Even as the photos kept surfacing, Rep. Anthony Weiner was determined to keep his job. That resolve eroded as he found himself in a slow-motion fall that ended Thursday with his resignation from Congress.
Just to be clear, it’s not the lewd Tweets that were the problem. We are all sinners, after all. It’s the fact that he lied about it when confronted. Indeed, he even stooped to the despicable tactic of smearing a famous conservative in an attempt to weasel his way out of the inevitable consequences of his actions. One thing’s for sure: Congress doesn’t need a slimeball like Weiner in its ranks.
