NEW YORK (AP) — Some of New York Rep. Anthony Weiner's constituents say he should resign now over his sexting scandal, and they are planning a rally outside his district office.

Weiner said Saturday that instead of resigning he was seeking professional treatment and asking for a leave of absence from Congress.

The announcement came shortly after several Democratic Party leaders demanded he quit.

Weiner had acknowledged Friday that he had exchanged online messages with a 17-year-old girl in Delaware. He says nothing improper had passed between the two of them.

Weiner's Ninth Congressional District spans parts of Brooklyn and Queens. A civic group and other residents of the district plan to rally Sunday afternoon to demand Weiner's resignation.
