    Yes, they will. When a shark smells blood he doesn't stop until he has made the kill.

    It becomes the topic of discussion about Democrats in the House. Not issues. That makes it a liability to House Democrats.

    It shows an extreme lack of judgement. Whether actually legal or illegal does not diminish this. Do we need to roll the Biden tape "Its about J-U-D-G-E-M-E-N-T" ?

    Weiner lied. As we know, too often "Its not the crime, its the cover-up".
    Of course, it's all about political posturing. Nobody politician is actually earnest in their statements on this issue, they just want to use it for political gain. The scariest thing about this is that it sets a precedent, stating that every single little miniscule thing a politician does is open for scrutiny. Divorced in the past? Why not bring it up? Cheat on your wife? What a terrible human being he'll never make it in politics! Pick a girl up at the bar? Blasphemy! It's a whole new level of slime throwing, and it's pretty disconcerting considering the fact that (as always) there's much more important things going on in the world than who Weiner sent dick pics to.

    I would say it has been like this for a while, and that the left championed it. That's another argument though.

    Why are Democrats calling for Weiner to resign now ? Cause they finally got some ethical consience to them ? Heck no !!

    It's because he distracts from the political games they want to play. They have no moral concerns to be satisfied in wanting him gone. Its all politics to them, and only politics to them.

    Weiner is heavily compromised. He needs to go. All in all, what a pissant he was.

    Those damn Democrats are always getting caught in heterosexual sex flaps and Republicans in homosexual sex flaps. Now why is that? Flamin' heterosexuals are my cup o' tea and I'm not a democrat. More power to the weiner. Who'd a thunk it?

    not only did anthony run around the networks for a week aggressively pushing a brazen lie, involving the invention of some non existent crime, he also instructed at least one of his correspondents to lie FOR HIM and provided her with some rather detailed alibis while offering the assistance of his "team" in putting together the prevarication

    the guy appears to be a psychopath

    I hear that, when Weiner gets out of treatment, he is going to run against Obama, as revenge for Obama saying that he needs to resign. Before you laugh at this, I am being dead serious. In fact, he is going to choose Eric Holder as his running mate. Do you think a Weiner Holder ticket has a chance in 2012?

    OK, OK, I wasn't being serious.

    Delaware police are investigating texting contact that beleaguered Rep. Anthony Weiner had with a 17-year-old high school junior in New Castle. Weiner's office claimed that the twitters were neither "explicit nor indecent, according to the Daily Caller.

    snip

    Weiner's twittering with the star struck teenager may have been "innocent" insofar as he may not have sent her pictures of his genitalia. But it is only "innocent" insofar as any other contact between a minor and a middle aged pervert can be, which is to say not at all.

    That was on 6/12. today it is being talked about that he did in fact send pics to this girl.

    From Democrat Underground Saturday...

    I'm watching MSNBC, while they're giving those autopsy cases. A reporter came on during the break. It seems Weiner might (keep this in mind) have sent to a 17 year old. It's under investigation.

    so, yeah.....looks like he is just slime at this point....Hell, he may even go to jail over this.
