    Sin is a part of the human condition. If you don’t believe me, ride shotgun with me down I-95 during rush hour in Miami, and you’ll see me manifest more demons than Emily Rose would after 3 a.m. Y’know, we’d all love to think that we are angels, but if the truth be told, more than likely we wouldn’t want our lives or thoughts shown on YouTube for our grandmothers to see—unless, of course, you’re Snooki and don’t give a shizzle that everyone and their dog knows that you’re a pirate hooker. Make that money, girl. Hey, if you’re going...

    While Rep. Anthony Weiner may no longer have the benefit of Congress’ generous health care plan once he resigns, he will still be able to collect his pension and other benefits that could total more than $1 million during his lifetime. According to an analysis of his available benefits by the National Taxpayers Union, the New York Democrat’s pension and a savings plan lawmakers have access to similar to a 401(k) could be worth $1.12 million to $1.28 million.

    Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) will resign from his seat in Congress, heeding calls from President Barack Obama, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and dozens of other congressional Democrats, sources confirm to POLITICO. The resignation ends nearly three weeks of tumultuous political controversy since the New York congressman sent a lewd picture of himself over Twitter which he claimed at first was a result of a hack, and later admitted he had sent himself. According to two sources, Weiner made up his mind to resign Wednesday night, and shortly after began making calls to inform...

    WASHINGTON — Representative Anthony D. Weiner has told friends that he plans to resign his seat after coming under growing pressure from his Democratic colleagues to leave the House in the wake of revelations of his lewd online exchanges with women, said a person told of Mr. Weiner’s plans. The news comes as Democratic leaders prepared to hold a meeting on Thursday to discuss whether to strip the 46-year-old Congressman of his committee assignments, a blow which would severely damage his effectiveness.

    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's Nissan Pathfinder is unregistered, DMV says

    Rep. Anthony Weiner's Nissan Pathfinder is unregistered, DMV says BY Alison Gendar DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU Monday, June 13th 2011, 4:00 AM Lying about sexting apparently isn't Rep. Anthony Weiner's only gray area. When Weiner (D-Queens, Brooklyn) was photographed by the Daily News fleeing the Capitol in his Nissan Pathfinder, it was clear the July 2007 registration sticker in his window was expired, and there was no inspection sticker to be seen. Weiner, through a staffer, said the 1988 Nissan Pathfinder was registered in New York State. Not so, said the state Department of Motor Vehicles. The New York license...

    SOMEWHERE between Abu Dhabi and Lusaka, the US's most powerful diplomat sat down with her closest aide last week and talked of straying husbands, predatory women and internet sex. It was not quite what Hillary Clinton had intended when she set off on her latest tour as US Secretary of State; yet it is hard to think of anyone in Washington better equipped to offer advice on the painful fallout from a sexual scandal. For once, the shenanigans had not involved Clinton's husband, Bill. Yet the saga of congressman Anthony Weiner's penis and how its picture turned up in cyberspace...

    The Anthony Weiner scandal has created a dilemma for female Democrats who are turned on by his politics but turned off by his sexual shenanigans. "He's a pervert," said Lata Lewis, 31, a school safety officer from Cypress Hills. "It's not cool." The sext maniac may still have the backing of his wife, Huma Abedin, but other women say they are appalled by his boneheaded behavior. "It's laughable how stupid a man can be," said Kathleen Peet, 70, a Chelsea retiree. "It's very offensive," said Trina Brown, 40, a student from Hell's Kitchen. "Before this, I had respect for him."

    Protesters To Call For Rep. Weiner's ResignationReported by: WROC-TV (Queens, NY) -- Protesters are set to gather outside New York Congressman Anthony Weiner's home in Queens on Sunday to demand his resignation. The embattled Democrat released a statement on Saturday saying he was requesting a leave from Congress to get treatment to make him a "better husband and healthier person." The move comes after top Democratic leaders have called on him to resign and seek counseling. House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz both called for Weiner to step down over the online sexting scandal....

    The news is just now breaking that Leader Pelosi and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is throwing Anthony Wiener under the bus. Supposedly they want this upstanding public servant to resign after chit-chatting with a 17 year-old girl from Delaware. Here is my theory: This is a Republican setup. That's right -- someone hired this "girl" to contact and carry on a relationship with the Congressman. The penis? Also a setup. The penis was planted on the Congressman in an attempt to get him to show it off to unsuspecting females (we are Democrats, after all, and lack male genitalia! It...

    The backstory on Weiner’s implosion So the Democratic leadership has called on Anthony Weiner to resign, in the wake of news that he had connected with a 17 year old girl through social media. The family has claimed that nothing was untoward, but suddenly, a fusillade of statements came from Dem leaders today demanding he resign. Here’s what happened, according to a senior Democratic aide. Nancy Pelosi had been privately urging Weiner to resign and seek treatment for days, the aide says. But he told her today that he would take a temporary leave of absence and seek treatment. Once...

    It was simply without precedent. The case of a prominent politician sending embarrassing messages, combined with the hijacking of a press conference by a combative, high-profile conservative journalist. Except that the bizarre Anthony Weiner-Andrew Breitbart dust-up at Manhattan’s Sheraton Hotel isn’t without precedent at all. In fact, six decades ago, history witnessed an eerily similar altercation at a Philadelphia hotel news conference about a politician’s inappropriate communications—and his own confrontation with the Andrew Breitbart of his day.

    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...
