Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:
“It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign. The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable. This sordid affair has become an unacceptable distraction for Representative Weiner, his family, his constituents and the House – and for the good of all, he should step aside and address those things that should be most important – his and his family’s well-being.”
Well, I’d say his days are numbered. And personally, I hate to see him out of office. I think he’d be a real gift to the Republicans for the next 18 months. Pelosi will be the next one to issue a statement and by Sunday night, he’ll have resigned – or at least I’m betting so.
And more at Mediaite.com from Andrew Breitbart on Fox and Friends today. I just don’t see how he can make it through the weekend … or through his marriage, for that matter.
Seriously, even democrats have to agree that trolling the internet for underage girls is unacceptable and illegal.
This story is moving faster than my fingers can keep up. Pelosi has issued her statement within minutes of that fugly DNC chairwoman. Others have also.
Update from HotAir H/t Voting Female Speaks:
That fanatic attachment to power, even at the price of seeing his dignity shredded in the media day after day, is one of the creepiest parts of this story.

One of the things I learned by working in the hood for 30 years was that all the miscreants without exception rushed to get into a rehab right before their trials in order to try & hoodwink a judge into believing a) they were remorseful and b) they were serious about getting their miserable lives in order. Somehow, a + b never seemed to add up to anything more than the usual con on the “Man”. Enter the Weiner and his sudden rush to treatment for his “addiction.” The guy may wear expensive suits & live high on the hog on the taxpayer’s dime, but he ain’t no better in the end than your run of the mill North Philly street thug.

It’s all so disingenuous, isn’t it? Now he’s going to rehab? for what? How do you treat a narcissist or cure arrogance? It can’t be done. Those are personality characteristics, not disorders.

I just read somewhere that he now wants to seek professional help and is asking for a leave of absense from his congressional duties. How nice!
June 11th, 2011 at 4:30 PM
Yea how nice, indeed. Right in time for the congressional recess and hoping that when they come back, everyone will have forgotten this whole mess!
As I’ve said, he’s a gift to the republicans so I’m kinda hoping he won’t go away but he’s also pretty arrogant and despicable.

Have they uncovered any tweets to Barney Frank yet?

That’s the next man who needs an ethics investigation and so no one misunderstands me – it has nothing to do with his gayness and every thing to do with his corruption.

I agree – he should stay and he could be the poster child for all that’s wrong with the left. He isn’t totally useless- he can always serve as a bad example.

And what’s even better Otis,… the Dem leadership is starting to wring their hands over what he’s doing to their re-election prospects.
Add this to OB’s tailspin on the economy, we got a landslide coming against the Libs.
We need to be sure of who runs against them.
No more John McCains please.
