Democratic Leaders Say Rep. Weiner Must Resign

Democratic leaders are now calling on Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign after the New York lawmaker embroiled in a Twitter scandal admitted he had online contact with a Delaware teenager.

National party chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz says Rep. Weiner’s behavior is “indefensible” and his role in Congress is “untenable.”

The Florida congresswoman says “this sordid affair has become an unacceptable distraction” for everyone.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California says Rep. Weiner “needs help” and he should get some “without the pressures of being a member of Congress.”
