Pressure Mounts … Anthony Weiner Reported to be Resigning in Wake of Weinergate

 

It would appear that Anthony Weiner’s rope is at an end … according to sources close to Weiner, he will resign.

As reported at the Politico, Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is going to step down from Congress and resign. This scandal and story has gone on far too long. Any individual with any common sense or shame would have resigned two days after the scandal surfaced. Big Government is saying that the resignation will come today.  There will be a presser at his office at 2 today.

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) will resign from his seat in Congress, heeding calls from President Barack Obama, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and dozens of other congressional Democrats, sources confirm to POLITICO.

The resignation ends nearly three weeks of tumultuous political controversy since the New York congressman sent a lewd picture of himself over Twitter on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. After spending over a week claiming that the photo was sent by someone who hacked his account, Weiner admitted last Monday that he had sent it himself, and that he had carried on online sexual relationships with at least six women in the last three years.

It was just last week that news stories were released that Weiner was considering resigning from office as more and more sordid details were released. However, as we stated from the outset of this scandal, it was only a matter of time. Weiner was just biding his time and extending this scandal for no other reason than to try and save his political career. That was never going to happen. He was toast then and he is toast now.

More from NewsBusters … how will the MSM react to Weiner going bye, bye?

UPDATE I: WEINER OUT!!!
