Embattled Representative Anthony Weiner will resign his office according to Democratic sources. Just about every muckey-muck in the party has called for him to resign now - including President Obama.
First elected to the House in 1998 after his political mentor, then-Rep. Chuck Schumer, decided to run for the Senate, Weiner has been a reliable liberal voice for the solidly Democratic 9th District, encompassing parts of Brooklyn and Queens.
As a politician, Weiner fully embraced social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, using the platforms to unleash his comedic take on life and politics.
It still irritates me that Democrats have called for Weiner's head while they rallied around President Clinton. Clinton actually had sex with someone and lied about it; Weiner did what most of us have done. He sent a sexy picture of himself over the internet and flirted with people he'd only met online.
The Dems kept saying that his scandal was a "distraction" at a time when they were trying to push other issues. Here's a hint to the Democrats then: "Stop talking about it and making news each time another high level party official calls for his resignation!"
It's too late now. Once again, the liberal gets the push overboard while the party watches. You can bet if this was a Blue Dog democrat, they'd have been rallying around him like nobody's business.
