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?

Smart man he didn't give them a chance to beat him down again! He said what he had to say and got the heck out of there! I just do not understand the hypocrisy of keeping President Clinton yet shooting this man down to the point he resigns.

Good riddance! What took him so long?? I bet you he will think twice before contacting the media again to claim he has been a victim of a "hacking". It wasn't the photo people. He was the one who contacted the media, pretending to be a victim of a crime, and then lying to the press for over a week. For all politicians, from BOTH sides of the isle, the cover-up is always worse than the initial allegation. Always.

Oh my god. Unbelievable. What a viper pit of Press. There was enough attention on this to warrant the announcement that aliens have landed and are taking over the planet. Are people serious? He sent, privately, a picture of his underwear. I say again. A man took a web cam pic of his underwear. One more time. A man....took a private picture...of his underwear.

The reason it's a ******* circus is because outlets like this one need to create a villain out of thin air to draw the dollars in. It's so pathetic. Harvey, you should be ashamed. A fellow Jew, no less. You're terrible.

@Muppet. Democrats actually liked Bill Clinton and stood by him during his darkest hours. It's my understanding, nobody in congress really likes Weiner. He's never introduced or written important legislation. He just shows up for voting, grandstands, yells at the GOP, does a media blitz, then goes about his day. He wasn't well liked on capitol hill at all.
