Anthony Weiner scandal: Democrats call for ethics probe
07-Jun-2011 (3 comments)

Democratic leaders have called for an ethics inquiry into actions by a New York congressman who admitted sending flirtatious photos of himself to women.

Congressman Anthony Weiner on Monday admitted "inappropriate" communications but said he would not resign.

The married Democrat admitted sending a shot of his crotch to an admirer.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House ethics committee should examine whether he used "official resources" in the matter or broke other ethics rules.

"I am deeply disappointed and saddened about this situation; for Anthony's wife, Huma, his family, his staff and his constituents," Ms Pelosi said in a statement released on Monday night.

Weiner , Why ???

by radius-of-the-persian-cat on

Two thinks that lead me think the world of politics and media is full of hypocracy and irrationalism: This bigotry of our "liberal" society to judge people by their sexual preferences on the one hand side and the desire of a man, married to a young, beautiful, succesful, intelligent wife (Huma Abedin) to get a kick out of sexting some mediocre pornstars, housewifes and blackjack dealer with his bald body pictures. Must be a case for a psychatrist.


DK - w/a name like Weiner, he needs to keep a "low" profile

Of course, if he was French, he would have gained 10 points in polls because of Weiner-gate.

I can't understand American Puritanism when it comes to sex.
