Anthony Weiner to Resign Confirmed 2011

Anthony Weiner will officially end his political career today, a Democratic party source tells CNN, resigning from Congress amidst an ever-growing sexting scandal.

The politician, considered a front-runner to replace Michael Bloomberg as Mayor of NYC in 2013, admitted June 6 that he had been lying for weeks and did, indeed, send inappropriate photos to a number of women online. Since then, the mess has only grown more sordid. An actual picture of Weiner's penis surfaced last week, while leaked exchanges between him and stripper Ginger Lee indicated he attempted a cover up.

In recent days, Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama encouraged Weiner to resign. With his wife pregnant and his reputation turning uglier by the minute, it appears as if the Congressman has finally taken their advice.
