Congressman Weiner Taking Leave of Absence

6/11/2011 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Congressman Anthony Weiner just announced he's taking a leave of absence from Congress and has departed this morning "to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person."

Weiner's rep released a statement saying, "[Congressman Weiner] will request a short leave of absence from the House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well."

The statement went on to say, "Congressman Weiner takes the views of his colleagues very seriously and has determined that he needs this time to get healthy and make the best decision possible for himself, his family and his constituents."

GOOD! he needs help. most men are pigs! more and more cases are coming out and proving it. It's good he's trying to fix it. its probably because he knows he looks like a damn fool.

Weiner is seeking treatment as a last ditch effort only to appease those who are calling for his resignation. Anyone as self-centered and egotistical as this pervert wouldn't admit he needs to see a shrink or seek any other professional treatment unless he felt it was what he needed to do in order to save his own (fore)skin. Let's not be scammed by this huckster, his intentions and this announcement are so transparent.

Sociopaths are Sad    

And the damage control has begun.

He's taking a page right out of the celeb handbook with this rehab bit. It's all about rehabbing his image. He doesn't think he has a problem.

Until he gets caught again....and he will.

Weiner's ego is as big as Tiger Woods. And look what has happened to Tiger's career since he too got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Tiger's career and endorsements went right down the toilet. Weiner should immediately fully resign to help his party, lest this story lingers on -- which he exactly what he is doing.

Didn't know you had a PhD in Psych MoonDust, I thought your only degree was a BS in Assclownery, making you a certified professional moron.

This is the best thing that Anthony Weiner can do. Well, you people won't have anyone to obsessively project your hang-ups about sex onto. Show's over.

He needs to be on the next Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew. He could be the whole show by himself. Weiner is the poster boy for a sex addict - desperate lying, escalating behaviour, and risking everything for his drug (sex and sexual attention).

So the arrogant Ole Weiner is limping his way out of town. Bet you he can hardly wait to re-hab his former stiffey

Why dont he just leave the house of representative? Never knew there were treatments for sex addicts! These congress people are poor excuses for human beings. We all have to go out and work for our money and they sit around sending nasty pictures when they should be doing there job they are paid to do!
