House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and DCCC chair Steve Israel have told Rep. Anthony Weiner he should resign.
Pelosi released the following statement Saturday:
“Congressman Weiner has the love of his family, the confidence of his constituents, and the recognition that he needs help. I urge Congressman Weiner to seek that help without the pressures of being a member of Congress.”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."Israel issued this statement:
“Anthony’s inappropriate behavior has become an insurmountable distraction to the House and our work for the American people. With a heavy heart, I call on Anthony to resign.”
It is Day 15 of the Weinergate controversy and three key Democrat leaders only now agree to call on irrepressible and sex-crazed ultra-liberal Anthony Weiner to resign. Why hasn’t the man resigned yet? I heard one caller on a talk radio show recently say that if someone did in public did what Weiner did online that they would be arrested for indecent exposure. What is the difference? His behavior is significantly worse because of his position of trust, public service and standards of basic decency expected from a member of congress.

Anthony Weiner: Unfit to Serve
Liar. Cheater. Disgrace. He must resign NOW!
Congress should represent the best in America, not the worst. Our representatives should be people we look up to, not despise. They should teach our children the right lessons, not the wrong ones.
Congress is too important. The issues our country is facing are too important. Honesty and integrity are too important. Anthony Weiner must resign NOW!
