Anthony Weiner Resigns from Congress, Gets Heckled

by at . Comments

Amidst applause and heckling, Anthony Weiner shamefully resigned from Congress today.

Speaking at the Council Center for Senior Citizens in Brooklyn, in the district he's represented since 1998, the embattled politician had little choice but to leave his post, considering the damaging information that has been pouring out over the last two weeks.

"Today I announce my resignation, so my colleagues can get back to work and my neighbors choose a new representative," Weiner said at the press conference, apologizing to his friends, constituents and pregnant wife Huma Abedin.

From there, things got uncomfortable.

As Weiner made his announcement, the room erupted in applause. A heckler, Benjy Bronk from the Howard Stern Show, also yelled: "Are you more than seven inches?" while another audience member shouted: Get out of here pervert."

When the former Congressman left the room, a final heckler asked: "Will you maintain your hot physique?"

It's enough to almost make you feel bad for the guy.
