    What crime? There, as far as I can recall, was not even a formal investigation into the matter.

    Don't get carried away. I don't think there is a law against lying to the press or the USA citizens. It actually enhances a Democrat's credentials.

I have never met a woman who said you're not getting lucky till I see a picture of your johnson. Weiner apparently believes that once women get a look at his dick they become helpless.

    Congress seems to be full of absolute idiots on both sides of the isle, but you know what people will continue to support and vote for the zeroids.

    Having said that I don't really care who my officials screw as long as they aren't screwing me. HOWEVER, there is or should be some level of commonsense. Problem is most elected officials and their staff aren't really vetted to be involved in the sensitive areas of conducting the People's business. There are many 17, 18, 19+ year olds in the military who are vetted and trusted with massive levels of responsibility, much of it very secret. IF a military man or woman compromised their mission and in doing so put themselves in a position to be blackmailed they'd be in prison. I've known it to happen. Congress has demonstrated repeatedly that they are immune to such considerations. Weiner is simply the latest example.
    I don't think its quite that. I don't think this was his path to getting laid by women other than his wife. I just think it was a mild perversion. Real poor judgement. Otherwise, Congressmen who don't look like cadavres have ample opportunity for other women.

    I have far more issues with his lying once caught. And only coming clean when the lie did not work.

    I can concur. But from a political standpoint, him staying is the best thing if you want to see Dems hurt by this. He's a real blemish now.

    NY Dems ... Rangel and Weiner

    A felony? Get a grip. By the way, I'm assuming you think Vitter and Sanford should also resign? Just curious.

    Sure they should, although they didn't almost commit a felony and lie to the American people. Do you think Weiner needs to be packing his ****, today?

    This is shameful.

    I feel bad for his family and the people in his district. He has really let them down. There's no excuse for this type of sexual acting out.

    Re: Rep. Anthony Weiner admits he sexted, tweeted crotch pic; says he will not step d

    The announcement came as ABC News prepared to release an interview with Meagan Broussard, a 26-year-old single mother from Texas who provided dozens of photos, emails, Facebook messages and cell phone call logs that she says chronicle a sexually-charged electronic relationship with Weiner that rapidly-evolved for more than a month, starting on April 20, 2011.

    Broussard's story had threatened to expose the secret online life of one of the House Democrats' most popular members, and a man many considered a leading candidate for mayor of New York City.

    Meagan Broussard, 26, provided ABC News with photos, emails, Facebook message and phone call logs she says chronicle a sexually-charged electronic relationship with a man identifying himself as Anthony Weiner.

    "I just chuckled," Broussard, a nursing student, said of her reaction to Weiner's initial response to the Twitter incident. "It would be one thing if he came out and said, 'Hey, so what?' But now he's saying he got hacked?"

    Broussard said she received the same photo of a man's crotch on May 18 in an email from a man who she then believed was Weiner.

    Broussard said her first contact with Weiner occurred on April 20 after she "liked" a YouTube clip of one of Weiner's speeches that had been posted to his Facebook page.

    She also commented -- "hottttt" -- on the link, which is still publicly visible on Weiner's page and has received hundreds of other comments from Facebook users.

    Weiner "almost immediately" added Broussard as a Facebook friend through his personal profile account, she said. And she accepted his request.

    According to Broussard, the two immediately began messaging through Facebook chat, eventually exchanging "hundreds of messages," many of a sexual nature.

    He would say "just good morning, how are you doing, what are you doing today? What are you wearing? What do you like? You know, in the bedroom, you know, that sort of thing," she said.

    During one Facebook chat conversation, Broussard said she voiced uneasiness with the electronic relationship, to which she says Weiner replied, "you are not stalking me....I am stalking you."

    In another conversation, Broussard said she asked Weiner, "Why are you so open? I said, I'm not an open book like that."

    "He replied, 'I'm an open book. Maybe too open,'" she said.

    On May 18, Broussard received an image from the RockOh77 account that shows a man's erect penis.

    ms broussard says she came forward because of "concerns for her image as an aspiring nurse"

    abc says at least some of the congressman's correspondence was sent via his blackberry

    mr broussard says weiner, who wants a waiver, by the way, actually called her on the afternoon of may 18

    from his office

    Well, a report--based on Weiner's claim--was filed with the FBI. Weiner knowingly made a false claim of a crime, an official report was filed with the FBI, so there may have been a crime committed. I'll admit it's a grey area, but hey...
