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."

Holy Hag Hill.... Nancy Pelosi is the one that needs to resign. Having a butt ugly transvestite zombie in our government makes the entire U.S. look bad.

The reason he should step down is simple. He lied for 10 days to the people. He should have just said he accidentally sent out that photo to everyone. It happens, he'd have gotten a little grief and that would have been it. But he didn't do that. He went and made-up this "I got hacked" story and stuck with it. I was really stupid. And should step down with what dignity he still has. If he fights this he’ll take down more democrats.

Here we go again another shocking scandal,how boring. Why do we keep on acting like this is something news worthy. Leave the man alone he didn't do anything wrong that the rest of the country is doing also. The man is human. this old crow debbie wasserman shultz should try and remember the early years when she wasn't so dried up and dusty and as far as Mr. Weiner resigning,give me a break. The man has paid his dues to get to where he is at and because of one small goof he should resign Bull Crap! No one is perfect and I'm sure Ms Wasserm Shultz has a few skeleton's in her closet but no one cares.

Who the hell is Nancy to determine whether Weiner should resign. Mind your own business Nancy..As if you really care about him and his family. This man did not RAPE anyone's daughter I say give the guy some time off, let the dust settle a bit then return back to work. By that time nobody will even care about what happend. Tell me how does Weiner's behavior affect his work as a Congressman? Listen everybody goofs off a little bit at work. He didn't steal from the taxpayers. If anybody should be embarrassed is Bill Clinton and Arnold. Now that took some balls.
