Rep. Anthony Weiner finally considering he may have to resign amid sexting scandal, says source
NY Daily News ^ | 6/12/11 | Alison Gendar

Posted on 06/12/2011 4:48:16 PM PDT by ruralvoter

As a cache of embarrassing new photos appeared Sunday, Rep. Anthony Weiner finally began considering the possibility that he may have to resign.

A source close to the congressman told the Daily News that Weiner had been adamant about keeping his seat - even as the Democratic leadership urged him to quit amid daily new revelations of reckless sexting.

But the unrelenting media coverage, the demands he step down from his party's leadership, and the appearance of more humiliating photos made Weiner realize he may not be able to bull through the crisis after all, the source said.

From some of the articles I read yesterday, it sounds as though New Yawk City wants him to be their mayor. He needs to resign and take them up on their offer.

Does he have any marketable skills, or has he been lining up a lobbying job? I guess Huma will be wearing the pants in this family since he rarely has any on, IF she sticks around.

I think it’s time.

No doubt he’ll be back as a political pundit.

But the man went a bit nuts and he needs to regroup.

I’m glad he is finally getting a clue that staying in office is not an option. If I was Huma I would get a 6 month visa extension to stay in Africa and go on Safari. Eee Gads who wants to come home to this nightmare.

He is ill. And his outbursts of denial and not resigning is a symptom of the disease. He needs immediate psychiatric help.

For the good of the country and the American people, it is only fitting that Weiner resign.

Yes, I pity the fool. Even so, Weiner is such a putz.

“the behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable.”

Wasserman and Weiner are like twins, both are arrogant whiny pushy Jewish socialist crook baby killing degenerate perverted scumbags who despise capitalism and the Founding Fathers, hate Christians and middle America, and ought to be rounded up and shipped to Venezuela along with the rest of the democrats in Congress.

She must be out of her mind if she thinks he will listen to her, shes no better.

No, he doesn’t. I looked up his history, and he’s a career politician with no real-life skills (which is actually fairly remarkable since he didn’t inherit his seat a la a Rockefeller or Kennedy). He’s also heavily in debt, so I think the reason he’s holding on is not because he thinks he didn’t do anything wrong, but because he’s going to end up in the poorhouse otherwise.
I think the DNC pay off his debts to get him to resign; would there be anything illegal about that?

“Marketable skills”? Mushy college liberal arts degree; been in government his entire life. Known for his insane bombastic screaming rants. Pervert. Abuses employer’s property and good name (well, that last item is a joke).

Who would hire that collection of garbage? But you’re right — probably some lobbyist will take him on.

Similar question raised on a news program (must have been Fox).

Earlier, I almost screamed at the screen when Weiner described “getting back to his career”.

Career??????????????

Well, he is a “D” and “D”s normally get a free pass “get out of jail” card from the media and RAT House Leadership. Only “R”s are normally thrown out on their a - - after even minor offenses. So, we will see whether or not the media and the RATS come down on this guy hard enough so as for him to be unable to stand the heat.
