Anyway, Weiner called a presser for this announcement today:
Anthony Weiner announced his resignation from Congress on Thursday, apologizing for the "embarrassment" his personal behavior caused to his family and colleagues.
Standing without his wife but before a horde of media at a senior center in his Brooklyn district, Weiner said he had hoped to continue his work in the House but "unfortunately, the distraction that I created has made that impossible."
Resigning, Weiner said, will allow him to "continue to heal from the damage that I have caused."
One more special election in New York and one more chance for the Republican Party of New York to mess it up.
