← return to Water Cooler

Following news, reported by Fox News, that police in Delaware were investing “direct online communications” between Congressman Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, and a seventeen year old female, Democratic leadership called for Mr. Weiner to resign. CNN reports:

Three weighty Democratic voices - including Nancy Pelosi - on Saturday called for the resignation of embattled U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, who has been under fire after admitting to inappropriate communications with women online.

DNC Chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Democrat, and Rep. Chris Van Hollen, Maryland Democrat, agreed with Ms. Pelosi that Mr. Weiner must resign.

Mr. Weiner is now reportedly seeking treatment under growing pressure to leave Congress. The Washington Times Water Cooler is waiting for a response from his office regarding the latest calls for his resignation from Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill.
