Thread: Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign
#1 Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign06-16-2011, 10:00 AM
Rep. Anthony D. Weiner has told friends he plans to resign his seat after coming under growing pressure from his Democratic colleagues to leave the House in the wake of revelations of his lewd online exchanges with women, the New York Times is reporting.
The news comes as Democratic leaders prepared to hold a meeting on Thursday to discuss whether to strip the 46-year-old New York congressman of his committee assignments, a blow that would severely damage his effectiveness, the paper says.
Weiner, a Democrat, came to the conclusion that he could no longer serve after having long discussions with his wife, Huma Abedin, when she returned home on Tuesday after traveling abroad with her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Times reports.
