Disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner's refusal to resign has put the heat on his former mentor, Sen. Charles Schumer.....The top-ranking New York Democrat has been under intense pressure to convince a reluctant Weiner to step down, sources told The Post.
The senior senator has been stewing ever since Weiner accidentally tweeted his crotch shot over the Memorial Day weekend -- and fellow Democrats spent all last week urging Schumer to force Weiner out, insiders said....Weiner had assured longtime ally Schumer the lewd twit-pic was the work of a hacker.....SCHUMER - Says he's heartbroken.
Schumer was "pretty pissed off" when the truth was revealed, said a source with knowledge of the event....In an e-mail yesterday, Schumer said the scandal left him "heartbroken" -- but he stopped short of calling for Weiner to resign...."For those of us who are longtime friends of Anthony Weiner his wrongful behavior is distressing and saddening," Schumer said.
