Democrats ready for full-court press to push Weiner into resigning; Update: “Dug in”

posted at 12:38 pm on June 9, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

How do we know that the heat is rising on Anthony Weiner?  The New York Times reports that Democrats are not going to take no for an answer to their demands for Weiner’s resignation.  Weiner’s hometown paper notes that the demands for an end to Weiner’s presence in Congress began yesterday with a key ally of Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Allyson Schwartz, and that sent a signal to the rank and file to follow suit:

The first — and most notable — call for Mr. Weiner’s resignation came on Wednesday afternoon from Representative Allyson Y. Schwartz, Democrat of Pennsylvania, a Pelosi ally who is overseeing the recruitment of the party’s candidates for the 2012 election cycle.

Pelosi called for an ethics investigation into Weiner’s activities within minutes of his confessional press conference.  That could have been seen as either a message to Weiner or as a way to clear the air and corroborate his position that he did not use government resources on his sexting spree.  Schwartz’ demand makes it clear that Pelosi intended the former rather than the latter, and her caucus quickly responded:

After Ms. Schwartz, a parade of rank-and-file Democrats across the country joined in, including Representative Mike Ross of Arkansas, Michael H. Michaud of Maine, Niki Tsongas of Massachusetts, Larry Kissell of North Carolina and Joe Donnelly of Indiana.

Mr. Ross, after a speech in his district, said, “I’m very disappointed in his actions.”

“I think he should resign immediately,” he added, “and I think all the appropriate authorities should investigate this matter.”

Hours earlier, Representative Steve Israel of New York, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, spoke to Mr. Weiner by phone, bluntly expressing frustration that Mr. Weiner’s political standing was deteriorating as new and more embarrassing details of his online relationships were emerging. On Wednesday morning, a photo surfaced on Twitter that was said to be an image of Mr. Weiner’s genitals that he had sent to a woman online.

The Times also reports that this is just the beginning.  If Weiner doesn’t agree to resign, they plan on bringing a parade of Democrats to Capitol Hill next week when Congress returns to demand Weiner step down.  Other Democrats not currently in office are filling the void in the meantime, including former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell, and his staff is looking for other jobs:

“I think this picture puts it over the limit, and I think he has no choice but to resign,” Rendell told Chris Matthews on “Hardball” Wednesday evening. “What I think Anthony Weiner should do is, he still has a lot to offer, he should resign, he should get treatment, and I mean real treament, maybe inpatient treatment, and if he can rehabiliate himself, can he someday down the road in New York run for office? Maybe, maybe. But he’s got to resign. He owes it to the party, he owes it to Congress, and he owes it to the issues he fought for.”

The dam is breaking on Weiner as he battles to save his career from a sex scandal made for the Internet age: In addition to the two former DNC chairmen, six House Democrats and two Democratic senators had called for his resignation by Wednesday evening. Democratic sources told POLITICO that members of Weiner’s staff were looking into new job opportunities. Some New York Democrats are starting to float the names of potential Weiner successors. Had the House been in session, the dam could have given way completely.

Two weeks ago, Weiner was a progressive crusader who had built a following through frequent television appearances and a special mastery of the social media tools Facebook and Twitter. As it turns out, his undoing was rooted in his facility with those Internet-age instruments. Now, colleagues said, he has embarrassed not only himself but his constituents and the institution of Congress. He has provided endless fodder to late-night comics while ruining a political future that seemed destined for the New York mayor’s office.

Yesterday, I told KOIN’s Nick Emmons (disclosure: Nick is my cousin) that Democrats won’t take too much damage from this scandal, mainly because the corruption in this case is entirely personal rather than political. Still, Weiner is an embarrassment, and they’re acutely unhappy with his continued presence as a distraction — and perhaps to protect themselves from being seen as tolerant of the creepy and predatory behavior Weiner demonstrated:

I’d guess that Weiner will probably cave by tomorrow afternoon and resign in the face of so much anger and rejection by his colleagues. If any further revelations surface, it might happen today. But if Weiner hasn’t resigned by the end of next week after the House comes back into session, don’t expect him to resign at all.

Update: According to CNN, Weiner hasn’t budged:

Despite mounting calls from even some fellow Democrats for him to resign, Rep. Anthony Weiner has told colleagues he has no plans to do so, a Democratic source told CNN Thursday.

Weiner told a House Democratic colleague from New York on Wednesday afternoon that he does intend to step down, the source familiar with the conversation said.

Weiner also said his wife, Huma Abedin, wants him to stay in Congress, and he cited polling data showing a majority of New York City voters want him to remain in office, the source said, describing Weiner as “dug in.”

That won’t come as good news to Senator Pat Leahy, who added his voice to the growing chorus of Democrats urging Weiner to step down:

Leahy “supports Minority Leader (Nancy) Pelosi’s request for a House investigation, and he believes that a decision by Congressman Weiner to voluntarily leave office would be in the best interests of his constituents and the House,” Leahy spokesman David Carle said.

How long can Weiner stay “dug in”?

Update II: CNN erroneously wrote the original report to say that “he does intend to step down,” which was the opposite of what they were reporting.  They have corrected the report now:

Rep. Anthony Weiner has said he has no plans to resign and that his wife wants him to stay in Congress, a Democratic source told CNN Thursday.

Weiner made the remarks to a House Democratic colleague from New York on Wednesday afternoon, rejecting growing calls from fellow lawmakers — including key Democrats — for him to step down, said the source, who was familiar with the conversation.

Weiner also cited polling data showing a majority of New York City voters want him to remain in office, the source said, describing Weiner as “dug in.”

I never noticed it when I first posted the story.  Thanks to Brian Faughnan for pointing it out.

Why would Weiner go if Rangel stayed?

Cindy Munford on June 9, 2011 at 1:06 PM

Possibly because Rangel just isn’t that photogenic?

pilamaye on June 9, 2011 at 1:15 PM

There’s no way Weiner is going to resign. Then he’d have to change his e-mail address!

Jim Treacher on June 9, 2011 at 1:10 PM

His Yahoo and AOL emails are still active. And those are the ones we know about.

JammieWearingFool on June 9, 2011 at 1:16 PM

This guy got swirlies every day of his life until he clawed his way into a position of power. No way he’s giving it up just because he’s humiliated himself and everyone who cares about him.

Jim Treacher on June 9, 2011 at 1:17 PM

Frankly, unless one of the tweet-hearts proves to be underage, I think he should stay. He did less than David Vitter, who remains.

Mutnodjmet on June 9, 2011 at 12:53 PM

Sex, politics and cover-up, nothing new here. What I object to is him calling a press conference to lie. It isn’t that he avoided the press, and got caught, he made a point to bring them in to tell the lie.

Also, with all these puns about his name, I submit my own: A Weiner is not a Weiner without a pun.

bbordwell on June 9, 2011 at 1:17 PM

So Dems use their authority to divert stimulus funds to the banks they own shares in and they get a censurem but tweet some salacious pics and stuff and you’ve got to go.

hisfrogness on June 9, 2011 at 1:18 PM

He isn’t going anyplace unless there is even more dirt that comes out of an ilegal nature (if one of the girls was underaged as some posters are saying, that might do it).

DrAllecon on June 9, 2011 at 1:09 PM

Even then he wouldn’t be carted out of there unless it’s in handcuffs.

mizflame98 on June 9, 2011 at 1:19 PM

Has anyone asked Obama anything about this? His thoughts?

catmman on June 9, 2011 at 1:20 PM

Of course the little wifey supports him; she has her own agenda. She married for power. She could care less what the Weiner does as long as her access to power is unaffected. But that access is now threatened, and if she dumps him, she’ll lose it entirely. So she’ll “stand by her man.”

Sound familiar? I hope so. She’s just like Hillary.

And just like Hillary and Bubba, the Weiner and wifey deserve each other.

Splashman on June 9, 2011 at 1:21 PM

He isn’t going anyplace unless there is even more dirt that comes out of an ilegal nature (if one of the girls was underaged as some posters are saying, that might do it).

DrAllecon on June 9, 2011 at 1:09 PM

Unless there is something sexually explcicit with an underage person it won’t mean anything.

Tweeting to underage girls isn’t illegal. Oh, it increases the ‘Creep’ factor to Defcon 2 but unless there is something sexual there it won’t budge him.

If Chris Hansen shows up, though…

catmman on June 9, 2011 at 1:22 PM

Weiner has been thrown under the bus…

keepinitreal on June 9, 2011 at 1:24 PM

If Rangel and Maxine are still there, heck if anybody who voted for this Porkulus crap is there, I don’t see why Weiner should feel he has to leave. Unless there are underaged kiddies involved, the fleecing of the American taxpayer is a much bigger crime. And besides I want the donks to own this for years to come

clnurnberg on June 9, 2011 at 1:24 PM

Weiner has a choice… he can resign with maybe his wife by his side or he can resign with maybe Chris Hansen by his side.

ninjapirate on June 9, 2011 at 1:24 PM

What does Gabby Giffords have to say about this? Nothing. It’s so nice to have effective representation . . . not.

exdeadhead on June 9, 2011 at 1:25 PM

Now the unhinged are asking for Vitter’s resignation since Weiner is being asked to resign. Why do they keep bringing up that tired old non-scandal?

mizflame98 on June 9, 2011 at 1:25 PM

Tweeting to underage girls isn’t illegal. Oh, it increases the ‘Creep’ factor to Defcon 2 but unless there is something sexual there it won’t budge him.

I think he can be kicked out of congress with something less severe than what would get you put in prison. Especially if he’s using the same grooming methods with the underage girls that he was using with the rest of them.

ninjapirate on June 9, 2011 at 1:26 PM

How long can Weiner stay “dug in”?

Until the next election. When his constituents vote him back into office. “Hey, he’s a liar and pervert, but he’s OUR liar and pervert!”

Sort of like Charlie Rangle. “He’s OUR crook!”

GarandFan on June 9, 2011 at 1:27 PM

Has anyone asked Obama anything about this? His thoughts?

catmman on June 9, 2011 at 1:20 PM

If they would, he’d deny knowing Weiner.

This is a very convenient cover-up for Obama’s troubles, domestic and abroad. He loves this story and the media, once again, are Obama-asscrawlers. Otherwise they’d hold Obama accountable for: Libya, Yemen, Iran goin nuclear, and all the domestic foibles.

Pelosi’s getting the lube.

Chuck Schick on June 9, 2011 at 1:38 PM

If he refuses to leave, let the investigation begin. Then, when the facts come back against him, vote for expulsion. This will show us if the Democrats were serious about him stepping down.

If Weenie was GAY and his tweets were to GAY guys, the Dumbs would be telling us that we cant judge Weenie’s lifestyle choices. They would be browbeating us with reminders of Tyler Clementi who committed suicide after being victimized by a forced outing. Anybody think otherwise?

The irony is that the very things that made Weenie such a power player in the Dumb party–his hubris and smug narcissistic attitude, his ability to sneer at little people–are the exact qualities that Dumbs are now fighting uphill to overcome in getting him to step down.

Western_Civ on June 9, 2011 at 1:40 PM

Even then he wouldn’t be carted out of there unless it’s in handcuffs.

mizflame98 on June 9, 2011 at 1:19 PM

That’s true, which would mean the fingernail grooves would only be on one side of the door, but I’d love to see it.

Tweeting to underage girls isn’t illegal. Oh, it increases the ‘Creep’ factor to Defcon 2 but unless there is something sexual there it won’t budge him.

If Chris Hansen shows up, though…

catmman on June 9, 2011 at 1:22 PM

That’s true, I was under the impression that the conversation with the underage girls was explicit, but I may have jumped to a conclusion there.

I can picture that Hansen meeting though:

“Senator, please have a seat. So you tweeted a picture of your Oscar Meyer to Suzie, and showed up at her house with a bouquet of flowers and an exemption from ObamaCare. What were you expecting to get in return?”

DrAllecon on June 9, 2011 at 1:43 PM

As I said when I spoke at the press conference on Monday that I exchanged inappropriate things with people and, I think that I’ve now got to deal with those consequences,” he added.

What consequences? Say “I’m sorry” and go on about his business?

scalleywag on June 9, 2011 at 1:45 PM

Weiner has stiffened his resolve…

Seven Percent Solution on June 9, 2011 at 1:46 PM

mainly because the corruption in this case is entirely personal rather than political.

Au contraire, Ed. On the surface, yes. But I posit that the corruption of the MSM into a propaganda wing of the Dems which pushes their agenda and candidates–and savages any who dare oppose them–is the much larger, political issue.

So, I think the corruption in this case is mostly political. Also, there’s the old adage that the personal is the political. If true, it’s hard to separate the two.

Christien on June 9, 2011 at 1:48 PM

The guy is a real “weiner”, no doubt about it, but all these calls for him to resign are silly. The guy has done much worse things as part of his actual job…..things that actually impact my life. I mean, if the things Debbie Wasserman Schultz has said and done publicly recently(which DO impact my life) aren’t grounds for resignation, you’ll have to excuse me if I don’t get too worked up over some pics sent over the internet from one consenting adult to another. For all we know, his wife was cool with it.

Does it mean he’s immoral, untrustworthy, and lacking in judgement? Sure……but that’s nothing new. He’s been all those things for years, but no one was calling for his resignation over it. He’s a pig, but if we’re going to whine about poor judgement and honesty, let’s do it on the stuff that matters.

xblade on June 9, 2011 at 1:49 PM

Is he on any important committees?

Pelosi could remove him from them.

Wethal on June 9, 2011 at 1:50 PM

The more I see this guy digging in, the more I am getting the impression that he is being deluded by his own power and prestige.

I think Weiner actually believes that not only is he above the law, but that he thinks he didn’t really do anything wrong.

It may indeed take an order of expulsion to get him out of office. Because I think this guy is just plain nuts.

pilamaye on June 9, 2011 at 1:50 PM

Stay the course, Weenie Guy, stay the course.

Bruno Strozek on June 9, 2011 at 1:52 PM

ninjapirate on June 9, 2011 at 1:26 PM

Oh, I agree. But as it stands right now it would take something illegal for Weiner to voluntarily resign.

This guy is slick. That’s why he didn’t immediately order any kind of police investigation when he threw out the “hacked” excuse. Had he done so, they could get him for all kinds of illegal stuff.

Claiming the “hack” though and NOT calling for an investigation is what inevitably sunk his ship. Had he come out with the “prank” excuse exclusively, maybe people wouldn’t have dug into this like they did initially with the “hacked” excuse.

catmman on June 9, 2011 at 1:57 PM

Imagine the awesome if Nancy goes for expulsion of Anthony, but all the Repubs vote against.

Christien on June 9, 2011 at 2:00 PM

Seven Percent Solution on June 9, 2011 at 1:46 PM

He certainly is trying to keep himself from a premature ejection from Congress.

‘Cause he wants to stick to it.

Relax, don’t do it.

He don’t want to resign.

catmman on June 9, 2011 at 2:06 PM

I just read that silly Cal Thomas article about how Weiner’s downfall should be a time for sadness. Seems Thomas’ wife buys the addiction model of stupid behavior, or at leas the model helps buy stuff for the therapist wife.

I suppose he suffers from prevarication addiction, too?

clnurnberg on June 9, 2011 at 2:07 PM

The spectacle of dragging him kicking and screaming from his Congressional offices clinging to the door frame…

Ahhhhh…..

Roy Rogers on June 9, 2011 at 2:10 PM

The couple also suddenly yanked the condo off the block a few days ago, said a broker with Madeleine Realty, which was handling the sale.

They were asking $449,000 for the two-bedroom, 875-square-foot apartment on tree-lined Ascan Avenue.

Schadenfreude on June 9, 2011 at 2:13 PM

He will play the victim gambit soon. It was all those women’s fault for ‘friending’ him on Twitter.

“The way they dressed their tweets, they were just asking for it.”

Yoop on June 9, 2011 at 2:16 PM

Of course Huma wants Anthony to dig in. She didn’t bargain on being married to a disgraced nobody. You can’t be touted as a political “power couple” when half the couple is dishonored, discredited and without power. Where once marriage to Anthony was a means to bigger things, it’s now in danger of being a one-way ticket to Palookaville.

SukieTawdry on June 9, 2011 at 2:30 PM

reading between the lines, he’s holding out for a better offer. he won’t leave without a cushy ‘think tank’ job promised to him and his peeps.

pedestrian on June 9, 2011 at 2:35 PM

It has to be tough for Weiner to decide to resign, knowing that most Democrats, especially his own constituents, don’t want him to. As has been noted already, people like Rangel, Frank, and Conyers have been caught doing a lot worse stuff and they are all still there. Even Jefferson and Rostenkowski didn’t resign – their districts finally voted them out.

Weiner knows the rank and file doesn’t care about his perversions. This is why Democrats rarely have to resign when caught in a scandal. Their voters have no moral values. As long as their gravy keeps flowing from the train of other people’s money, they couldn’t care less what sort of wickedness their politicians get into.

So he’s following the Clinton model and going to tough it out. Why not, it worked for Billy.

I remember when Monica first broke, the panel on Fox News was predicting how long Billy would last, and mostly the predictions were in numbers of days.

slickwillie2001 on June 9, 2011 at 3:05 PM

My guess is that he will resign soon, but it’s better for conservatives if he hangs in there as long as possible.

mizflame98 on June 9, 2011 at 1:25 PM

Yep, in spite of all that has happened to democratics in the last while, when the ahole Jay Leno wants to joke about politicians, it’s Vitter he brings up. Not a word about the controlled-rent apartment magnate Rangel, or cash-in-the-freezer Jefferson, or Fat Al’s masseuse scandal, etc, etc.

Did you expect him to just shrink away?

slickwillie2001 on June 9, 2011 at 3:16 PM

As much as I think Weiner is a shmuck, I still feel sorry for him. He seems to have a nice wife that is pregnant with their first child. I don’t wish a mess like this on anyone, no matter how bonehead the move.

Maybe he feels so guilty that he wants to take a beating for a few days. You know those self loathing liberals. “I’m not worthy of where I am and what I have”.

saiga on June 9, 2011 at 3:20 PM

The Democrats wanted a biased stubborn hate monger, they got him.

Speakup on June 9, 2011 at 3:42 PM

I don’t think we want him out of there. He is in a leadership position and his face(among other things) is recognized all over the country. If he is gone, then they will elect another nutty Dem that hasn’t been caught…yet. Keep the pervert in office, it helps our chances.

I do think it would be great to hold off on these ethics panels until next summer so that they can have some results in say October 2012…

jeffn21 on June 9, 2011 at 4:11 PM

June 6, 2011 Rep. Weiner admits he has been lying for the last 10 days to America, breaking down into a crying little baby who got caught WAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

June 6, 1944 D-Day, 10,000 casualties (killed, wounded, missing, or captured)
United States–6,603, of which 2,499 fatal.
2,499 gave their lives so that Rep. Wiener (D-NY) could lie to everyone, dishonor himself, his office, his party, his state, his country.

Good job Wiener! you lying little POS!

About as much as he wants his fingernails pulled out I suspect.

Obama? This has nothing to do with Obama. They are in two different branches of the government, and have their offices in completely different buildings in DC! Are they even in the same party? I forget…

And let’s don’t forget, asking Obama about Weiner would be racist, too.

drunyan8315 on June 9, 2011 at 5:57 PM

You are sooooo close with this. This was a Trojan Horse pairing from the start, I mean, how photogenic would it have been, sometime down the road, to have the perfect Jew-married-to-Muslim couple.

This scandal broke, they scampered down to the Clinton war room and suddenly, she is pregnant, hee hee. Sure.

RushBaby on June 9, 2011 at 7:25 PM

They are trying to salvage *something* out of a situation that has been carefully cultivated. This guy needs to go, because he was being groomed for something insidious.
