Weiner reportedly resigning

Perhaps the prospect of endless Gloria Allred/Weiner girl press conference parades finally sealed the deal.

That, or politically connected wife Huma Abedin finagled a job for him from their last, few Democrat allies in NY.

Whatever the case, the NYTimes is tweeting this morning:

“Representative Anthony D. Weiner Tells Friends He Is Stepping Down.”
Representative Anthony D. Weiner has told friends that he plans to resign his seat after coming under growing pressure from his Democratic colleagues to leave the House in the wake of revelations of his lewd online exchanges with women, said a person told of Mr. Weiner’s plans.

The news comes as Democratic leaders prepared to hold a meeting on Thursday to discuss whether to strip the 46-year-old Congressman of his committee assignments, a blow which would severely damage his effectiveness.
 Mr. Weiner, a Democrat, came to the conclusion that he could no longer serve after having long discussions with his wife, Huma Abedin, when she returned home on Tuesday after traveling abroad with her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
