Why should Weiner resign? Clinton lied under oath about having sex in the Oval Office and got away with it.

Why should Weiner be held at a higher standard than the leader of his party?

Another probable Post headline: Pelosi: “Suck it, Weiner”

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.

I don't think that's permitted anymore. I believe 1990 or 1992 was the last year members of Congress were allowed to do that, which is one reason why there was a large turnover in House seats in the early 1990s. A lot of long-time Congressmen took the money and ran when they had the opportunity.

We are going to have Sexual Harassment training at work next month. Perhaps the Weiner could get a job as a poster boy for these bi-annual corporate get togethers.

She kept her word to be loyal to Anthony Weiner, right to the end.

And she has, this is the end.

If Weiner withdraws prematurely...... (pregnant pause)..... then he has no balls.

He shouldn’t resign yet. We need video of an audience of his supporters chanting “Weiner! Weiner! Weiner!...”

Normally a story like this on a Saturday would mean they wanted to bury it but I think the underage girl development meant that Pelosi couldn’t wait any longer.

There was a rumor floating around in the first day or two after his public "apology" that was so vulgar and repulsive it would make any normal person gag, yet in this case it seemed perfectly believable.

At the time, I predicted if that "mystery photo" were released, then the only question would be whether Weiner would leave office by resigning or by harming himself.

C’mon, Nancy. We can’t let personal resonsibility get in the way. Let the Weiner stay! Or is it perhaps out of political concerns you’ve changed your tuna?

Weiner is a coward. He will take the coward’s way out. He’ll OD, but it won’t be enough to kill himself. I’ve seen this movie before.

Maybe because the police are interviewing 17 year old girls about him. Maybe more is known but not revealed....not hard to believe.

I like this one better from a few days ago when it was reported that the Botox Queen and Wicked Witch of the West was calling for a Congressional Ethics Investigation:

"Pelosi Demands Weiner Probe."

Wassername now calls for pulling Weiner out, too. Despicable Democrats change their tune *only* out of political expedience. Not alone, as a good many Republicans are the same way. We need to overthrow the ruling class with our votes ASAP.

The alpha Rats all defended Weiner long enough to make this clear: any later calls for his resignation would be based on expedience, with no contributing element of principle or moral decency.

We need to hammer that point home. The Rats only stopped supporting Weiner because he was hurting them politically, not because they had any problem with what he did.

Clinton didn’t call a producer from CNN a jack ass. That was where Weiner went wrong on the side of the left. It is okay to slap the gop but not his libby buddies.

They can’t force him out, can they?

Yes they can. It takes 2/3rds of the members to expel someone.

Pelosi’s flip-flop on supporting Weiner is as pathetic as George McGovern saying he would back his VP candidate, Thomas Eagleton, “1000%” when it was revealed that Eagleton had undergone psychiatric therapy only to dump him from the ticket the next day.

Congress doesn’t vote to expel one of their own unless that person has been credibly accused of treason against the United States, or convicted of a major crime.

“So which thread is true?”

She’s turned around, both Witch Pelosi and Dope Wasserman-Schultz are telling Weiner to get out.

All the NYC papers have updated their websites.

The worm has turned.

Either they’ve just realized this story isn’t dying and they need to get “distance” now, or there is more bad stuff to come out and they are in full panic mode.

I hope it’s the latter.
