All major news organizations are reporting that Anthony Weiner has advised his associates that he is resigning from Congress. ABC reports the following:
Weiner, 46, has begun sharing his decision with close friends, the sources said, but has not yet sent a formal letter to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo indicating his intentions.
A Democratic source said Weiner called House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Steve Israel, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Wednesday night while they were at a White House picnic to inform them he would resign today.
If any good comes from this, maybe the media will move beyond this story soon. This has become such a major story and distraction.
