Weiner Takes Short Leave Of Absence To Enter Workshop For Improvement

Just hours after three leading Democrats called on him to resign, Rep. Anthony Weiner announced he will take a leave of absence from Congress and enter a treatment program.

Saturday began with a major blow to Weiner’s chances for survival, as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Rep. Steve Israel, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, all issued statements urging Weiner to leave Congress.

Shortly after, Weiner’s office announced that the embattled New York Democrat had decided to enter a treatment program, saying he “needs this time to get healthy and make the best possible decision” about his future.

Weiner will enter short workshop for personal improvement.
