It’s the end for Rep. Anthony Weiner


Five days. That is the answer to the question I asked Monday.

In the end, as expected, Weinergate proved too much for the New York Democrat to escape intact. From The Washington Post:

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has decided to resign, following the revelations that he exchanged sexually explicit messages and photographs of himself with women he met online, a Democratic source confirmed Thursday morning.

Weiner informed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, of his decision Wednesday night, a senior Democratic aide said.

His office said he would address reporters at 2 p.m., at a senior citizens center in Brooklyn.

Odd choice of venue for a public address. Maybe Weiner figured this would be a less raucous crowd to end his political career in front of.
