Anthony Weiner Takes Leave of Absence from Congress, Seeks Professional Help

by at . Comments

Anthony Weiner should really just resign already.

Under mounting pressure from fellow politicians, and with police getting involved in his recent spat of Twitter exchanges, the embattled Congressman has announced a leave of absence from his post.

What a Weiner

Can one seek professional help for being a horny moron?

A statement from Weiner's camp reads:

"[Congressman Weiner] will request a short leave of absence from the House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well. Congressman Weiner takes the views of his colleagues very seriously and has determined that he needs this time to get healthy and make the best decision possible for himself, his family and his constituents."

The move comes after Nancy Pelosi said her colleague ought to see assistance ""without the pressures of being a member of Congress."

It also takes place shortly after police interviewed a teen in Delaware. She admitted to exchange Tweets with Weiner, but said nothing "inappropriate" took place.

With his wife pregnant, there certainly do appear to be pressing personal matters for Weiner to attend to. Let's hope someone confiscates his cell phone while he's away.

You would not get taxed again your family would get taxed on the money they are reicvieng. If someone has inheritance of a billion $ should they get taxed just like anyone else who gets money? That is like saying your employer gets taxed and now you are getting again on the money they were taxed on .. It makes since because super rich families avoid taxation on their money through inheritances..Generation after generation just reicvieng money and never having to pay tax on the estate

@tired of cry babies. Why shouldnt he resign? He is a 'sleeze ball' and an 'asshole' Not fit to be a congressman. You dont have to do something 'illegal' for persons to ask for your resignation. Are you really living on this planet 'tired of cry babies?' or are you one of those aliens which so many believe exists?

Funny how lately people who do stuff like this always say they are "sick" and need to "get healthy". Used to just be called jerks. He's just trying anything to make himself look better.

He's just trying to dodge resignation. So obvious. His "request" for a Leave of Absence should be denied. This guy has proven himself to be a shifty slimeball.
