Rep. Weiner Tells NY Post Reporter That He Still Has No Plans Of Resigning
An intrepid NY Post reporter recently caught up with embattled congressional member Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) and asked if he was still planning on remaining in office after numerous calls for his resignation have recently emerged. A still-contrite but steady Weiner reaffirmed his intentions to stay in office until the end of his term. When asked about recent reports of his wife’s pregnancy, Weiner declined to offer any comment.
Writing for the NY Post Kevin Fasick and Clemente Lisi report:
Weiner also said he planned to get back to work after spending Wednesday holed up in his Forest Hills home.
“I’m going to get back to work as best I can,” he said.
“I betrayed a lot of people and I know it and I’m trying to get back to work now and try to make amends to my constituents, and of course to my family of course,” he added. “I’m going to go back to my community office and try to get some work done.”
Weiner reiterated what he told the media earlier this week.
“As I said when I spoke at the press conference on Monday that I exchanged inappropriate things with people and, I think that I’ve now got to deal with those consequences,” he added.
“I was completely honest on Monday after I hadn’t been for a while,” Weiner said outside his lawyer’s office in Midtown.
