6/16/2011 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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?"

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?

It seems to be the norm nowadays that Congressman risk their political careers for electronic gadgets and low-grade women. In this case, where it seems Weiner seemed to be very popular and well received in his district, it's almost a shame he chose to cave under public pressure and not weather the storm (especially off the heels of advice from two of the worst elected officials in American politics today: Obama and Pelosi). If all three were running against each other, Weiner would undoubtly come out the lesser of three evils. On the other, elected officials serving their constituents, should understand they are held to a higher standard of accountabilty and not to engage in such question behavior or abuse their power or access to governement perks. A 20 year career down the drain for what? I am sure Mr. Weiner will regret his actions for the rest of his life. Hopefully, he can better serve his community through his education and experience, while using his brain(only) next time. I thought the heckler was incredibly immature today. Hope he got off on his 15 seconds of fame, ironically something he was there to condemn Weiner for.

Shame on him for taking pics and sending to Porn Stars, did it affect her doing her job?? oh wait, it may have gotten her more "into character". He should have just gotten a BJ in the White House like Clinton or just had affairs like the Kennedy's. Then he could have kept his job and still be Loved!!! How long did Ted Kennedy stay in office? How many affairs? But none of that affected his ability to do his job. The shame he has brought into our Government, and that affects his ability to do his job...REALLY PEOPLE???

I knew he was a lying the moment he couldn't recognize his own package in the picture! Come one now. He probably wouldn't be resigning if he was honest at the beginning and then went on his merry way. Instead he just kept digging himself deeper. I'm so tired of listening to this on the news. Now he will have all the time in the world to sext. His poor pregnant wife is who I feel sorry for!

How can we judge a politician for being a d*ck, when all Anthony Weiner did was prove that he had one?
What is this poor country coming to...shame.

what he did was irresponsible and he should have known that it would undermine all the good work he has done. The hecklers think they're being funny, think they're being clever and entertaining? To me, they are trash and just as big of an embarrassment as the former Congressman. We elect people knowing full well they are not gods, they are men and women. When us "normal" folks get "caught" thank god there is not a media clusterf**ck for weeks on end making our lives a living hell and forcing us to quit our jobs. Being a sexual being doesn't make you bad at your job, but yes, cheating and utilizing work-related time/equipment in order to do that - yes, a distraction. Which is what he resigned for - being a distraction. WHO made him a distraction? The media.

Howard Stern must be proud that some moron from his show actually yelled out "Are you more than 7 inches?" Maybe Stern finds that amusing.

That's just as disgusting as what the Weiner did. Actually, even more disgusting and unacceptable in some ways.

He is an arrogant piece of s..t who is not ashamed of the disgusting things he was doing behind his wife's back. I wonder what else they have on him??? Well, all I can say is go play with yourself, hope your hand doesn't wear out!!!

Do we as a country really care more about the peccadillos of our politicians than the major problems facing our nation?

The heckling from the audience is equally inappropriate to the actions of Weiner.

If we expect a lifetime of perfection from government officials, we will only elect increasingly more effective liars.

This is a sad day on many levels.

I'm so disgusted. Not by Weiner's actions, that I am disappointed about and saddened, but what disgusts me is the heckling. Are you more that 7 inches? What the eff is that?! There is no such thing as journaistic integrity anymore....and to have everyone call him a pervert...then 90% of this country are pervs...he just got caught. i am not defending him at all....but this is ridiculous that he would be heckled....he did not harm anyone, did not threaten anyone with violence, he did a stupid thing and lied and should step down...but the folks at the press conference should be ashamed.
