NEW YORK (WCCO) — New York Rep. Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal has cost him his job. The seven-term Democrat announced he was stepping down today.

Tune in at 5:35 p.m. Thursday to hear Michele Tafoya’s interview with conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart. He’s in town for the fourth annual RightOnline Conference Friday and Saturday at the Minneapolis Hilton

Last month, a lewd photo of Weiner appeared on his Twitter account. He first said his account was hacked. But after more pictures and allegations were made, Weiner admitted he had inappropriate conversations with at least six women online.

Weiner said he will get treatment, but he’s not saying where he’ll go to get help. His wife, Huma Abedin, is pregnant right now with the couple’s first child. She was not with him for the announcement.

    Obama hosted a picnic for members of Congress on the White House Lawn. Things got a bit uncomfortable when Congressman Weiner entered the 3-legged race without a partner…

      Be nice to the poor fellow … he’s a Democrat … that means he has problems with counting to large numbers … like over 10 with his shoes on … or over 20 with his …

  2. Tee-hee-hee says:

    And I thought we would never get him down…

  3. Hank says:

    Have him join Schwarzeneger and the Rebulican Senator that visited the Mpls/St.Paul Airport bathroom a few years back. It’s a bipartisan thing.

  4. Just sayin' says:

    The sad part is that it won’t hurt him very much financially…..His pension for life, and all that goes with it will take care of him until he dies. Just does not seem right does it??

    Oh! I can hardly wait to hear Michelle Tafoya interview this creep (Breitbart).
    Not really—Tafoya is one of the reasons I quit listening to 830. Overall a poor interviewer– stumbles over her words, doesn’t listen, basically comes across as some entitled crybaby. Maybe it’s all an act. If so, please go back to the sidelines where you’re only allowed 3-4 mindless “cut-ins” per game. You’re actually quite good at the mindless stuff.

      Agreed. Tafoya is a blathering diva. Breitbart should be in prison.
