    Yes they will. But in the meantime, he has disgraced himself with his conduct and he has embarrassed and betrayed those who have put their faith in him standing by him for the last few days. I love his strong voice for the American worker. I love his strong voice against the forces of the right. I love his stand on the issues of importance in the nation. But he did what he did and he needs to pay a price for it so as not to take down anyone else with him. Vitter should have resigned. He didn't. Two wrongs do not make a right.

    With this type of damage being done to the Democratic Party and in a Presidential election year - this has little to do with constituents and everything to do with elections, especially of one Barack Obama. If anyone even hints that Weiner's exit would be good for Obama, the dude is gone. Let's see what happens in the next few days - if the bad press doesn't let up, he will be told to resign.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'm sure you'd say that if he had this (R) after his name too, right?

    Anybody who believed his silly "hacker" excuse and saw him sweating and dodging those one-on-one "interviews" knew he was lying from the get-go. If they didn't they are too dumb to live.

    The guy clearly likes to have his massive ego stroked by women he met over the internet... and he probably talks dirty to them, too. That's between him, his family and, at the next election, his constituents.

    Otherwise, I'd leave it up to the people of his district.
    I gotta go with this, its the most logical.

    If I was him Id probably resign but thats me.
    If I was in his district I wouldnt vote for him but thats me.

    If he broke the law, later gator, otherwise let the cards fall where they may. My guess is he'll naturally be replaced.

A person with scruples, any shred of class would just come out and admit it, say his resignation is immediate and that's it.
    If we got rid of every Congressman and Senator who did something juvenile then they maximum amount of time each one served in their position would be lucky to get to the 3-month mark.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    we do not have the right to demand he resign - only his constituents have that. but as a man, he should.

    No because it has nothing to do with "governing" so to say. Its moral personal issue.

    It's an argument against.

    It's not illegal or against the House's rules to be juvenile. Neither is adultery.

    Now he may make the choice to resign based on all this. But that's his choice to make.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
