Oh, for goodness sake! This man!
Police have reportedly been in contact with a 17-year-old Delaware girl this weekend, after she allegedly started a Twitter relationship with Anthony Weiner when the shamed politician spoke at her High School.
Although police were concerned about the nature of their interaction, especially given the Congressman's history, but according to both the girl and her mother, nothing in the messages was deemed inappropriate!
According to New Castle County Police authorities:
"Detectives have conducted an interview with the teen and she has made no disclosure of criminal activity nor inappropriate contact by the Congressman."
However, this seems to be the last straw for Democratic leaders, and Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Steve Israel and Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz have all released statements urging Weiner to resign.
Pelosi says in a statement:
"I urge Congressman Weiner to seek that help without the pressures of being a Member of Congress.”
What an absolute mess!
We're glad that police have determined that nothing shady was going on, but this whole development has certainly raised some serious flags about Weiner's judgment-calls - as if they weren't already called into question, as it is!
Ugh. We're nervous to hear what else could possibly come out!
What do U think?? Should Weiner resign??
