In the midst of ‘Weiner-gate’ congressman's wife reveals she is pregnant
Schwartz becomes first Democratic House colleague to call for Congressman’s resignation
The New York Times article states that “three people with knowledge of the situation” confirmed that the couple were expecting their first child. They also said Abedin is in the “early states of pregnancy”.
On Wednesday Pennsylvania congresswoman Allyson Schwartz became the first Democratic House colleague of Weiner to call for his resignation.
Schwartz issued a statement which read “Having the respect of your constituents is fundamental for a member of Congress....In light of Anthony Weiner’s offensive behavior online, he should resign.”
Also according to CBS the White House passed on an opportunity to defend him. Jay Carney, press secretary with the White House said “We have no comment.”
The New York congressman has admitted that he exchanged explicit photography and messages through Twitter, Facebook, email and by phone with “about” six women over the last few years.
According to CBS one lawmaker who spoke to the Congressman on Wednesday said he believes that he will ride out this media frenzy. However it is now also being speculated that there are more troubling revelations ahead.
Since the scandal emerged Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Sen. Patty Murray, told reporters that Weiner’s troubles “of course” complicate the party’s efforts ahead of in the 2012 mayoral elections. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, (D-Calif.) said, “I just view it with great surprise and dismay. That’s all I can say.”
The Democratic leader in the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, called for an ethics committee investigation to see whether Weiner’s actions violated any House rules. The former Democratic Party chairman, Tim Kaine, has urged Weiner to quit. Kaine is running for the Senate in Virginia.
Although Weiner has not made any public comments since his press conference on Monday he has made apologetic phone calls. He contacted Bill Clinton who officiated at Weiner and Abedin’s wedding a year ago.
