|THE GENTLE MAN IS WRONG!|
Now on to the obvious- should he resign? FUCK NO! The idiocy of this whole fiasco aside, Congressman Weiner is actually one of the very few in our government who actually seems to give a shit about the people.(See the 9/11first responders bill) Which is why Nancy Pelosi, Virginia's own Tim Kaine, and the rest of the pathetic Democratic party who have no moral responsibility to the American people, want him to resign. He's the most vocal member of congress and he says a lot of things most Democrats won't say mostly likely due to their own financial interests of course. There's no incentive for them to fight so they don't. then they come out with the guise of "oh the big bad Republicans did blah blah blah blah", it's absurd. When someone actually challenges what's going on in congress, he or she becomes a liability for the entire party because the donors don't want fighting Democrats, they want complacent whiny assholes. The same could be said about the Republican party of course but they are too far gone from the morals the original GOP stood for.
Back to the issue at hand, what he did was pathetic, immoral, and stupid(double check your tweets next time) , but it isn't that big of a deal. It's a problem for him and his wife to sort out privately as with all matters like this. Our representatives aren't gods, they are human like the rest of us. Sex, religion, and politics should NEVER be mingled together(see Iran). On the other hand if someone is purposely giving our money away to big corporations while raising your average Joe's taxes and cutting funding to his kids schools, that should be looked into, but for some reason, it never is. I want to see Weiner resign from the Democratic party and place his ties somewhere else because these frauds are the lowest of the low. Sie ficken.
