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.
