Weiner Is Thinking About Resigning
By John Hudson 08:59 AM ET
Rep. Anthony Weiner may be worn out. According to the New York Daily News, the embattled congressman is considering resigning following the latest batch of beefcake photos and calls for his resignation from the Democratic leadership. "A source close to the congressman told the Daily News that he had been adamant about keeping his seat - even amid daily new revelations of his reckless sexting," Alison Gendar reports. "But the unrelenting media coverage, the demands from his party's leaders that he step down and the appearance of more humiliating photos made Weiner realize he may not be able to bull his way through the crisis after all, the source said." Additionally, Wiener's office released a statement to Politico saying "Congressman Weiner takes the views of his colleagues very seriously and has determined that he needs this time to get healthy and make the best decision possible for himself, his family and his constituents.
At this point, the bigwigs calling for his departure include House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman Steve Israel.
But two of his closest allies have not yet urged him to step down: his wife Huma Abedin and Chuck Schumer:

Shouldn't 'beefcake' photos really be taken by someone other than the pervert?
He will announce his resignation about five minutes after he lands his gig with CNN or MSNBC. That’s all he’s waiting on.
He must have gotten his ‘back room’ deal from the democrat thug machine. That is the only way he is going to leave. Follow the money....
Hay Weiner! BEAT IT ! ! !
Call your Congressman and demand Weiners immediate resignation, or have Weiner face an expulsion vote as allowed by the Constitution.
He wont go without a firm pushfrom you.
Take a stand. His behavior is a pox on the body politic, and if we stand for this, well stand for anything.
I agree. He’s waiting on some job offer, the democrats can drum up for him. CNN or MSNBC seem like the perverted match... I mean perfect match.
Beefcake eh....so its a weiner upgrade..............snicker
I thought he was determined to stick it out?
Hardly they were gluten free.
Beefcake? Weiner is the Internet Raincoat Flasher, no different from the guy in the park who shows his privates to anyone, including children.
You gotta quit!
WHERE'S THE BEEFCAKE???!?
Some big-timer in the party has found a job for him so now he doesn't have to worry about going broke, and jobless with no known skills.
>> I thought he was determined to stick it out?
Isn’t “sticking it out” what got him into trouble in the first place?
And Briebart is just rounding the 4th turn of this 400M. More to come. KICK BRIEBART KICK!
“...Follow the money....”
Yep, you can bet that, if/when he resigns, he’s cut a deal for a good chunk of Obama’s “stash” aka “stimulus” money that is coming out of the taxpayers’ pocket. Now we know where all that money is going—into democrat pockets.
"Tapioca pudding pop" is probably a more accurate description of the pics.
I would love to see every Democrat in Congress (House and Senate) go on record either supporting Weiner, or calling for his resignation.
The question America needs answered is “Where’s the beef”
No, he's an injured animal now. Leave him in so he can be defeated by a Republican in the next election.
Beefcake? That must be like a weiner mande with beefcake and beefcake by products.
With his power and potential future influence greatly diminished, it is to the advantage of all who oppose his ideology to keep him in office for as long as possible. Having him there annuls any attempt to use his office to advance leftist ideology—he can’t push anything forward because it would be weakened by identification with him.
His voters won’t select a good replacement—keep him in office.
Just my opinion.
I believe those are called Wienercake now.
Interesting to note that Drudge has completely eliminated this story from his site? That’s usually the first thing I check to see if Weiner has killed himself yet...
Is all this salty talk Kosher?
Nancy Pelosi playing rough with a weiner is not an image I needed to start my day off with. Barf!
I hope his therapist tells him to stick it out, figuratively speaking
More like shortbread.
He said he was. Apparently, Weiner is retracting.
His district is very lib Democrat. An election now would be the best bet for a Republican to take the district, as a year and four months from now this will be a forgotten memory.
Wiener is not an addict. He is what we used to call in the old days an immature jerk. That is before every human foible was defined as an addiction in need of therapy. Do they have rehab facilities to wring the jerk out of someone.I doubt it.
It IS interesting. All morning and not one link to the story. I wonder what he knows..
Shrinkage! It's just shrinkage!
Weiner probably imagines himself as Schumer’s natural heir. He’s hanging on because he wants that senate seat. Those things are “for life” in NY.
“stick it out?”
rear it’s ugly head?
His district is going to be “redistricted” into oblivion and there’s buzz that the Albany Democrats are as interested as anyone in casting Weiner adrift. I can’t imagine any of the party leaders want the Internet Flasher appearing regularly on television.
Personally, I’d rather have the obnoxious Democrat Party poster boy persist in his current position, dominating the headlines and twisting in the wind.
That was a good idea. I called my (useless) Congressman. Then I called the offices of Mike Pence, Marsha Blackburn and Michele Bachmann as well.

If you tweet your meat, you must lose your seat.
ROFL - POST OF THE DAY!!!!!
Oh, get a grip.
Why on earth would you not want Weiner to stay exactly where he is? Just on the face of it, if the rat leaders want him gone, I want him to stay.
Weiner is the perfect face of the Democrat Party. I hope he has the guts to hang tough against the political whores in his own party who only care about the reflection he makes on the party. The simple scum in his district who elected him and consistently re-elect him have spoken, and they want him to stay. If he was to resign it would be like kicking dirt in their faces. Besides, those scum would only replace him with an equally repugnant piece of garbage.
Hang tough, Weiner! Stand tall! DO NOT resign!
