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.

The Blaze, Beck’s new site is launching today. His website editor is Scott Baker, formerly of Breitbart.tv and “The B-Cast.”
We talked to [Scott] Baker today about what readers can expect from the new site, the team behind it and more. “It’ll be news and information,” he told Mediaite. “Some commentary and opinion stories we’re interested in that are being under-covered or not covered.”
People will inevitably make the comparison to Arianna Huffington – whether Beck’s role as figurehead behind the site will make The Blaze into a conservative Huffington Post. “The one thing pretty clear around Mercury [Beck’s company] is that Glenn is not short on ideas or hesitant on input,” Baker said. “His input is already evident in how the site looks, and that’s what will continue. It will be a continual flow of tips and suggestions and encouragement.”
Beck’s message on his new site:
But there comes a time when you have to stop complaining and do something. And so we decided to hire some actual journalists to launch a new website — The Blaze. And we moved fast. We built the team and the site in just two months.
We want this to be a place where you can find breaking news, original reporting, insightful opinions and engaging videos about the stories that matter most.
The Blaze will be about current news — and more. It’s not just politics and policy. It’s looking for insight wherever we find it. We’ll examine our culture, deal with matters of faith and family, and we won’t be afraid of a history lesson.
