New York Rep. Anthony Weiner announced his resignation from Congress today after a creating a scandal that has dominated the news for the last month and ended a once-promising political career. The scandal involved Weiner’s sexually-charged online behavior.
The House Ethics Committee on Monday began a preliminary inquiry that could have bloomed into a full investigation if Weiner had continued to ignore calls to resign.
“I’m here today to again apologize for the personal mistakes I have made and the embarrassment I have caused,” he said reading from a brief statement in Brooklyn.
“I make this apology to my neighbors and my constituents, but I make it particularly to my wife, Huma.”
Do you think that this was the right move on his part? Is there a possibility that Anthony Weiner will ever be able to get his foot back into politics?
