U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner, D-NY, the disgraced politician representing New York City’s 9th congressional district voters, is being forced to resign over the WeinerGate scandal that has angered President Barack Obama, compelling the U.S. President to tell Ann Curry of NBC News: “I can tell you that if it was me, I would resign.”
After denying that he posted lewd pictures on him on Twitter, Weiner later confessed his sins hoping for forgiveness from his constituency, many of whom are sympatheic for his pregnant wife, Huma Abedin. Apparently, the Twitter sex scandal (or Weiner sexting scandal) has taken its toll on the legitimacy of his career.

Recently appearing on the Opie and Anthony radio show, political activist Andrew Breitbart showed the two radio hosts lewd photos of Weiner, resulting in Breitbart being vilified by Weiner’s supporters. However, when photos of Weiner began appearing online on Web sites like TMZ, an increasing numbers of voters in the 9th district demanded that Weiner resign immediately.
The hard-nosed New Yorker has vowed that he is not resigning; however, the pressure from members of the U.S. Congress is demanding that he resign immediately, prompting President Obama to call Weiner a “Distraction.”
