I suppose we all knew it would come to this, but now it appears that it is in fact coming to this…
Representative Anthony D. Weiner has told House leaders and friends that he plans to resign his seat after coming under growing pressure from his Democratic colleagues to leave the House, said a top Democratic official and two people told of Mr. Weiner’s plans…
The top Democratic official said Mr. Weiner called Representative Nancy Pelosi of California and Representative Steve Israel of New York last night while they were at the White House picnic to inform them he had decided to resign on Thursday.
Mr. Weiner plans to resign in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, at 2 p.m. , at the spot where he announced his first campaign for City Council in 1992, according to two people told of his plans.
Let this be a lesson to you congresspeople out there: Although it may seem like tweeting pictures of your penis to random strangers out in the Twitterverse is a great idea that can't possibly have any negative blow-back, strange things like this can happen.
It's a crazy would we live in now. We're all learning to navigate it together.
Update: We'll be liveblogging Weiner's press conference at 2/1c.
