Now he’s got plenty of time to post photos of his Weiner on Twitter.
Scandal-scarred Rep. Anthony Weiner resigned his seat from the U.S. House on Thursday, ending a once-promising political career after his sexually-charged online behavior was exposed.
“Today I am announcing my resignation from Congress, so my colleagues can get back to work, my neighbors can choose a new representative and most importantly that my wife and I can continue to deal with the damage I have caused,” he said at a news conference in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.
His announcement was met by some cheers and heckling in the packed room, including from one who could be heard saying, “Goodbye, pervert.”
……For nearly three weeks, Weiner has been embroiled in a scandal over lewd pictures and messages that he sent to at least six women on Twitter and Facebook over a three-year period.
Weiner tried to quell the growing furor over the scandal by taking a two-week leave from the House on Monday to seek treatment at an undisclosed location. But a revolt from Democratic leaders only grew stronger as they had planned to meet Thursday to consider whether to strip Weiner of his role on the Energy and Commerce Committee before he resigned.
Good riddance. Boo fucking hoo, asshole. Every time a Republican makes the same mistake, the Democrats dance on their politcal grave like Fred Astaire.
