House leader Boehner says Weiner should resign
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Tuesday he thought Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner, who has been snared in an Internet sex scandal, should resign.
Boehner simply said "yes" when asked by reporters if he thought Weiner should step down. The House granted Weiner, who has admitted to sending lewd photos and messages to half a dozen women, a leave of absence for treatment. The lawmaker has refused calls by Democrats and Republicans to resign.
