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?

To Fred Farkel: With women, the attraction is not about Looks. It's about the Power. Weiner's WIFE works for a woman who knows all about power - Hillary Clinton - and she knows POWER gets them where they want to go. (What has Hillary Clinton EVER done before she became Sec of State? She was married to the former president. That's all. She used the power HE had to try to become president herself. When that didn't work, the "winner" offered her a secondary job as Sec of State. THAT'S how she got that job and it wasn't on her own.) The looks don't matter all that much. It's the Power that attracts.

As disgusting as Weiner is, it boggles the mind as to why Slick Willy Clinton was allowed to remain as President after lying and doing things even MORE disgusting and why he is STILL being lauded as a great man. So many stupid people.

Who should resign next? Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Leadership. Anthony Weiner has announced he is resigning today, meanwhile the Democrats wonder why they can't get us young progressives fired up. If 1/2 of them including Nancy Pelosi had the guts to stick up for accountability and against corporate lobbyists and disinfo as much as this man did we'd own this country. Who's going to fill his shoes and demand impeachment of Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice? Who's going to stand up to Citizen's Untied? The leadership of the party is a farce.

I don't get it! Apparently, I do not see what these women see because he is not that good looking to me and I have seen a better body. Help me try to understand the attraction here! Before knowing what was going on with him just seeing him made my skin crawl. Anyway... moving on to the next topic please!

Apparently you missed the memo.

In the year 2011 - virtually ALL women are f*cking NUTS.

Nothing they do... nothing they say... makes a lick of sense.

Fred: Women are "f*cking NUTS"? This coming from a man that has Jesus as his profile pic!? Work with me here, Freddy! Saying what you just said and having Our Lord as your profile picture..? I'm sorry, but isn't that "F*cking NUTS"?? I think so! ;) And just so you know.. Not all women are so-called NUTS. Don't judge us by these women that fell for Weiner's bulls**t. But if you are going to judge, then what does Weiner's action say about men?! Think about that, Fred! OR better yet... Ask Jesus!

It sounded more like a concession speech given by the losers during election time. You can tell dude has some serious issues, his marriage wont last.

Limit politicians to two terms, one term in office the second term in prison. It's where they all belong because they all are dirty!

I wonder if Anthony wishes he'd met these women for s_*e_*x instead of only sending them pictures and texts b/c he'd darn sure still have his job if it was just meaningless s_*e_*x.

Yes, I don't like what he did. He's pretty stupid for doing the things he did. No question about that......

But having to endure heckling and applause on announcing his resignation - big huge OUCH!!!

Yes, he deserved it.

But geez, that had to be majorly humiliating....

Reap what you sow, karma and all that....

I feel so sorry for his wife. Now, if she decides to stay with him, NO SYMPATHY! She stays, she's an idiot!

What he did has hurt so many innocent people - his parents and family, his wife, his church....

If I were him, I'd be hiding under a rock.....

As for the 7 inches question - LOL!!!!

Will never understand why ANYONE in his position wouldn't KNOW this kind of thing would come back to bite him......
