The New York Times reports that Democrat pervert Anthony Weiner will resign his seat in the US House of Representatives to avoid a severely damaging blow.
The news comes as Democratic leaders prepared to hold a meeting on Thursday to discuss whether to strip the 46-year-old Congressman of his committee assignments, a blow which would severely damage his effectiveness.
Mr. Weiner, a Democrat, came to the conclusion that he could no longer serve after having long discussions with his wife, Huma Abedin, when she returned home on Tuesday after traveling abroad with her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Word is that Weiner’s district has been trending Republican in recent years. I wouldn’t put too much stock in it, but there’s the very slight chance of a Republican pick-up here.
