As He Resigns From Congress

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?

"leave this man alone."

That's hilarious, considering he is the one who sought out the media during his first Magical Mystery Tour of Lies, appearing on the front steps & and lying some more on those talk shows. He even needed the spotlight to resign.

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!

Yes, we want our leaders to be like us... except for our flaws.

Yes, lots of people make the same mistakes as Anthony Weiner, but we are not elected to represent constituents. Elected officials must be judged by a higher moral standard.

Anthony Weiner represents an entire congressional district. His actions should reflect their culture, their goals, and their needs. Weiner's actions defeated that goal. He failed, and he correctly stepped down.

Sandy about a minute ago: Did you all forget that this guy had multiple conversations with a underage girl? He is a pervert and deserved to be heckled!!!!


Since when is a having a conversation with an underaged girl considered illegal or perverted? She came out and said there was nothing inappropriate about the messages to this girl. I'm not defending what the guy did with the other messages and pictures to o****e women, but think that this fuss over it is ridiculous. Bill Clinton did much worse and he remained president, and in my opinion - a pretty decent one.

He's gone but we the taxpayers have to continue to pay his salary for the rest of his life! That doesn't quite seem fair.

A clip on tv showed Weiner tripping as he was trying to get into his car...so yes, I'd say it's longer than 7 inches!

That's what he gets for not resigning immediately because he's such an attention hound who wants the world to be as fascinated with his weiner as he is.

Why are people stating or implying that taking a picture of your junk, covered or not and sending to women who are not your wife normal? I am sure it happens and often but normal? I think not.
