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?"

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?

ThinkingWoman 9 minutes ago: If we expect a lifetime of perfection from government officials, we will only elect increasingly more effective liars.

mark 7 minutes ago: to have everyone call him a pervert...then 90% of this country are pervs

my thoughts exactly. We are a country full of pervs if we get so caught up and focused on his sexting, his "package" - how long it is, etc. etc. What is wrong with us that this takes precedence over riots in Greece, the Arab Spring, stock market falling....because talking about some congressman who happens to have the surname of "Weiner" took a picture of his weiner and sent it to somebody. such a sad state of affairs.

People are missing the point if they think that it was the sexting that caused him to resign. That was between him and his wife. What really f*cked him up was the fact he LIED about it. Lying is what always gets the politicians in trouble. It makes them lose credibility. It's what bit both Nixon and Clinton in the azz.

I was not surprised he resigned. He was stupid to do something like that in the first place. I wonder which high profile person is next to do something stupid with their phone and/or text messages and get caught. It's only a matter of time. lol

The person heckling him was from the Howard Stern show so asking the congressman about being 7 inches was a normal question coming from the Howard Stern camp. They thrive on adding more misery and embarrassment to high profile people in trouble.

First, this dude is sooo butt UGLY, Im sure his "package" is as ugly as his lying face. I feel sorry for his wife, as she is now pregnant with this Loser's child. I'd divorce this fool and get on with my life as a single mom. She has a good job and is an attractive woman who could get herself another more decent man and let this ugly pig continue going on the internet and flashing his wee-wee at trashy women...just sayin!

He has no one to blame but himself, but I will say this...now that he has basically been forced to step down my his colleagues, each and every single one of our elected officials should be prepared to do the same when their infidelities are exposed.

I am NOT saying he does not deserve this, but for too many years political indiscretions have been pushed under the rug and ignored...a precedent has now been set for consequences for such behavior. So to our elected officials I say...you have now set the bar for punishment if you behave as he did, so if you do it...be prepared to step down as well. We want someone we can trust representing us and yes, you ARE held to a higher standard than someone who did not choose to be in the spotlight or represent the American people.

I can just imagine how many of our elected officials are scrambling to hide the skeletons in their closets even further!

Employers that need talented workers only hire perverts, they have three eyes instead of two and make great leaders. Herod, Caligula, Weiner, and a thousand other famous perverts have proven this to be true.

Nothing but hypocrites in WDC. I*****overnment leader sets the standard of conduct, then why have Weiner resign and set Prez Clinton free and give him a pension? Seriously, who committed the worse offense to the public that elected them?
