Anthony Weiner Resigning, Damn Pervert

Justice has been served!

(Yahoo) Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has told his friends he is prepared to resign from Congress, the New York Times reports.

A Democratic source tells HuffPost's Sam Stein that Weiner called Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), who chairs the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday night to alert them of his plans to step down today.

A Democratic source tells HuffPost's Mike McAuliff, "At least the nightmare is over."

In recent weeks, the embattled congressman has resisted calls to resign from his post amid intense controversy surrounding inappropriate interactions he admitted to engaging in online and lewd photos surfacing of the congressman.
