Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign - latimes.com

Bowing to pressure from his party, Rep. Anthony Weiner plans to resign on Thursday, according to Democratic sources.

The New York congressman shared his decision with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday evening, while she and other members of Congress were attending a picnic at the White House.

The decision ends a prolonged saga that began Memorial Day weekend, when Weiner mistakenly posted a lewd photo to his Twitter feed that was intended to be shared privately. He initially claimed his account was hacked, but later admitted that he had engaged in inappropriate communications with at least six women online for years.
