Anthony Weiner Resigns Over His Sexual Scandal

The embattled congressman stepped down today after admitting he sent lewd photos of himself to women he befriended on Facebook and Twitter.

Rep. Anthony Weiner resigned from office Thursday, saying, "Unfortunately, the distraction that I have created" has made it "impossible" to continue his work in Congress.

Weiner apologized "for the personal mistakes I have made and for the embarrassment I have caused" to his neighbors, his constituents, and his wife.

Wild Thing's comment.........

As soon as he said, “I resign” - someone yelled, “Yea !!! Bye-bye pervert !!!”

Besides all the sex scandal stuff, Weiner is not a nice man. He was known for his temper tantrums.

He went after Beck on his selling of Gold, made quite a stink. So the moral is don't mess with Beck.

His work in Congress, what have you done Weenie, What a piece of work. It took long enough to get these people to finally blame Weiner, himself, they kept saying this was a Right wing trick...uh huh, Good by stinky and don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

Lamentable, only take away from all this is the sad revelation, and for some confirmation that:

There's a very large percentage of Democrats that find nothing wrong with this congressman's behavior including lying to the FBI, and within New York a sizable constituency that would still vote to reelect him. What high standards they have in New York and within the Democrat Party for public office.

Sadly we've now bred a sick group of Americans that remarkably find nothing wrong with the perverse behavior of this congressman, and worst of all hold no norms for expected human behavior, everything goes. What sick depravity. Decadence.

End of story here. 'nough said. No more.

...with Weiner out, perhaps America will have time to address "Operation Fast and Furious", a real issue demanding real answers. People died because someone wanted to make a point in order to negate the second ammendment. A.G. Holder has some 'splainin' to do.

Thanks everyone.

I agree too, next I hope they keep strong and demand answers from Holder on "Operation Fast and Furious".

Like we used to see and hear on B&W tv's in the 60s Wild Thing:
"Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner...."
