Breaking: Anthony Weiner Resigning

This is not strictly legal, but it does involve a lawmaker – or soon-to-be-former lawmaker. We thought you might like to know that you won’t have Anthony’s weiner to kick around anymore. The New York Times is reporting that Weiner will resign:

Representative Anthony D. Weiner has told friends that he plans to resign his seat after coming under growing pressure from his Democratic colleagues to leave the House in the wake of revelations of his lewd online exchanges with women, said a person told of Mr. Weiner’s plans.

So, for those playing along at home, Anthony Weiner is resigning because he likes to send out naked and semi-nude pictures of himself, but Charlie Rangel still has his job.

Way to keep our priorities straight, America.
