Reports: Anthony Weiner to Resign

The other shoe appears ready to drop.

Media outlets have begun to report that embattled Congressman Anthony Weiner will resign. The New York Times reported earlier this morning that Weiner made the decision after he spoke with his wife, Huma Abedin, after she returned to the country after a trip with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. WCBS is reporting that Weiner will announce his resignation at a press conference somewhere in the metropolitan area this afternoon.

Weinergate has clearly become a distraction to Democrats who have their eyes squarely set on the 2012 elections. Weiner's resignation will obviously come as a relief to those on Capitol Hill who clearly want to put this sad spectacle behind them.

Stay tuned...
