Weiner: I'll Cooperate With Ethics Investigation

Monday, 06 Jun 2011 08:50 PM

WASHINGTON — Scandal-ridden Congressman Anthony Weiner says he'll fully cooperate with a House ethics investigation his fellow Democrats have demanded into whether he broke any rules when he sent lewd photos of himself over the Internet.

The statement came Monday less than an hour after top House Democrats issued chilly calls for an ethics committee probe into whether Weiner used government resources or broke House rules when he sent what he called "inappropriate" photos and messages to six women before and after he got married.

The New York congressman earlier in the day confessed to the scandal and apologized, but refused to resign. He said he welcomes and will fully cooperate with an ethics committee investigation.

Weiner married Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, last July.
