Weiner Admits To Sending Racy Messages, But Will Not Resign - NY1.com
last straw, anyone?
The quicker Weiner acts on this, the quicker he can begin to get some help, hopefully rehabilitate himself, and attempt a return to Congress where he is a valuable representative.
He should resign. He should take strong steps in his personal life to get some help for the cause of this behavior and how he has hurt his wife. And if he feels he can put this disgraceful incident behind him, he should run again in the future. He did not kill anybody so the career death penalty seems out of order. But a resignation seems appropriate.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.

GOP Rep. Chris Lee resigns over shirtless photo on Web - USATODAY.comRep. Chris Lee, R-N.Y., abruptly resigned Wednesday after the gossip website Gawker disclosed that the married congressman had e-mailed a shirtless picture of himself to a woman he met through Craigslist.
"I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents," the two-term congressman said in a statement posted on his site Wednesday evening. He said he made "profound mistakes."
"The challenges we face in Western New York and across the country are too serious for me to allow this distraction to continue, and so I am announcing that I have resigned my seat in Congress effective immediately."
On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner said Lee "made the right decision for himself and for his family" by resigning. Boehner, however, refused to tell reporters whether he encouraged Lee to step aside.
"Congressman Lee made his own decision that he thought was in his own best interest and the interest of his family," said Boehner, an Ohio Republican.
If Weiner intended to send this to some woman he was having a fling with then the only thing that really bothers from a political standpoint is that he lied about it. However, if lying about briefly posting a picture of his Congressional aide is the worse thing he has done then I think people should forgive Weiner for tweeting his weiner. Of all the things I could be worrying about this is the least of my concerns.
