Representative Anthony D. Weiner, an influential Democrat who had been considered a leading candidate to be the next mayor of New York City, said Thursday that he was resigning from Congress following revelations of lewd online exchanges with several women.

...

Pressure on Mr. Weiner to leave the House has been building for days, with top House Democrats, including Ms. Pelosi, the minority leader, coming forward over the weekend to urge him publicly to spare himself, his family and his party any more embarrassment.

But that pressure intensified earlier this week when President Obama publicly suggested that Mr. Weiner should step down and Ms. Pelosi told reporters that she was prepared to strip Mr. Weiner of his committee assignments if he did not leave.


One of the best, if not the best people in Congress, turned on by his supposed colleagues and forced to resign over a "scandal" that broke no actual laws. Absurd, ridiculous. We've lost a very good public servant today.

anyone in his position would've lied about it. including you.

anyways, people really need to stop judging politicians by their own personal demons and by how well they do the job they were elected to do. nancy pelosi and all the other dems who ganged up with her showed us how conservative they really are. ****in sucks.

1) That's YOUR opinion. 2) I don't ever want a public servant who's immoral enough to do the nasty affair. Any politician who cheats on his wife is not ok with me. Besides, this is such a thing as a congressional code of conduct. I'm fairly sure creating a scandal is going to get you into hot water. 3) I disagree with you; he was an average Democratic public servant. Nothing too great to him.

"Weiner's" is a contraction of "Weiner has." The 's is a contraction; it doesn't only show possession.

1) Yeah, I'm aware 2) Well, I suppose that's your opinion. Personally, unless they're committing a crime, I don't really care what politicians do in their personal lives. I vote for candidates so they can advocate for my preferred policy preferences on the issues.

What he did was scummy, but it's not like sexting is illegal. If his constituents don't want him to represent them they would have voted him out in the next election.

I love how they put his texts on nation-wide news.

"You aren't giving my package due credit"

"I have wardrobe demands too. I need to highlight my package."

"Alright, my package and I are not going to beg. We both see the hazard of going down the path of comparative sexiness."

I might want a politician to step down for this if I also thought he was a bad politician (lazy, corrupt, apathetic, someone whose views I completely disagreed with etc.) but I would not want them to step down, purely because of these actions.

if that makes me a hypocrite, so be it.

The thing that annoys me the most about this, is that the media claims that this is some sort of victory for womens rights against misogyny. Yet those same media outlets have done nothing but harass the women involved for the sake of a story.

Also, **** Andrew Breitbart. That asshat had been stalking and abusing Weiner for months, only to have both the media and the majority of congress join his personal vendetta. Ugh.

I suppose if you didn't care for the ideology of democracy at all, and only believed in using current political institutions for the purpose of pushing your own ideology then you would not be acting hypocritically, but if you did care for democracy, then you would be a hypocrite.
