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 Weiners colleagues are telling him this afternoon he should resign to preserve his own dignity.
This Democratic congressman says that this afternoons 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 its 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 hes 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 Weiners colleagues making these private calls.

Resign you arrogant/ignorant POS scumbag politician. GET OUT of our life. Devalue the life of your pathetic wife and the lives of your enablers.
So it's not really about Weiner's dignity (all he has is ego anyway), these worthless POS's just want it to go away so they can go back to lying about Republicans. I'm shocked. /s

You got it.
Those kind, caring Liberals...
“What am I missing here?”
What am *I* missing here? It almost seems like you admire the scumbag...
Cats sure do put up with some s**+. “If I didn’t need another ten hours of sleep, I’d *so* kick this dog’s ass right now.”
Yeah, you have good points.
But I don’t know that there’s anything we can do about it. When the Rats want somebody in their inner circle gone, they’re like the Mafia. The only way Weiner stays I think, is if he alone takes on the entire Dem party... which would definitely add another round of awesome entertainment.
I read that most of Weiner’s staff has quit and are running around the halls of congress trying to get new jobs. That should be a sign for Anthony that things are going to end badly.
Mickey Ds is hiring, but a schmuck like that has no worries about the future in the banana republic (yes, we’re not a banana democracy!)
The big story is that better than 50% of his constituents are fine with it, are we surprised at the decadence of NY....Nooooo. Lets be honest NYC consists of 10% elites, 70 percent idiots that listen to them and 20% Patriot’s.
Waddya bet she has a "miscarriage"?
That horse is out of the barn.
That cat's out of the bag.
Elvis has left the building.
That fruit is out of the loom.
Hilary and a strap-on. Ow! My eyes! My eyes!
