Sources: Weiner set to resign seat
The New York Times is reporting that Anthony Weiner has told his friends that he is planning to resign from his seat after being subject to harsh scrutiny for errantly sending a lewd picture of himself to all of his Twitter followers. Last night, according to NBC’s Chuck Todd, the congressman called Nancy Pelosi and fellow New York Congressman Steve Israel to inform them he was resigning. This morning’s other news was that House Democrats were likely to strip the disgraced Congressman of his key seat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, in a push to force his resignation.
