Reports say Weiner will resign from Congress

    Politico reports Congressman Anthony Weiner will resign.

    Sources say the New York Democrat will step down almost three weeks after he sent a lewd photo himself over Twitter.

    Weiner was slated to be a Democratic caucus hearing this morning where he was to be stripped of his committee responsibilities. Since the initial photo was uncovered, more reports have surfaced of the congressman’s interactions with women online.
