Embattled Congressman Anthony Weiner Resigns Over Sexting Scandal Amid Cheers And Jeers

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s finally over.

Congressman Anthony Weiner announced his resignation at a news conference in Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon.  He walked into the room with a look of grim determination and faced the pop of flash bulbs, half-hearted cheers and, later, an interruption by a heckler.

First came the congressman’s apology for subjecting his constituents, the nation and his wife, Huma Abedin, to the lewd photos he admittedly sent to at least six women before and after his marriage. Abedin was not with him for the announcement.

READ: Full Transcript Of Weiner’s Resignation Speech

“I am here today to again apologize for the personal mistakes I have made and the embarrassment I have caused. I make this apology to my neighbors and my constituents, but I make it particularly to my wife, Huma. I had hoped to be able to continue the work that the citizens of my district elected me to do, to fight for the middle class and those struggling to make it, unfortunately the distraction that I have created has made that impossible.

LISTEN: Anthony Weiner’s Full Resignation Speech

“So today I am announcing my resignation from Congress. So my colleagues can get back to work, my neighbors can choose a representative, and most importantly, that my wife and I can continue to heal from the damage I have caused. I have never forgotten my neighbors because they represent the same middle class story as mine…The middle class story of New York is my story and I’m very proud of that.”

During the news conference, Benjy Bronk, a writer and performer from the “Howard Stern” show, shouted “bye bye, pervert” as Weiner continued his speech.  Bronk also yelled an assortment of other distasteful comments in the middle of Weiner’s statement.

Weiner called House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Steve Israel of New York Wednesday evening to let them know about his plan to quit, conversations that were reportedly emotional and apologetic.

The decision came just a day after Abedin returned from a trip overseas with her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

It also followed a seemingly endless drip-drip-drip of new, tawdry details of Weiner’s sexting scandal. On Wednesday, a former porn star held a news conference saying she would gladly appear before any House ethics investigatory committee to talk about the texts she exchanged with Weiner.

Weiner’s departure has prompted a special election to fill the vacated seat, if it isn’t eliminated as a result of redistricting.

Governor Andrew Cuomo will need to call a special election 70 to 80 days after the vacancy is officially recognized. Then, Brooklyn and Queens Democratic and Republican organizations would get together to select a candidate to run for the position.

Among the Democrats said to want the job include former NYC Council members Eric Gioia and Melinda Katz and current councilman Mark Weprin. Councilman Eric Ulrich is considered a possible GOP contender.

It’s also not clear what Weiner will do next to earn a living: he’s spent his entire adult life working in politics.

Politics wasn’t in Weiner’s blood. He grew up in Park Slope as the son of middle class Jewish parents — his father a lawyer and mother a public school teacher.

Weiner attended Brooklyn Technical High School and then went on to graduate from SUNY Plattsburgh in 1985. He went to work for then-congressman Charles Schumer. Weiner reportedly told Schumer, “I’m going to take your job someday.”

After working for Schumer for six years, he was elected to the City Council. In 1998, he went on to Congress. In 2005, he set his sights on becoming New York City mayor but fell short.

Weiner, a polarizing figure in Congress due to his fiercely liberal political views and brash, outspoken style — who was once named one of the 50 most influential Jewish Americans, found himself without support on Capitol Hill after the sexting scandal broke.

Earlier Thursday, House Democrats had been moving forward with plans to diminish Weiner’s role in Congress by removing him from his post on the Energy and Commerce Committee. On Monday, President Barack Obama suggested Weiner should resign.

The stunning fall of the up-and-coming politician seemed to come out of left field. Weiner initially denied sending a salacious photo over Twitter, saying his account had been hacked. He then modified his story, calling it a prank. In short order, though, the true scope of the situation became clear.

Weiner held an astounding news conference in which he held back tears, admitting inappropriate behavior online both before and after his marriage.

Conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart claimed he had a graphic picture of Weiner, and promised not to release it. Within a few days, though, it hit the web, after Breitbart showed it to a pair of radio show hosts, who uploaded the picture.

Weiner sought a two-week leave of absence for unspecified treatment, but that didn’t stop the chorus of calls for him to step down.

“Weinergate,” as it came to be known, even prompted a company to build an anatomically correct Anthony Weiner doll.

How do you feel about his decision to step down? Sound off in our comments section.

  1. weiner, just kill yourself says:

    Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) remains eligible for a sizable federal pension despite his resignation from Congress, according to a tax watchdog group.

    Weiner could receive almost $1.3 million in taxpayer funds over his lifetime, depending on his contributions to the voluntary program and when he chooses to draw down his pension benefits, the National Taxpayers Union (NTU) reported.

    “Anthony Weiner’s resignation from Congress may have put an end to the ‘distractions’ and ‘embarrassments’ that prevented him from getting back to work, but for American taxpayers, the scandal may have only just begun,” NTU Executive Vice President Pete Sepp said Friday in a statement.

    Reeling from a virtual-sex scandal and pressured by fellow Democrats to resign, Weiner announced Thursday that he’ll do just that. The New York Democrat is in his seventh term representing Brooklyn and Queens, but also worked as a staffer to then-Rep. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) between 1985 and 1991.

    Under federal pension rules, Weiner could begin drawing down reduced benefits 10 years from now, when he turns 56. Under that scenario, he could collect up to $32,357 annually, totaling $1.12 million over his lifetime, NTU estimates.

    If he opts to take the full pension — which kicks in at age 62 — he could receive $46,224 each year, totaling $1.28 million over his lifetime, NTU found.

    Joe Bruins fan: No you’re no Weiner. Its going to Boston. Cry all you want.

    Rep. Weiner: Sigh, I must resign because the Bruins won their first Stanley Cup in 39 years

    WHY IS EVERYONE WASTING TIME ON THIS NON-SENSE STILL?? AND THE RENT CONTROL ISSUE IS NOT RESOLVED??????

  6. caleb goldfarb says:

    The Jewish community would appreciate it Mr. Weiner if you would take your rotting soul and depart this planet.

    1. HRC says:

      Wow thats a bit extreme, no?

  7. I'm With Union Right Or Wrong! says:

    Rep. Weiner isbeing hunted down by the evil anti union GOP because he’s a liberal.I’m a State union worker and proud of it. Unions are trually AMERICAN contrary to these anti union republicans & conservative that spout unions & socialism being bad BS. Another thing I don’t understand why working people in the private sector are so against us. Them of all people should be for us. They are just jealous because with get great pay & paid benefits which we are entitled to and deserve. Jon Corzine was our friend and the NJ GOP along with the Nat’l GOP fixed it where Christie would get in and try to take our jobs away from us.

    Unions have help the little working man and we are always right. We have great pay & benefits, 40 hour work week along with weekends and every holiday off paid, lots of personal & vacation time.

    Socialism isn’t a bad thing. The rich should pay more taxes to help the little man. The more money you make, the more you should pay in taxes. Thats a fact. We will not back down from Hitler Christie who want to make us work for peanuts and make us poor. I’m State union,I’m Democrat,I voted for Corzine twice, I voted for Obama who is a good president and proud of and will vote for him again in 2012, I’m a liberal and proud of it!!!!!!!!

    1. walty says:

      And stated in such an eloquent way. No wonder there is such efficiency in govt.

    2. Jimmy says:

      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
      The poster above = indoctrinated buffoon.

      1. Jimmy says:

        Whoops! Not you Walty, I meant “Im With Union Right Or Wrong” is the indoctrinated buffoon.

    3. Stick a fork in it... says:

      Hey union buffoon – Your ignorance is only eclipsed by your stupidity. But no surprise there. You work for the government after all. It’s the worthless, lazy parasites like yourself who elect mediocre demagogues like wiener to begin with. You were made for each other. I would quit saying “little working man” and just stick with “little man”. It’s a more appropriate moniker for both you and your pathetic failure of a representative.

  8. Charles Schumer says:

    Well, I think as a fellow liberal, Jew, and representative of Congress, I can say that Anthony did the right . . . oh, wait, this is an internet forum. There are no cameras here. Sorry. I thought I was on camera.

    1. Scott says:

      LMFAO

    2. JEWMER says:

      Too bad we can’t chuck Chuck

  9. Walty says:

    Typical horrible reporting. Marcia Kramer ‘thinks’ what the wife said and it gets broadcast. When did I switch from ‘CBS News’ to ‘CBS Opinion’. Also the ‘sad’ event that a guy was arrested for getting in front of the Weiner car – what is so sad about that? Every night it the same overuse of adjectives that make no sense or are just wrong. My opinion – the local CBS News ‘journalists’ are idiots.

  10. Jimmy says:

    Enough with the witty headlines. Are you trying to outdo that other model of journalistic excellence – the NY Post.?

    1. Billy Barty says:

      Actually the NY Times suck.

  11. Antoinette says:

    If Weiner text me a picture of his weiner, I’d be like, EWWWW. He is ugly. Why any women would want him is beyond me. I know alot of better looking men who I would like them text me a picture of their weiners

  12. Peepa says:

    This is a sick, sick man. He did the right thing to resign, the only thing. Now he has to go and get some serious professional help. What is really scary is that many other men are apparently walking around our city & in our subways who have “habits” like this. How do we treat all of them?

  13. LaMamma says:

    Ayo, Schmuck.

  14. mr. mxylptlk says:

    Time for a Weiner Roast.

  15. Jo'Mamma says:

    Huma, please take those 2 kitties with you when you pack up. Don’t leave them with That Man. God knows what they’ve already seen when home alone with him.

  16. Bunny says:

    I’m sure Bill Clinton already has his fangs out for a sip of Huma’s honey. He’s probably playing the Tea and Sympathy thing with her like a fiddle. Still, Huma would be better off crashing at the Clinton’s pad for the time being, she’s got to get out of that Weiner apt. now, it’s totally dripping with skeeve. Let him live with the two cats, who have probably seen everything go down and want to toss their cookies on his rug.

    Huma, there’s always a guest room here for you until you sort things out. Bill promises not to lay a hand on you, and I can assure this. Pack up your stuff and call me when your’re ready to have a car pick you up. Get out of that house now.

  18. Bill McK. says:

    DONE & DUSTED. Now let’s get on with our lives, everyone.

  19. Lollie L. says:

    One less flaming, narcissistic, out of touch Liberal in Washington is a good thing. Especially since this sicko represented NY. How he hung on tooth and nail is beyond me; he really wanted Pelosi to pry his position from his cold, dead hands it seemed. He’s done in politics. He will not rise above like Spitzer – who is a completely different type of man. At least Spitzer cashed out the day after being discovered and spared NY’ers weeks of what Weiner put us through. At this point, Weiner may be able to get a job at the post office, if he’s lucky. GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD TRASH.

  20. Stick a fork in it... says:

    Well, that’s one worthless cIvil servant down. How many more to go….?

  21. m says:

    I really don’t care what politicians do in their bedrooms – what do care about is that they LIE about it. If you get caught and especially in this modern technology times – admit it!!! In realtity is NONE OF THE PUBLIC’S BUSINESS WHAT GOES ON IN A POLITICIANS BEDOROOM!!! THEY DON’T CARE WHAT YOU DO!!!!

  22. Jim D says:

    Good riddance creep!

  23. RM says:

    A typical sissified, so called..”liberal male”. Sadly for the ladies, this is what is generally available today. There are still real traditional men who don’t have hands like little girls, minds of twerps and personalities of spoiled brats…but you must seek them out. The feminization of males in our country by a sick liberal agenda has turned boys into peevish, primping, hysterical adults with no common sense or bedrock values….yeah, keep voting for the liberal scourge and we’ll see if we can kill the country altogether!

      The guy is an absolute disgrace! They’re being quite nice here.

  26. GoodbyeA..H... says:

    Goodbye to a loud mouth, venom spewing left wing radical liberal. Who Say’s there is no good news????

  27. danny says:

    Finally! We can have an elected official that has never lied cheated or stole. Oh. I guess nobody’s running. Ever.
    He shouldn’t resign for this. We (Americans) need to let our officials have a private life outside of DC. This is between him and his wife.
    Let me ask you all, if you got caught cheating on your wife, would your job/career get jeopardized? Goose, meet gander.

    1. Tom G says:

      If I was sending naked pictures to women around the country- then lied and made up a story how I was hacked– then went on talk shows to lie some more– then yes- I would be fired.
      I forgot– it’s ok to lie if you are an elected official. As long as you have a D behind your name- or it’s just sex or sex related things you lie about.
      Good grief

      “Weiner beat!”
      “Weiner in a tight spot.”

    2. I'm With Union Right Or Wrong! says:

      Burtha,

      How right you are. I think its nothing but a republican witch hunt to get rid of Weiner, who supports unions and is for the little guy.

  36. Dale Auburn says:

    This is stupid…

    In the 1990’s, Bil Clinton LIED about an affair. Still, Democrats supported him.

    In the 2000’s, George Bush LIED about weapons of mass destruction and started two disastrous wars (resulting in thousands of dead soldiers) for his own monetary gain. Still, Republicans supported and re-elected hm.

    Now, Weiner lies about some photos and everybody gangs up on him. What changed? What happend to blind and absolute loyalty to one’s party?

    1. Vinnie from Queens says:

      It’s called the 2012 re-election of President Barack Obama, and nobody wants this effing dikhead to be an obstacle or distraction to that goal.

      1. Barry's gonnaloose says:

        Weiner’s wiener is the least of dumbo’s problems …. just sayin’

      2. Nobama says:

        Yea since he accomplished nothing in four years he deserves more time.

    2. IgnoranteElephante says:

      Yes Dale. Keep going with the Bush lied. His arguments were supported by intelligence that was reviewed by a Democratic majority in Congress. You’re not suggesting Congress didn’t review all of the submitted information before agreeing to invade Iraq, are you.

      Last I heard, Dale, one of those “disasrous” wars was with Afghanistan, and it had nothing to do with weapons of mass destruction. In fact, Obama implemted a troop surge there. Does September 11, 2001 ring a bell with you or was that a lie too?

  37. The Bishop says:

    Weiner’s going to pull out!

      Stand firm Mr. Weiner

    finally, put this all to bed, no pun intended

  40. l says:

    finally, put this to rest and move on

  41. Vinnie from Queens says:

    Fantastic!!!!! The best news I’ve heard coming out of this mess. And I hope this ends his political career [this clown who was obsesses with his “package” was going to run for NYC mayor ???] and he is forced to get a job that he is far more qualified for…one that ends with the words “You want a hot apple pie with that?”

    1. George says:

      I would place a large wager on the fact you are about 30 years old and a school teacher living at home with his mother. Personally, I can’t think of anything better to be obsessed about than one’s own Weiner.

      1. George says:

        But, I am obsessed more with Weiner’s weiner as I, like Ellen, have given this man oral pleasures, the likes of hich you can’t imagine.

  42. Ellen says:

    the voters should have had a say so in this, Not the news medial or any Political Party.

    1. Brian says:

      You are so right Ellen.

    2. Ellen says:

      As someone who knows her way around this man’s Hebrew National, Ihaving wrapped my lips around it many times, I am saddened that he was forced to resign.

      1. Carol says:

        ” Your lips around what. Really

      2. Steve says:

        Your lips were wrapped around what. rotflmao. He is one obnoxious A H That is why he resigned,

  43. Peter says:

    Now he can do sexting on a full time basis.

  44. Idratherbegolfing says:

    How come it was recommended by many top ranking democrats including the president that Weiner resigns but nobody asked Charlie Rangel to resign. Rangel was convicted of ethics violations and if he was an average citizen he would be behind bars. Weiner is a moron for doing what he did but he sent some stupid tweets and text messages. Rangel took illegal gifts, forgot to report $500K to the IRS that was sitting in one of his bank accounts, used rent controlled apartments in Harlem for his office and got a sweetheart loan on a brownstone that he rented out but claimed as his primary residence. Why didn’t Barack, Nancy and Harry Reid call out Rangel.

    1. Tadeusz Po Polsku says:

      Charlie Rengel is black. It is considered political suicide to call for the resignation of a black politician. I know that a lot of you want to scream racist, but it is true. Just look at how everybody politely danced around telling Patterson that it would be inappropriate for him to seek election for a full term governr even as scandals broke one after another and it became painfully obvious he was out of touch with the populous and completely incompetent. Did Cuomo suggest he not run? Of course not. It was only after our president, who is black, suggested Patterson step down that it became okay to ask him not to run.

      For that matter, within the Democratic party it is dangerous to even run against a minority candidate in a primary. Just look what happened in the Ferrer mayoral race and the McCall gubernatorial race.

  45. brooklyn4ever says:

    It’s sad that his wife married a sleezeball and that his kid to be has a loser for a father. Imagine the stories the kid is gonna hear as he or she grows up and all the taunting to go with it. Hope as the child matures that a last name change is thorouoghly considered.

    1. Tim says:

      How do you know what kind of father he will be? Your so great you can predict the future? The birth of a child is an incredible life changing event. Once one becomes a father, they are never the same. Your comment show’s how ignorate you. Go work on yourself with your anger and hate issues instead of putting other people down. I’d like to punch you if I could you are so lame.

      1. IgnoranteElephante says:

        Tim,
        Your ignorance is out of control. Where do you live? Just look around the city and see how many children have no father. That means these absentee fathers, at least the ones who knew they had children, had kids and left. Most continued with their low life way of living just as before they became children. This is why poverty continues to flourish in this once fair city. Too many low or no income women raising children with absentee fathers. Thus, I disagree that fathering a child is life changing.
        How dare you also threaten physical violence to another poster. Only, a coward would do that while hiding behind his nice, cozy colmputer screen.

    2. Tim says:

      I apologize to you IgnoranteElephante and to you as well Brooklyn4ever. I was wrong.

      1. IgnoranteElephante says:

        Apology accepted, Tim.

  46. Garth says:

    Amen….the U.S. can now get on with its business, since the media will now run to dig up another sleeze ball to sensationalize…….

  47. Resign? says:

    That’s not good enough for me….this guy should be punished.

    1. IWonderIF says:

      Punished for what… He didnt break any laws

    2. Jack says:

      No doubt you are a women, and if you are not, you definitly have an idenity crises. Short of death, he has been and will be puished enough. His career is ruined and if his marriage isn’t ruined, he will be tortured by his wife or ex wife indefinitly. He will have a lot of pieces to pick up and it will not be easy. So when you say he should be punished, you are not terribly in touch with reality of all he has and will have to deal with.

      1. Frank D says:

        Yes, it’s so horrible. He’s not stuck being like (God forbid) us!!!!!

        What’s he got to do- – get a real job now?

        Give me a F’ing break!

  48. red says:

    Did he not think he was going to have to resign after he did this, at least he should not have included his face in the pictures.

    1. Frank D says:

      That’s the real crime. How stupid he was.

  49. Brian says:

    How in the f-uk does somebody think that, in this day in age, these messages aren’t going to come back and bite them in the arse? You’re holding a major elected office. Gee, I think I’ll send out some pics of my crank to girls. What could possibly go wrong? Idiot

    1. sally says:

      why do men think women want to see what they got? Doesn’t get them in bed any sooner. Men like their members and are controled by them a lot more than women are. What turn us on? Clean the house!
