Rep. Anthony Weiner has resigned from his seat in Congress after former porn star Ginger Lee held a news conference stating that he asked her to lie about their online communications.
Weiner's pregnant wife, Huma Abedin, returned home from traveling overseas with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to hear the news that pressure had been put on Weiner from fellow Democrats, including President Obama, to resign.
The New York Times first reported,that the Democrat had informed friends that he would be stepping down from Congress.
Before the revelation of the scandal, the forty-six year old Weiner was considered a possible front-runner to succeed New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2013.
