Anthony Weiner announces his resignation from Congress | The Ticket - Yahoo! News



In a news conference marked by loud heckling, embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner announced he would resign from Congress effective immediately, bowing to days of public pressure from members of his own party.
Weiner apologized for the "embarrassment" he had brought to his colleagues, his constituents and "most importantly" his wife.
"I had hoped to be able to continue the work that my constituents elected me to do," Weiner said. "Unfortunately, the distraction that I myself have created has made that impossible. So today I'm announcing my resignation from Congress."
