Anthony Weiner was not trying to find women to have relations with the way Chris Lee was
that is an important distinction. Anthony Weiner acting inappropriately online but he wasn't trying to have physical relationships with these women. Moreover, he has not used morality as an issue to win votes in his Congressional District. Therefore he shouldn't resign.
One of their favorite outs to wrong behavior.

4. Well, gather those twigs and burn him at the stake.
Sorry, what an asshole conclusion. NOBODY is required to sign a sexual purity oath in our constitution. Which remains blessedly free of interference in our personal interests.
YOU wouldn't have elected THOMAS JEFFERSON. You wouldn't have allowed Ben Franklin to serve in our government.
Haven't you ever studied ANY American history? Franklin Delano Roosevelt wasn't good enough for you.

2. What about being really, really stupid?
I'm not saying he necessarily should resign, but in this political climate, and given the way stuff can metastasize throughout the social media, isn't it pretty damn stupid to send photos of your junk to strange women on the internet where those photos can be seen, copied, possible altered, and used against you by political enemies (not to mention that it also seems a bit pervy)? Why would he make himself a sitting duck for the likes of Breitbart? That's seriously stupid.translation: Sending pictures of your junk to women you have never met, who may be underage, and who are not your wife is OK, just stupid.Tony_FLADEM Donating Member (1000+ posts) Mon Jun-06-11 05:33 PM

3. Yes, I agree what he did is stupid. But unless something new comes out
this isn't something he should resign over. If he was going online to find women to be with that would be another issue.
