Weiner Rep Announces Resignation


UPDATED: The Washington Post reports that Weiner’s office  has said Weiner will address reporters at 2 p.m., at a senior citizens center in Brooklyn.

Weiner’s decision comes weeks after he posted a suggestive picture of himself–intended as a private message to a college student in Washington state–to his public Twitter account.

Associated Press is reporting that Rep. Weiner has told associates he will resign over texting scandal.  Anthony Weiner called Nancy Pelosi and Steve Israel last night to inform them he had decided to resign on Thursday.
