Politico, Hot Air, and a local Charlottesville CBS news outlet are reporting that Tim Kaine, former DNC Chair is calling on disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, to resign. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air writes:
Kaine becomes the most prominent Democrat to publicly demand Weiner’s resignation. Don’t look for his successor at the DNC to follow suit; Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is more likely to claim that Republicans are LITERALLY TRYING TO DRAG WEINER BACK TO THE DAYS WHEN THE INTERNET DIDN’T EXIST, or something equally absurd, before she’ll demand Weiner find a new career. But Kaine’s prominence might give other Democrats a green light to get more public with their efforts to get rid of the embarrassment Weiner brings on them.
Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus has already called upon his counterpart at the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasser Schultz and Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to tell Mr. Weiner to step down.
