Cantor to Weiner: Resign

posted at 2:38 pm on June 7, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

This didn’t take long:

At a press conference in Louisa, Virginia, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor called on the scandal-embroiled Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, to resign his position as a U.S. Congressman.

“Congressman Weiner and his constituents will make that decision,” Cantor said during a Louisa County Chamber of Commerce luncheon. “I certainly don’t condone his activity and I think he should resign.”

The local paper also picked up on Cantor’s challenge to Weiner, but includes a further comment from Cantor:

Though Cantor said he believes Weiner should resign, he said the decision is ultimately up to Weiner and his constituents.

“We’ve got a lot of serious challenges in this country and a lot of work for Congress to do,” Cantor said. “The last thing we need to do is get enmeshed in a discussion about Congressman Weiner and his Twitteractivities.”

As a member of Republican leadership, Cantor’s statement carries some heft, but as a Republican, probably not with Weiner himself.  The media will highlight Cantor’s message as a further political escalation over Weiner’s activities, which it certainly is.  As the House Majority Leader, the statement will have more impact than GOP chair Reince Priebus’ identical demand earlier in the day, for instance.

If Cantor is right about leaving this between Weiner and his constituents, this development in his district might mean more than statements from any Republicans:

Some of Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s constituents made it clear Tuesday they want him gone.

“Resign Pervert Weiner,” read the sign taped on the window of his Sheepshead BayBrooklyn, office. …

“I think he should be barred out of politics. He’s disgusting and a pervert,” Ronnie Homan, 50, of Borough Park, Brooklyn, said after Weiner made his tearful admission Monday.

Maya Goldstein, 44, of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, agreed, and said the congressman’s teary TV breakdown shows he needs help.

“He should resign immediately because of his lies,” she said. “He should get some therapy… When it comes time for reelection, I’m definitely not voting for him.”

I’m still skeptical that Weiner will resign — unless his fellow Democrats get sick of hearing about him from their own constituents.  If they’re calling Weiner a pervert in his own district, one can imagine what people think outside of NY-09.  The big news will be if and when a prominent Democrat among leadership publicly calls for Weiner’s resignation to end the distractions and allow NY-09 constituents to have proper representation in Congress.

When will that call come, and who will make it?  I’m not expecting it to ever come, frankly, but unless it’s someone like Steny Hoyer or James Clyburn making the demand — or another member of the New York City Congressional delegation — I’m betting Weiner tries to brazen his way through it.

Comment to Anthony Weiner: RESIGN.

MORE, PLEASE.

Speak up, Republicans. Force the Democrats’ hands here, since they’re obviously not in any hurry to shuffle him out.

Let’s go, Boehner.

Good Lt on June 7, 2011 at 2:42 PM

Right now I would think the Dems would be thrilled about the diversion he is supply from all the bad Obama news.

Cindy Munford on June 7, 2011 at 2:43 PM

Only r’s resign when they are in a mess like this slug, not d’s! The dc bunch and msm sees to it the r’s are gone stat! Just look how many d’s have gobs of crud they have done and are still in dc with a tiny slap on the hand, if that!

I believe that Weiner should stay in Congress and drag this along all the way until election 2012.

With a name like his, Boehner would be wise to let Cantor handle it. The jokes would just write themselves. :p

Keep it up Wiener. Let’s drag this out another week.

Ted Torgerson on June 7, 2011 at 2:49 PM

Weiner is a shining example of our progressive ruling elite.

There are rules, both ethic and moral. Those rules are for the rest of us. Weiner has his own set of rules, which change to suit Weiner’s ambition.

This is all so political. Lie first, smear others, then confess.

He’s waiting on the polling to decide what has to happen next.

How long did it take? Requests for Resignation should have taken place 10 minutes after he admitted to this.

portlandon on June 7, 2011 at 2:52 PM

Will Rangel tell Weiner to resign?

I was actually passing by his apartment building today, I live nearby, CNN has it staked out on 24 Hour Weiner patrol, it’s a little embarrassing.

amazingmets on June 7, 2011 at 2:53 PM

Let him stay. Maybe he’ll shut up between now and November 2012… and if he does open his mouth, everybody will just laugh… no use risking another loud-mouthed Socialist from NY filling the void.

Yes, until it stops being a distraction and starts being a political sledge hammer used against the Democrat Party – the twittering class LOL!

Hey Rep Weiner it’s good to see you can get something to rise, wish you could do the same for the American economy….

That’s tame compared to what’s going to get thrown at them. A good marketer will go to town, using Anthony Weiner as the Democrat’s Poster Boy. It’s why Pelosi wants him gone. Think how Steele’s website “Fire Nancy Pelosi” helped the Republicans last November. Anthony Weiner handed them the ammo, and loaded the gun for them. loaded gun heh.

Hoyer may be making that call shortly. IIRC, the Minority Whip was having a stern talk with Weiner over the weekend, before the latest few rounds of accusations arose and Weiner’s clusterf*ck of a press conference.

WashJeff on June 7, 2011 at 3:02 PM

It’s not smart for Republicans to call for a resignation… Weiner’s interaction with 3 high school girls must be investigated though…

The right bloggers are not focusing on demanding an investigation though so it may fall through cracks. That would be tragic. We need some sort of indication that professionals are going to look into this.

http://patterico.com/2011/06/05/more-weiner-messages-to-young-girls-evidence-the-media-was-duped-into-dropping-the-investigation/

Here is part of the statement by the “parent”(PR Rep):

“We would also like to express our disgust at the harassment of Rep Weiner and hope that everyone remembers this man did nothing wrong. Look at your own behavior and your own mental hang-ups and ask yourself why you find certain things so perverse — it says more about you than it does about the person you are accusing.

And concerning a certain adult actress, we would like to add that this girl did nothing wrong. If you actually read her blog it is about politics and chronic illness. My husband and I read it together with our daughter. Again, ask yourself what your own personal prejudices and hangups are before you make accusations.”

W*T*F… there is so much misdirection there and in the whole statement it’s not even funny…

I’m sure there are a lot of candidates in purple districts that do not want to be known as running on the weiner party.

pedestrian on June 7, 2011 at 3:05 PM

Homeboy threw everyone under the bus. Amorphous “hackers”, the “media”, “Breitbart”—they’re all just caricatures, someone to blame for his stupidity. Look at the behavior, he lashes out and damages people and entities of considerable value in order to protect himself from humiliation. He would do the same to our NATIONAL SECRETS.

Nuclear weapons? how much to keep those pictures away from my wife? please…no! Fighter jet capabilities? Oh no, please say you won’t show that to my mother, noooo! I’ll give you what you want just let me keep my job and my wife, whatever you want, just don’t show my wife.

he is COMPROMISED and admitted it yesterday. He has NO BUSINESS being privy to ongoing research and development programs. He should be denied access to sensitive briefings, for he is having trouble enough with his own briefs.

Strip him of his security clearance and make him shovel sh!t in a military stockade for 10 years.

then, punish him.

As a member of Republican leadership, Cantor’s statement carries some heft, but as a Republican, probably not with Weiner himself

Maybe Cantor should get creative and setup a twitter account that makes him look like an 18yr old girl and DM the guy, get him worked up and say “Resign!” at some point…

attention getters.

ted c on June 7, 2011 at 3:10 PM

Am I the only one that wants this knucklehead to STAY in his office?

I mean seriously – he’s an example of Dimmocritic hypocrisy, lieing, and debauchery. At best – he’s going to be an ineffective Congressman for a district that would simply vote in a more effective Dimmocrit one if he resigns. Seems to me the wounded wee-ner helps us if he stays on.

To me – it’s all win if the guy stays in.

And besides – so far, there’s no allegations he did anything really illegal aside from perhaps using government equipment in his horndog escapades – which, pathetically, don’t seem to have culminated in anything close to the carnal.

Which is something that can’t be said for David Vitter … his adventures were most decidedly illegal.

(Back in serious mode here): Weiner’s derangement casts a deranged pall over the entire House, is the issue. Not just Democrats (but them, certainly, if they don’t kick the guy out), but the entire House, both parties.

We the voters are already way past fed-up with the incompetence and awfulness, but Weiner’s taken things to a new, very low point.

Ogabe on June 7, 2011 at 3:30 PM

If we had a man who wore big boy britches in the White House he might tell him to take a hike.

I fail to see the need for an ethics investigation…the man confessed (finally). With the number of jobless and a rotten economy do we really want our tax dollars used to pay good money to seedy characters who hang out in our congressional offices playing ridiculous and possibly dangerous games on social networking sites? Someone should have taken the keys away from him yesterday. Or last week.

scalleywag on June 7, 2011 at 3:31 PM

Weiner is like her son-in-law. Do you think she’ll do that?

I think she would if the press would do their jobs.

You have a guy with almost direct access to the Secretary of State of the United States doing really stupid things with unknown women on the internet and leaving himself majorly open to blackmail and everyone just wants to talking about is the sex aspect.

I think it’s a national security issue. But what do I know..I voted for Chris Lee.

Caper29 on June 7, 2011 at 3:31 PM

Part of me wants him o stay. Think about the campaign ads.
“Democrats too buys getting off to solve the nations economic crisis” or “while you’re losing your shirt, The Dems are taking theirs off” or”In San Francisco, this is called ‘draining the swamp’”

I’m sure we can punch it up a bit, but you get the gist. The Republicans need to make Topless Weiner the poster boy for the feckless Democrats.

Iblis on June 7, 2011 at 3:34 PM

The longer Weiner remains a national joke…

… the more he becomes the face of the Democrats.

Cantor shouldn’t have said he should resign…

… he should have pointed out that Weiner, his actions, and his lies are indicative of the Democrats starting from Obowma down to the union goons.

Seven Percent Solution on June 7, 2011 at 3:35 PM

… he should have pointed out that Weiner, his actions, and his lies are indicative of the Democrats starting from Obowma down to the union goons.

Seven Percent Solution on June 7, 2011 at 3:35 PM

Yes, that would force Obie and the Dems to either come out and denounce his words, thus throwing Weiner under the bus, or ignore him and let his accusations stand, which would be worse.

fossten on June 7, 2011 at 3:37 PM

Weiners attempt to hang on is actually quite sad.

Why would he wait for the various resolutions to come to the floor of the house regarding his actions? Those debates will be on c-span with highlights all over the news. And there will be NO DEMOCRATIC SUPPORT in those debates for Weiner.

Freddy on June 7, 2011 at 3:38 PM

You’re darn right he should resign.

He is a member of the U.S. Congress, of which there are 435 of them. Then there are 100 members in the U.S. Senate. Then we have the POTUS, for a grand total of 536 people out of 300+ million people in the USA. These are the most powerful people in the world.

He went and besmirched this whole organization and made the country look like a bunch of buffoons. He needs to go, and go NOW.

maryo on June 7, 2011 at 4:00 PM

He tweeted the Weiner, but did he send some buns too?

maryo on June 7, 2011 at 4:02 PM

Resign? Not only no, but HECK NO! I want Weiner’s face out there as it always has been, speaking for his party and its parasites and against Republicans and American ideals.

That press conference was a preemptive move designed to stop the investigations before the authorities have to be called in. Nixon’s people called it a “modified limited hangout.” Didn’t work for them, don’t let it work for Weiner.

There are plenty of moral, ethical, and legal failings on both sides of the aisle. The reason Republicans tend to resign and go away quietly and Democrats tend to stick it out has nothing to do with the character of the politicians.

It’s the character of their voters which calls the tune. Republican voters expect some sort of standards be upheld and some price be paid for violating them. Democratic voters are just reprobates; they don’t give a rip about ethics, law, or morals as long as their public teat is still giving the sweet milk of other people’s money.

Remember the great Democratic “scandals” of recent years . . . Teddy Kennedy, Clinton, Rangel, Conyers, Frank, Dodd, Waters, Studds . . . not only did they all avoid prison and resignation, they didn’t even seem to lose any supporters over their crimes.

Adjoran on June 7, 2011 at 4:24 PM

Democrats hitting on women. What’s new about that? Hell, Splash Kennedy KILLED a woman. He really suffered for that, didn’t he?

Nah, Weiner will go on to progressive fame and glory.

countrybumpkin on June 7, 2011 at 5:31 PM

Democrats completely lack morals and honor. Don’t expect them to behave like decent people – not Weiner, and not his supporters. Sad but true.

I just listened to a liberal woman, a self-professed Christian woman, who thinks everyone should leave Weiner alone because he didn’t break any laws. Apparently the argument that he lacks judgment and is untrustworthy (a keen security risk and a proven liar who is very, very good at it) carries absolutely no weight with her.

She probably calls herself a conservative, too, because it sounds right to her.

Don’t be late to the party.

I’m betting Weiner tries to brazen his way through it.

Of course he will. In his own mind, he has a destiny, and all of this is a bump in the road. Nothing more dangerous than a Napoleon Complex combined with a grose schvantz.

Cantor to Weiner: Resign

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

We want Weener to stay in Congress. If he leaves, people will forget about how sleazy democrats are. Every day he stays in office will be a reminder of that sleaziness. Of course, have a republican call for resignation will probably cause Weener to put up more resistance to leaving. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…you don’t suppose Cantor is up to some kind of reverse-psychology, do you?
