    They are launching the ethics probe in the House. Pelosi initiated. Since he did some of it from his office, they prolly got him on some of the minor technical stuff. Don't think he can survive, as it'll just keep dragging on as these women tell their stories.

    Not Tiger Woods, but same process.

Of all the things I could be worrying about this is the least of my concerns.
    It's not that. It absolutely isn't. It's the lying that followed. He could have been honest from the get-go. In fact, that's the kind of man I thought he was.

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

    In a bizarre spectacle, Andrew Breitbart temporarily took over the press conference in New York that was supposed to feature Rep. Anthony Weiner Monday, declaring that everything he’s posted on his conservative Web site BigGovernment.com has proven to be true.

    Weiner was supposed to come to the microphones at 4 p.m. but Breitbart commandeered the podium instead, criticizing the media’s coverage of the Weiner scandal and saying he had been “vindicated” even before the congressman spoke.

    He had heard about the press conference when his cell phone started buzzing, and strolled over from his hotel nearby. His phone rang, and he took the call. “Hey, I’m here right now, this is crazy,” he said to the caller.

    Breitbart went unnoticed by the huge media throng until a POLITICO and New York Observer reporter approached him, and tweeted about it. Word spread that he was on the premises, and the cameramen quickly rushed over, surrounding him by a side door.

    Andrew, would you go to the podium?” WCBS reporter Marcia Kramer, who just days earlier was threatened with arrest when she staked out Weiner’s congressional office in Washington, asked.

    After a few requests, he agreed. Breitbart questioned whether Weiner was paying to rent the ballroom, and said it was perhaps not wrong to take the podium in that case. But he went up anyway.

    “I am completely here by happenstance,” Breitbart said, before turning quickly to the matter at hand.

    Weiner faced several questions about whether he had any apologies to make to the blogger.

    The congressman resisted the first few times.

    “I’m right here,” Breitbart called out from the sidelines. Soon after, Weiner said “I apologize to Andrew Breitbart.”

    Considering Rep Weiner's rant on doing the right thing, it's right ironic he couldn't do the right thing himself till he was backed into a corner dead to rights. Then and only then did he tell the truth.

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

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Steve Israel, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, have called for an investigation into Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) over the series of sexually explicit conversations and lewd photos he exchanged with a half-dozen women during the last several years.

    “I am deeply disappointed and saddened about this situation; for Anthony’s wife, Huma, his family, his staff and his constituents,” Pelosi said in a statement released on Monday night. “I am calling for an Ethics Committee investigation to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred.”

    Israel added: “Congressman Anthony Weiner engaged in a deep personal failure and inappropriate behavior that embarrassed himself, his family, and the House. Ultimately, Anthony and his constituents will make a judgment about his future.”

    “To remove all remaining doubt about this situation, I agree with Leader Pelosi’s request that the House Ethics Committee use its authority to begin an investigation.”

    The calls by Pelosi and Israel for an ethics investigation dramatically raise the political stakes for Weiner. While Weiner stated repeatedly during an emotional press conference on Monday that he had broken no laws nor violated House ethics rules during his interaction with the women, a probe by the House Ethics Committee could find differently. Under its rules, the Ethics Committee can initiate an investigation under its own authority, without a formal complaint being filed.

    And it also could provide Pelosi and other Democratic leaders with enough political cover to call on Weiner to step down. So far, none of his Democratic colleagues have called on him to give up the seat that he first won in 1998.

    anthony is not popular in new york, he's a late comer to liberalism, a pro israel hawk, a media hound who's also perceived as arrogant

    this is a man, after all, who has spent an entire new york career casting himself as so much cleverer than everyone else

    Personally, I thought the guy had a ton of potential but unfortunately for the Dems, he did an asinine thing. I can't believe that he didn't think this wouldn't eventually bite him in the ass eventually. Though he didn't commit a crime, he should step down, IMO.

    Of course he's not. He's a typical Democrat. As long as he says he's sorry, all is forgiven. The problem with that is he lied through his teeth about being hacked. His moral compass finds it A-OK to lie in order to save his own skin. What else is he willing to lie about?
