A lot of Buckeyes said they wanted JT to stay, too, but the university asked him to do the right thing and resign. Weiner should follow suit as his behavior is a disgrace to the halls of Congress.

To each their own. If a majority of Mr. Weiner's constituents want someone with his low charachter to represent them in the United States Congress, than so be it.

But they also at the same time shouldn't complain when Mr. Weiner's ability to legislate is greatly diminished given the fact that his political effectiveness in Washington has been totally obliterated.

I think Ms. Pelosi already has, or will in the future sit Mr. Weiner down and set him straight - which is to tell him that if he doesn't resign he is only going to hurt the party and as well hurt the people in his district since his trustworthiness, and his political clout are gone.

Mr. Reid and Ms. Pelosi know that if Mr. Weiner continues to serve in Congress, that he will in turn become a political liability, much like Mr. Vitter has become to the republicans.

Even if scandal-stained Rep. Anthony Weiner didn't want to stay in office, he needs to stay in office.

Unlike many of his peers in the House, Weiner doesn't have a business or even a law degree to fall back on.

Weiner, 46, took home $156,117 in 2010, according to his federal tax returns released by his staff.

His humiliated wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, earned $154,000 in 2009, federal records show.

He owes between $10,000 and $15,000 on his American Express card, according to his most recent financial-disclosure forms.

If he steps down, he could grovel to cable TV execs for talking-head "analyst" gigs that hopefully pay more than the $825 he gets for appearing on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher."

But with Weiner's reputation in ruins, other lucrative jobs may be hard to get.

"He would most likely have to go to friends in the business sector, but he doesn't have a financial background," said political consultant Joseph Mercurio.

No big surprise here now is there...most democraps have never held a real job and the weiner is the poster boy for government teet sucking.

I agree with everything you have to say except the last line. He NEVER WAS fit to be a US Representative. He is the worst kind of blood sucker who thrives on being a jerk.

Weiner's constituents should be allowed to keep him if they want to. His behavior was stupid and left him weak, politically. But look at his colleagues. Should they write up a report of all reps and senators who have done unethical things lately and then have a spring (summer) cleaning? Don't think that's going to happen. The Republicans let their own Sen. Ensign stick around for a year, and he did way more than texting! Ensigns deal even involved a financial payoff!

He's worse than Tressel, and Tressel was forced to resign. Weiner is a sexual pervert and human reprobate. I thought our elected representatives should live up to high moral standards. But it looks like the Democrats love this guy. I know my rep in Congress does.

And now it seems there's a minor involved.

If anyone still thinks this is "OK" and he should stay in office, it speaks volumes to how morally bankrupt we now are.

He's Jewish in an overwhelmingly Jewish district. They're not going to turn on one of their own.

Politicians like Weiner who possess rotten morals are supported by constituents that likewise possess rotten morals. This is nothing new. It is part of the long standing and ever present rotten morals game of duplicity and hypocrisy, that these people faithfully engage in and insidiously play.
