance in matters relating to federal government agencies are invited to contact the nearest district office for further information and assistance.”
Demonic leader Nazi can call to her wrinkled content,but only a Idiot would listen.
Pelosi’s Weiner Probe Ends Prematurely
The frikkin dude is RADIOACTIVE...and just within a few hours.
Something is leaking. It might be an even more disgusting photo of the pervert, superceding that which was "ahem!", leaked by accident by Mr. Breitbart on a radio show. (Just a guess). Of various acrobatics by Mr. Weiner and his weiner.
This Congressschlong could see time in the iron chateau if it is serious enough. Still, he will stand his ground--guaranteed, in his next face off with the press. He is devoid of the concept of "public servant", and lording it over the massess, will insist on staying because he is there for their own good. Sick man. Truly one sick puppy.
On top of it, a national security risk, and Congressional hearings to deny him any security clearance should be threatened by the appropriate Majority (GOP) leadership of a Congressional committee, probably Standards or Homeland Security. No low level employee in our DOD or Intelligency Agencies could get away with this...a snotty, fast talking, slick, lawyered-up Congresspecker can. Go figure.
I agree. They can’t force him out, can they?
Reckon what changed since yesterday?
Pelosi represents one of the most morally corrupt districts and yet she has the audacity to ask for Weiners resignation?
The poll results must be a real drag for the democrats.
perhaps it was the twittering with the 17 year old that changed Pelosi’s mind
Yesterday per Pelosi he stays.
Today per Pelosi, he goes.
What’s in between?
Osama 72 virgins.
Democrats 72 versions.
Oh it was o.k. with the Dems’ of Weiner’s pervert behavior.
But suddenly with no explanation, they want him gone....
Elections are coming.
Too bad he was the gift that keeps on giving.
If I had a show on CNN or PMSNBC I'd be a little worried right now. Mr. Weiner is going to need a time slot.
The Mass. equivalent of a “weiner” is a (Fenway) “Frank”.
Jerry Holbert cartoon, Boston Herald; Anthony and Barney in a bar.
“Yes, I’ve had a few embarrassing moments myself! Maybe we’re related!”
New polling data is out......
She doesn’t want him gone. She is playing CYA. If he doesn’t resign, she can say she tried. Same with the ethics investigation. Kick the can down the road.
Ha. It’s like the wicked witch of the west telling the wicked warlock of the east that he’s a bbbbbaaaadddd man!
I don’t understand this at all... I mean, what has the Weiner done that was so bad? It’s not like he did anything outrageous like e-mailing a bare-chested picture of himself.
... that's because just yesterday I was calling for a Weiner probe ... and look what it got me!
“I agree. They cant force him out, can they?”
Honestly don’t know.
Might depend on the seriousness of the offense?
To be fair, he never did get his question answered:
“If I’m giving a speech in front of 45,000 people and someone in the back throws a mud pie, how much time should I devote to the mud before getting back to the speech?”
There, I fixed it.Rats never resign.
>>He’s gone. And he’ll probably be arrested for tweeting the DE girl too.<<
I want wiener to fight to hold on to his spot as long and hard as possible (pun only partially intended).
So long as he is around, the nation can see what the democratic party “stands” for.
Fight, wiener, fIght!
Yep, wonder why Nancy and Wasserman Schulz are now calling him to resign? Are there more bombshells to drop in this case? Maybe the idea that he’s contacting underage girls forced their hand?
Weiner is politically radioactive, and Weiner’s a good Democrat. Get more popcorn as we wait to see what happens next.
The media can’t focus on Palin’s emails while Weiner is running amok.
The under age girl was the last straw, he can’t get past that one. If it were just all adults, he might have bluffed it out like sick willie did.
He will cut a deal on this one, they always get away with it, they are better than us serfs.
We can’t even get rid of the tax cheats like Rangel. demwits have no shame factor.
It would be great if he stayed. A highly pub(l)ic stain on the Demon Party.
I do too. Maybe we can form some sort of a support group. ; )
“Weiner slapped by Pelosi”
There was a story here yesterday about his co-op apartment in New York City that was listed for sale for a while, then suddenly got pulled off the market just a couple of days ago. I’m not sure what it means, but I’m certain it has something to do with whatever his “future plans” might be.
