House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (D-FL) and fellow New York Representative Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee all called on embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) to resign today.

The move is a complete reversal of Pelosi’s position from just twenty four hours ago.

Talk about a 180. DW-S just a week ago said that this should be a personal matter to Wiener.

THE NEW TACK: Weiner Sick, Needs Treatment to 'Make Himself Well'...

Anthony Weiner to check into treatment center after call from Nancy Pelosi to resign .
Lusty lawmaker Anthony Weiner will be checking into a treatment center - just as two of the country's most powerful Democrats simultaneously called for him to quit.

Weiner will seek help in the sexting scandal that has put his career on life-support, according to political sources.

"Congressman Weiner departed this morning to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person," according to a statment released by his office late Saturday afternoon.

"In light of that, he will request a short leave of absence from the House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well."

The move - which Weiner resisted in the early days of the scandal - comes as Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority leader, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair, each said the lawmaker needs to go.
