It is being reported in the national media that Rep. Anthony Weiner will resing from his seat later this morning. And it's about time. Oh well Anthony. I was once impressed with your progressive passion for the cause, but this is just too bothersome and weird. You had to go. Good luck in the future to ya.

I guess he figured things were just getting too hard Wiener. Obama said that this topic was distracting us from discussing more important issues and I believe it Wiener made the right decision. He's a strong democratic fighter and I will miss the fire and passion he had fighting for the fire fighter's healthcare and on other important issues.

King's an asshole, and Weiner's obsessions with other private parts of the body led to his undoing. The two of them together did demonstrate why Congress has an 11 percent approval rating.

agh, sadly I have to agree. Hopefully Wiener is replaced with someone who's less of a dick.

A shame to end your career with the headline "Weiner Pulls Out."



Hopefully the Dems will eventually learn not to be taken in by Breitbart.



Anyone know what the interim appointment or election rules are in NY? Does Cuomo simply make the appointment?

Cuomo would call for a special election, but it may turn out that his district is just going to lose it's representative. NY is losing 2 seats and it usually goes that one seat comes from the western areas and one would come from an area in the city. So we will just have to wait and see. I think that the chances are good that they take Weiner's seat out, since there is no one in it right now.







I hate, hate, hate Breitbart.

Weiner should never have resigned, this is such idiocy. If Vitter, who actually committed a crime by soliciting prostitutes can keep his seat, so can Weiner.

If there were pictures of David Vitter with the prostitue, or in the "diaper" that it was reported was a part of their activities, he would have been dropped like a hot potato by his party, and the other party as well. The fact that Weiner sent pics out of his naked member is just a bit too over the top for people, and I have to agree with that. It's a shame, but he really should have known better than to have done that, and then to lie so forcefully and for so long is just something that is hard to forgive. I am super pissed at him for being such an idiot. I loved his willingness to take on the opposition and to tell it like it is. Why can't men just keep it in their pants, for Christ's sake?
