Anthony Weiner Checks Into Rehab

Congressman Anthony Weiner checks into rehab as top democrats want him to resign.
"Congressman Weiner departed this morning to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person," according to a statment released by his office late Saturday afternoon.
"In light of that, he will request 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."
The move - which Weiner resisted in the early days of the scandal - comes as Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority leader, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair, each said the lawmaker needs to go.
"It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign," said Congresswoman Schultz of Florida, calling the scandal a "sordid affair."
"The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner's continued service in Congress is untenable," she said.
