Anthony Weiner checks into treatment center as Nancy Pelosi, other top Dems call on him to resign

Lusty lawmaker Anthony Weiner checked into a treatment center for his randy behavior Saturday - but it may not be enough to save his job.

Weiner will be seeking help in the wake of the sexting scandal that put his career on life support, just as several of the country's most powerful Democrats simultaneously called on him to quit.

"Congressman Weiner departed this morning to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person," said a statement released by his office.

"In light of that, he will request a short leave of absence from the House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well."

Political sources said Weiner started at-home therapy last week and made the decision to check into a treatment facility for a full evaluation of his sexual urges and compulsive behavior.

It was not immediately clear where Weiner went or what sort of help he'll be receiving.

Does his basement really count? The little pervert could be down there taking more pictures.

I think all the Dem leadership did was a bit of CYA. They can’t force him out and he won’t go on his own so it’s easy to make a statement like that.

I really hope he can hang on thru Nov ‘12. Maybe we can watch the John Edwards trial in the fall of ‘12.

Ole Nancy just never got a handle on that swamp thingy.

Well, if Wiener problems last for more than 4 hours, you need to seek medical treatment. His 15 minutes of infamy are well overdue.

In addition to seeking a urologist, he also needs to seek advice from a proctologist, since he has been acting like one of the biggest A-holes in the beltway - he may be the biggest among them, and we have identified so many.

But, maybe his District like a priapismatic A-hole representing them.

Weiner started at-home therapy

Virtual therapy for a dude into virtual sex.

Does he have a "blow-up" therapist he is using there at home?

Weiner is lucky. There have been some dramatic developments in aversion therapy that make it possible to cure jerks, fools and even foolish jerks. They'll just have to hook Weiner up to some electrodes and give him a hefty jolt every time he acts stupid or obnoxious. He has a good chance of making a full recovery so that he can lead a normal life, unless, of course, the therapy kills him which might not be the worst possible outcome. Would anyone miss him?

Samuel Jackson once famously said: “Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel”.

Today it could be said that the first refuge of liberal crooks and perverts is the calim of victimhood and a rush to seek “professional help to cure their imaginary infliction.

Liberals caught with their hand in the cookie jar or their organs hanging in the breeze aren’t really crooks or perverts - the devil made them do it.

Or was it a naughty Mommy, some strange virus or rampant new bacteria?

But with some “professional help”, a huge capacity for public ridicule, and the support of a liberal press they will be cured, repaired and good as new in no time at all.

This is nothing but a dodge.

He’s just trying to get the press off his ass so the Dem leadership will stop pressuring him to resign. He’s trying to hide.

Therapy will have no effect on someone this narcissistic. He doesn’t think there is anything wrong with him.

The only lesson he will learn from this debacle is more discretion next time.

Weiner is waiting on Huma to get back before he makes a definite decision on what to do.
Interesting that there has been no report of support from her or any kind of statement. Hillary must be advising her.
My guess is that Weiner is going to throw himself at her for mercy and for her to talk to Bill Clinton about a nice mid 6 figure job at one of his foundations to ease his way out. He needs that kind of job to pay his debts and take care of Huma and the baby coming.
It's all so sordid.

Maybe he can call Michael Douglas and get in that Sex Clinic he went to.
It’s all such a sham. There is no real help for a guy 46 years old who still thinks he is in High School, check out his Twitter photo as evidence.

“Can someone with an addiction to treat be terminated from his job in NY?”
Not if they are a Democrat.
Wiener has found the perfect way out of his predicament. Instead of being found guilty of violation of “Congressional Ethics” and having to face even a farcical “investigation” by his fellow reprobates, he now has “a medical problem” and must be treated with kindness and sympathy.
Anyone that would vote for this scumbag has the intellect of a dung beetle.

Anyone who really believes that The Weiner “checked into rehab” is an idiot. This story is for public consumption in their effort to take some of the heat off of The Weiner and get him some public sympathy. You can’t fix stupid.

Somehow I don't think a feel good “treatment” program will do much good for someone with no sense of decency or morals. I am reminded of a South Park episode that lampooned celebrity sex addicts and their so called treatment programs.
