Nanny Pelosi released a statement:
“Congressman Weiner has the love of his family, the confidence of his constituents, and the recognition that he needs help, I urge Congressman Weiner to seek that help without the pressures of being a member of Congress.”Not exactly strong words, but it is about time.
Next came Debbie Wasserman Schutlz:
“The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Rep. Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable,”Much better. It is about time that someone in the democratic party actually stand up to this perv.
On Saturday afternoon, Mr. Israel called Mr. Weiner, a New York Democrat, to let him know that Mr. Weiner’s situation had become politically untenable and that he would be calling on him publicly to step downI have yet to see that statement, but again this is the man who oversees the fundraising for the party's congressional candidates. He has a great deal of power. But, at the end of the day the state party seems to be taking the strongest action. New York has lost two congressional seats due to the exodus of the tax laden state, the New York Legislator has basically said it will be Weiner's seat that will go. At most he will be in office another 18 months.
The reality is if he stays in office it says a great deal about who we are as a nation, and you know what? None of it good. Especially since sending unsolicited texts of your penis is not a good enough reason, it took them no longer being able to deny the fact that at least one girl he dealt with on-line was underage. There is no proof that anything tawdry happened, it seems the most risque thing said had to do with his cape and tights.
“I came back strong. Large. Tights and cape. …”Whatever the heck that means. But I will tell you what, I wouldn't want him talking to my under aged daughter. Heck, I wouldn't want him to talking to my kids at all, regardless of their ages.
