GOP Chairman Presses Anew for Weiner's Resignation

Wednesday, 08 Jun 2011 08:28 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the Republican Party is exhorting House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi to force embattled Congressman Anthony Weiner to resign.

Reince Priebus (Rynce PRE'-bus) tells NBC's "Today" show that both Pelosi and Democratic Party chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz have an obligation to force Weiner out in the wake of revelations the New York Democrat engaged in sexually provocative conduct, including sending a crotch shot photo from his Twitter account.

Priebus says he's against a House ethics investigation of Weiner, who has admitted wrongdoing. Priebus says such a probe would be, in his words, "a slow, drip, drip, drip type of story, and in a couple of weeks, my guess is he's going to have to resign because it's going to be such a distraction."
