Weiner Confesses, Pelosi Wants a Weiner Probe

Anthony WeinerWhat a Weiner!Congressman Anthony Weiner announced yesterday that after a week of convoluted lies in the media, an onslaught of juvenile weiner jokes he did, in fact, send a pic of his bulge to a young woman via Twitter. Weiner said in a statement Monday, "The picture was of me and I sent it. I am deeply sorry for the pain this has caused."

Pain? Really? It's not that big, dude. Weiner also says he sent several other assorted pics to six other women.

Raw Story reports:
Weiner, a seven-term congressman who until now was seen as a leading candidate to take over as New York mayor in 2013, said he does not intend to resign his seat in the US House of Representatives.
"I don't know what I was thinking. This was a destructive thing to do," he said. But "I am not resigning. I have made it clear that I accept responsibility for this."
However, signaling his problems are not yet over, leading Democrat Nancy Pelosi, the minority leader in the House, said an ethics investigation should be opened.
"I am deeply disappointed and saddened about this situation; for Anthony's wife, Huma, his family, his staff and his constituents," Pelosi said in a statement.
"I am calling for an Ethics Committee investigation to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred."
With his admission, Weiner -- the son of a schoolteacher who as a politician has played up his middle-class, not-so-privileged upbringing -- becomes the third New York politician in recent times to get in trouble over kinky sex habits.
The state's governor, Eliot Spitzer, resigned in 2008 after being caught visiting expensive prostitutes, while earlier this year another married congressman, Chris Lee, stepped down over his attempt to arrange sex online.
