Anthony Weiner steps down

Pelosi and Obama pressured fellow Democrat to resign


 

Anthony Weiner will forfeit his seat in Congress and resign from his position in light of the sex scandal that has tarnished the politician’s reputation. Fellow Democrat Nancy Pelosi was among those who pressured Weiner to resign, requesting he spare the Democratic Party further embarrassment. President Barack Obama added he would step down if he were in Weiner’s shoes. The Democrats were about to conduct an ethics probe into the disgraced lawmaker to investigate further congressional abuse when he decided to resign after long talks with his wife, Huma Abedin. Weiner has admitted sending sexually explicit photos to a university student over Twitter.

  2. Meanwhile nobody who took donations from Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac has stepped down for it…

  3. I guess NOT everyone loves an ‘Oscar Meyer’ Weiner after all. He’s cooked!
