Weiner Will Resign

The New York Times reports Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is telling friends he will resign in the wake of a "sexting" scandal.

"The news comes as Democratic leaders prepared to hold a meeting on Thursday to discuss whether to strip the 46-year-old Congressman of his committee assignments, a blow which would severely damage his effectiveness."

NBC News confirms that Weiner called Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and DCCC Chair Rep. Steve Israel last night to inform them he had decided to resign.
