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."

How come if I got caught being a pervert I can't take a leave of absense from work? Taking time off to learn how to be a better husband and father? Who are the instructors Charlie Sheen, Kelsey Grammer and Mel Gibson?

Weiner takes a leave of absence.

Translation: Weiner has to go across the country and track down all the women who haven't come forward yet, get them to delete their text messages.

Everyone is assuming that he actually intends to go into rehab. What he's going to do, is go back under the rock he crawled out from under, until things cool off, and someone else gets caught in the ho*****er. Soon as that happens, a miracle 'cure' will occur and he will be back in his seat, decrying others for their sins, and claiming he 'has seen the light'... but he will still be in Congress.
He is an egotistical self-serving politician who has a good spin team... and THIS is a man who runs controls what the USA does. We should all be just a little afraid!

Just think... If a decade ago, someone had traveled back in time from the future and told everyone that in ten years a story about a rehab bound Twittering Weiner would be really big in the news, who could have had the slightest notion what that could possibly mean?
