Weiner resigns

Amid shouts from hecklers, embattled Congressman Anthony Weiner just announced his resignation at a Brooklyn senior center.

"I had hoped to be able to continue the work the citizens of my district had elected to do," he said. "Unfortunately, the distraction that I had created had made that impossible."

The once probable 2013 mayoral candidate represented New York's Ninth Congressional District, which includes portions of Queens and Brooklyn.
