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?"

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?

Nobody liked this cat, he wa*****ful, smartassed and just a wessel in general, I thin he got what he deserved. Don't throgh it out there if you can't take it back. Because, Mr. Weiner, you are never as hard as you think you are.

Different Rules Apply    

@agold -

You are one of the reasons this country is going down the drain. We, as a whole, have no morals and values anything goes - you believe that it's OK for a person in political power to behave in such a lewd fashion?? Privacy of one's home is one thing, but putting yourself out there on the internet for sexual purposes is deviant behavior - it is extreme and this man is disturbed. sorry you don't see it that way - fellow Jew.

I'm actually starting to feel bad for the guy. You know when the joke carries on a keeps carrying on until its not even funny anymore? This is what it has turned into. So a guy named Weiner sent a picture of his **** to a pornstar (among others).. It WAS funny for like a day but now its played out and boring.... NEXT!

As a human being and as a Dem, I was truly saddened to see this happen. It's sad on every front and I simply can't find ANYTHING humorous about the situation. I wish him the best.
