    Wasserman-Schultz just called for his resignation. If a Democrat loses Debbie, they have lost everyone.

    Re: Pelosi declines to call for Weiner's resignation

    I dont think she called for Rangel or Jefferson to step down either. Typically, they are focusing on the irrlevant part of this whole situation. That Weiner posted his weiner his irrelevant to me...it is an issue for he and his to deal with. But in all the discussions on the news programs and interviews what has been completely glossed over is that he lied about it and made false accusations of criminal activity to try to cover for his pathetic self.

    Also, Weiner didn't break the law, he just did something embarrassing. Considering that, if his constituents don't like him they can have him recalled or simply vote him out at the next election. That is what due process would look like.
    if Weiner resign, is it not Presiident Obama who fill replacement to him?

    Im sorry...maybe I missed those stories where they accused someone of a crime by hacking their systems and then specifically targeted an individual in a slanderous attack knowing full well the whole time that they (like Weiner) were in fact the guilty scumbag in question.

    This is shaping up just like the Clinton trial. Everyone focused on the Lewinsky 'scandal' while ignoring the fact he was on trial for sexual harassment by sitting on a couch with a towel draped over his dick beating off, then asked a state trooper to escort a campaign worker to his room whereby he stood up, let the towel fall, and asked her to 'kiss it'. Everyone focused on the affair (tho not the fact that the president of the country encouraged an aid to masturbate with one of his cigars, then smoked it kind of a disgusting guy when you really think about it). They focused on a consensual act, not the allegations of rape of one woman and sexual mashing of another on the day of her husbands funeral.

    I dont care that weiner sent pics of himself to 6 other women. I care that he lied about it but more so that he accused others of criminal activity while he was trying to cover his own kins and perversion. (BTW...always a nice touch when you send a topless picture of yourself with pictures of your wife in the background). Yeah...I can see why dems want to keep this guy around...

    More likely the governor of New York.

    The Governor of NY would appoint a replacement. After that, am not sure about NY law for any special elections of Representatives. The appointee may just serve out Weiner's regular term.

    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    I would assume Pelosi sees polling data indicating his continued stay could hurt the party in other states.

    Re: Pelosi declines to call for Weiner's resignation

    The leaders of the Democratic Party abandoned scandal-plagued Rep. Anthony Weiner en masse Saturday after it was revealed that he had communicated online with a 17-year-old Delaware girl, throwing into serious doubt his vow to remain in office.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the party’s top campaign chiefs — Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) — all called on Weiner to resign in statements released within minutes of each other.

    Pelosi and Israel only issued their statements after asking Weiner privately to call it quits, and when he refused, they issued their coordinated barrage on Saturday afternoon.

    “Congressman Weiner has the love of his family, the confidence of his constituents, and the recognition that he needs help,” Pelosi said Saturday. “I urge Congressman Weiner to seek that help without the pressures of being a Member of Congress.”

    A day earlier, Pelosi had declined to call for him to resign after inquiries to her office.

    Israel and Wasserman Schultz were less generous in their assessment of their colleague.

    “Anthony’s inappropriate behavior has become an insurmountable distraction to the House and our work for the American people. With a heavy heart, I call on Anthony to resign,” Israel said.

    Calling the scandal a “sordid affair, Wasserman Schultz, who is a surrogate for President Barack Obama in her role as DNC chairman, said “the behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable.”

    Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), the Budget Committee Chairman and former DCCC chairman, also joined the calls to resign on Saturday. “Anthony Weiner’s repeated violation of the public trust is unacceptable,” Van Hollen said. “He can best advance the issues he fought for by resigning immediately.”

    they can't make him quit, but they can and will make his life miserable
