    To their credit, most Democratic Party leaders have (finally) called for New York Rep. Anthony Weiner's resignation. But among liberal commentators and millions of other Americans, there is a great deal of flawed thinking about whether Weiner should resign.The two most common arguments offered against his resigning have been that (1) what Weiner did was not illegal and (2) it was not even as bad as an extramarital affair because he never met, let alone had physical contact with, any of the women to whom he sent naked and semi-naked photos of himself.The argument's entirely beside the point. The point...

    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...

    Rep. Anthony Weiner says he's taking a leave of absence to get treatment. Is he doing it to get help or just to save face?Rep. Anthony Weiner says he's taking a leave of absence, and he's getting treatment. You can add him to the long list of political sex scandals. So, does he really want the help or is it just a PR stunt? "I think this is a prank to make fun of my name. When you're named 'Weiner,' that happens a lot," said Weiner, just days before admitting to sending suggestive photos to women on the internet. The...

    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...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Former presidential candidate John Edwards wants a judge to delay a planned deposition in the privacy lawsuit filed by his mistress over a purported sex tape. Edwards, who was indicted last week on four counts of violating federal campaign finance laws and one count each of criminal conspiracy and making a false statement, said answering questions under oath in the civil suit would violate his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Rielle Hunter filed suit last year against former Edwards campaign aide Andrew Young, alleging that he took from her sensitive materials, including a reputed sex tape showing...

    Anthony Weiner's scandal does not require understanding complicated lobbying laws (Jack Abramoff) or how kickbacks were funneled through labyrinthine layers of bureaucracy (Duke Cunningham), nor does it depend on a partisan view of an issue, like hiring a 24-year-old with no finance experience to remake the entire stock exchange of Iraq. No, it centers on something simple that everyone can relate to: boners on the Internet. And yet, pundits' analysis of Weinergate is still highly dependent on their ideological viewpoint, with liberals defending the New York Democrat even as his hacking claim looked less than credible. Over the past week,...

    New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner maintained Thursday that he does not plan to resign his seat, despite growing calls from members of his own party for the seven-term congressman to step down in the wake of his admission that he conducted inappropriate online communications with at least six women. “I’m not,” Weiner told a reporter for the New York Post on Thursday when asked if he planned to resign. “I’m going to get back to work as best I can.” Weiner said that he is working on making amends with his wife, senior State Department aide Huma Abedin, who...

    Now that the deviant Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-NY, has admitted he’s a serial liar who blames others for problems of his own making, it might be fair to ask just who the hell he thinks he is telling Americans who do not share his despicable fraudulent indecency that he does not trust them with freedom to make moral choices. More than a bit of projection going on here, Weiner, you sick wiener? Let every subversive attempt on your part to disarm your countrymen be met with the reminder that you are a defective, craven wretch who can’t—or more likely won’t—control...

    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...

    The sounds of the slaps you hear are those of the DUers at the Democratic Underground and the Kossacks at the Daily Kos slapping themselves silly for ever believing Anthony Weiner's very obvious lies. The only thing that makes them angrier than their gullibility being publicly exposed is the fact that Weiner apologized to Andrew Breitbart. That really drove them over the edge and contributed greatly to their sudden disillusionment with the New York congressman. To get a handle on the unbelievable extent of their gullibility, we need to take a short trip down memory lane to just over a...

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.
