Well, we didn’t see this coming at all:
The chairman of the Republican National Committee on Tuesday called for Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign from Congress, saying no investigation was necessary “to know he lied and acted inappropriately.”
Following Weiner’s dramatic news conference Monday afternoon, during which he admitted to sending explicit online communications to women over the course of several years, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi called for the Ethics Committee to look into whether the New York congressman had violated House rules.
Repeatedly & illegally using the services of prostitutes, making bathroom sex advances on cops and divorcing your cancerous wives while banging staffers while prosecuting another politician’s infidelity, these are all A-OK with the G-OP. Is Mark Foley the only Republican in Congress during this awful 21st Century to actually resign for his sex troubles? We think so. Mark Foley actually had some scruples. [LA Times]
