A while back, I posted one post about Anthony Weiner, and his indiscretions as a member of Congress. I said then that he probably would hold his seat, because that is the way the democrat party does it. Well, miracle of miracles. He is being forced to step down by that same democrat party. I actually think it has to do with two things.
The Democrat party knows right now, that they are in trouble because of their socializing of this nation, against the will of the people, so they figured that they had better do the right thing this time….and…
Anthony Weiner is no Ted Kennedy. He isn’t anywhere near as popular with the party as he was. In an AP story this morning was this:
AP sources: Weiner to resign over sexting scandal
By DAVID ESPO and ANDREW MIGA, Associated Press – 17 mins ago
WASHINGTON – New York Rep. Anthony Weiner has decided to resign his seat in Congress after a two-week scandal spawned by lewd and even X-rated photos the New York lawmaker took of himself and sent online to numerous women, relieved Democratic officials said Thursday.
A formal announcement was expected later in the day.
Weiner, 46, has been at a treatment facility at an undisclosed location since last weekend, and has not been seen in public since telling reporters last Saturday he intended to return to work.
One official said Weiner telephoned House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Steve Israel of New York, the head of the party campaign committee, on Wednesday evening to tell them of his plans to quit. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the private nature of the conversations.
Weiner’s decision to give up his House seat marks the end of a scandal without the sex — an event that resulted from the brash New Yorker’s use of social media such as Twitter and Facebook.
He at first denied having sent any inappropriate photos, then recanted in a remarkable news conference 10 days ago at which he admitted having exchanged inappropriate messages with several women.
His confession triggered a tabloid-style frenzy in print and online that only grew more pronounced a few days later when an X-rated photo of the 46-year-old lawmaker surfaced on a website.
After initially calling for a House ethics committee investigation, Pelosi dramatically ramped up the pressure on Saturday when she joined with Israel and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, leader of the Democratic National Committee, in calling on Weiner to step down.
Within hours, Weiner disclosed his plans to enter treatment, and Pelosi’s aides made it known that did not negate her demand for a resignation.
Several officials have said in recent days that Weiner was reluctant to make any decision about his career without speaking with his wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who had been overseas since shortly after the scandal broke.
The trip ended Tuesday night.
Abedin is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
So with all the bad news on this, Anthony Weiner is scheduled to give up his seat in the house today, and I say good riddance. People who hold these offices should be held to a higher standard because of their positions of trust that they were put into by the people. So to Anthony Weiner, Good riddance.
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans. And Bless us to start using more common sense.
