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.
