House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says Weiner is in need of help and should seek some "without the pressures of being a member of Congress."

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz released a statement today saying, "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."

She continued, "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."

Dear Nancy,
If you didn't resign after spending thousands of taxpayer dollars for personal military travel, or diverting $100,000 of PAC money into your husband's real estate and investment firm, then maybe you should just shut the f@*k up and let him be. It's amazing how so many public officials share their opinion, despite the fact that they have their own tremendous skeletons to deal with.

"Pelosi" is Italian for "Arrogant, fatheaded, criminal, spineless, bereft of morals, moneygrubbing, disgusting, whorish, ugly, pigheaded, ********er, hag, contemptible, rude, moron, mangy bitch and all around witch".

She tried to let Weiner keep his weenywagging ways, but its finally gotten to where she has to do something, and I know its killing her, she needs that ugly pervert to help her continue to screw over the country!

His behavior was "indefensible" ...and his continued service is "untenable"??? ...come-on Debbie, you can use stronger language than that. Debbie needs Chris Rock to write her statement and she just signs it.

Funny, flip-flopping again - First Pelosi said he should go, yesterday she said he should stay and now she wants him out again? These people blow whichever way the wind is going at the moment. After she had no problem with Rangle, the country's top Tax dude, and protected him viciously for not paying his taxes and cheating on them to boot, and she had no problem with Jefferson having $90K hidden in his freezer from payoffs, why is she so concerned about Weiner and his weiner?

Here's the real problem with Weiner's Wiener Shots, and I'm surprised the TV news isn't talking about it more:

Even if you care nothing about the damage done to his family, it's obvious that this man was absolutely desperate to keep his dirty little secret. As a member of the U.S. Congress, that leaves him wide open to blackmail from everything from outright terrorists to garden-variety crooks who want to buy his vote.

And if that wasn't enough – his WIFE, who is now PREGNANT, works directly and closely with the U.S. Secretary of State! Depending on how much this (now pregnant) woman wanted to keep her marriage together, she would have been a prime target for blackmail as well.

If nothing else, leaving himself wide open to the blackmail factor should be enough for this clown to lose his job.

Going after the 17 year old chippie was the death sentence for Weiner.
Good to see that even the democrats can draw a line on morality somewhere.
Weiner can now go with Eliot Spitzer and host a TV talk show.

This is hysterical, I didn't think any conduct including lying(Prez Clinton,Charley Rangel, Nancy Pelosi,Harry Reid, Chuckie Schumaker), cheating(Prez Bill again), dating the teenage Congressional male pages(Rep Barney Frank), stealing,cheating on taxes(most of the Obama Administration), promoting abortions, was an indefensible postion for members of the democRAT Party. In fact they have proven it is prefered and acceptble behavior as long as you don't get caught at it.

The biggest poblem with Weiner-gate is that some of his followers are under age. It IS against the law to send them pornographic pics. It's only a matter of time before charges are brought against him.

This was an incredibly stupid thing for him to do.
