    By now you've probably seen enough -- literally -- of Anthony Weiner, the New York City Congressman embroiled in a scandal involving online relationships with several women, including his sending suggestive photos taken from the House of Representatives gym. Members of both parties have called on Weiner to resign. The raunchy emails from the married Congressman aren't terribly shocking. Several studies have estimated that more than half of men and women are unfaithful to their spouses. The public outrage has stemmed in my opinion not from Weiner's tweets, but his deception. Rep. Weiner lied to reporters, instructed others to lie...

    A defiant Rep. Anthony Weiner will not resign and will instead seek treatment even as a the top leaders of the Democratic Party abandoned him en masse Saturday after it was revealed that he had communicated online with a 17-year-old Delaware girl. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the party’s top campaign chiefs — Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) — all called on Weiner to resign in statements released within minutes of each other. But Weiner has ignored those calls and announced Saturday afternoon that he’s seeking...

    Ramesh, as an antidote to Maureen Dowd’s take, here’s Weiner’s former girlfriend Kirsten Powers. When the Twit hit the fan, Kirsten received certain assurances from him about his innocence and, based on those, went out on Fox and elsewhere and defended him. Unlike too many my-Democrat-right-or-wrong types, she’s done with him: As I have recovered from the shock of seeing an old friend’s life unravel and have had time to get my mind around the extensive and sociopathic lying in which he engaged, there seems to be no other choice than for him to step aside and stop hurting his family, friends, and...

    Rep. Anthony Weiner's Queens and Brooklyn constituents sounded off on his shocking sexting admissions Monday - with some calling for his political head. Several said they could never support Weiner after he admitted to exchanging sexually explicit messages and pictures with six women - and lying about it. "I think he should be barred out of politics. He's disgusting and a pervert," said Ronnie Homan, 50, of Borough Park, Brooklyn. Maya Goldstein, 44, of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, agreed, and said the congressman's teary TV breakdown shows he needs help.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A top Republican on Tuesday called on Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner to resign, saying Congress cannot afford to be distracted by the sexually charged photos and tweets he sent to women. House Republican Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia became the first top lawmaker to say that Weiner, an outspoken liberal who easily won a seventh two-year term in the House of Representatives last year, "should resign". "We've got a lot of serious challenges going on in this country and a lot of work for Congress to do. The last thing we need is to be immersed in...

    Re “Tearful Weiner Admits Sending Explicit Picture” (front page, June 7): As a constituent of Representative Anthony D. Weiner, I would hope that he takes the dignified course of action and steps down. With these pictures in the public forum and the possibility of more looming, his ability to defend my interests has diminished. Mr. Weiner has let down all of his constituents and no longer carries the reputation needed to actively debate on a national stage. He should leave the political arena.

    A new woman has come forward with what she claims are photographs, chats, and emails with Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY). These appear to undermine severely Rep. Weiner’s explanations that he was the victim of a “prank” or a “hack.” The detailed new information suggests that the Brooklyn- and Queens-based representative and the young woman in question were involved in an online, consensual relationship involving the mutual exchange of intimate photographs. BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com were approached regarding this information more than a week prior to the separate, independent event of Friday, May 27, 2011, when a link to the now-infamous “gray...

    The other day, Tommy Christopher published an interesting article regarding two underage girls who had claimed to have incriminating DMs from Anthony Weiner. Christopher called the girls “Betty” and “Veronica” and said that they had admitted to him that they had lied. That may be . . . but there are some aspects of their claims (and those of their parents) that I think merit some examination. (...)
