Anthony Weiner just resigned his seat in Congress, as people in the room heckled him.

Weiner apologized to his constituents and to his wife.  He said he was announcing his resignation because of the distraction he caused.

When Weiner said he was resigning, applause erupted in the room, and hecklers began chiming in, making it difficult for Weiner to continue.  One of the people in the room -- Benjy Bronk from the Howard Stern Show, screamed, "Are you more than 7 inches?"  Another screamed, "Yeah, get out of here pervert."

As he walked out, one heckler asked, "Will you maintain your hot physique?"

Sad case. Sad man. Looks like its going to be difficult for him--can't blame anyone but himself.

good lord, why are people making it such an issue at least we all know he's normal. Most of the people that are yelling out are probably perverts themselves. "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw the first stone"

It's a shame that an ignorant person, or persons were shouting vulgar and inappropriate language during the press conference. This type of behavior is not funny and not warranted. This person(s) behavior demonstrates the stupidity in our society.

Nice to see the House taking out the perverted garbage.

I remembered his speech on benefits for 9/11 first responders. Among other things, to ruin all his hard work with something so...stupid is a major disappointment.

Why don't female politicians ever have sexual scandals?

Interesting: A congressman has to resign because he took pictures of himself in his underwear & sends it to another girl who is not his wife. All of his fellow Dems are in an uproar about his indecency and the fact that some pictures were taken on Govt real estate...... and then lied about it.

Did we not have a President who got a BJ from an intern of his, in the White House no less, while married.
His fellow Dems did not feel his conduct so outrageous as to force him to resign. As he says, I did not have sexual relations with that woman.

Who is the bigger liar, whose conduct is more dispicable? I guess it would depend on the amounts of money you can raise & how good looking you may be.

Just consider the source for the heckler - Howard Stern show. Idiots for the top idiot of all. Sure Weiner screwed up. Hey, in case you haven't looked to much lately, we all screw up. Just so happens he was in public office. At least he wasn't haven't an affair or a homosexual liason. So for the most part, he's normal. That 's more than I can say for the shock jock himself or his employees. All they did was make an a** of themselves. Now that Weiner is out of office, let's get on with more sleaze like John Edwards trial or Gingrich's controlling wife or Palin's ignorance of American history. We got so many more worthy people to attack and that's what America seems to be known for lately - attacks - both personally and nationally. Isn't there a country out there we can attack this week since we have so much money to spend on military endeavors?

He needs to leave, he exercised poor judgment and no common sense. We do not need this type of person in offfice making decisions for us.

Why did he apologize to everyone except for hackers. Not all of them are bad people and he made them look even worse just like every press outfit. No-one takes the time to talk to them and get their opinion.

I liked Weiner because he was there for the little guy, but what he did was REALLY bad. I've met a few like him in my days....sex addicts. Considering his position, U.S. congressman, he had to go. All I can say is what a fool.

And the guy screaming the insults during his resignation statement, that's just an idiot.

I'm still surprised when I see the posts that need to compare what he did with any other politican. Sure, there are some that seemed worse but that does not diminish what a liar and pig this guy is. While we are out of work, can't afford gas for the car or groceries on the same week, we look to these guys for leadership. Instead, we get someone who plays with himself and sends lewd photos around the internet. How about doing the job he was voted in to do and keeping it in his pants. If he can't do that...then step down and go take your photos, now you can have all the free time you need.

Yeah - everyone knows vulgar and inappropriate language is reserved for tweets from our elected officials, hopefully accompanied by a pitcture of their crotch!

Only blame himself. What an embarrassment. Too bad he didn't spend his time working for the greater good of society. I doubt he learned any lesson though.
