Anthony Weiner

WASHINGTON — Ignoring calls from several top Democrats for his resignation, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) seems determined to keep his place in Congress. Recent reports indicate that Weiner would soon be checking into a treatment center.

Huffington Post reports:

Weiner’s office put out a statement confirming those reports and announcing that he had requested 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.”

Earlier reports suggested that Weiner had no immediate intention of resigning. “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 statement from his office continued.

Despite his apparent refusal to officially step down, Weiner may no longer have an option as enough Congressional votes could see him removed.
