Quickie: Weiner To Resign Today?

Let's see if I can be the first to report this: a friend told me this morning that her friend at CQ said that Weiner will resign today. It's 8:14 AM. We'll see who's first!

UPDATE: Looks like this isn't going to happen. See how treacherous insidery info can be? They're just guessing 'n' gossiping like everybody else.

Nothing on HuffPo or Talking Points Memo at 8:23 Pacific time. This would be the perfect news dump time to do it, because this news dump will be filled with old Sarah Palin e-mail dump.

Oh, nuts, really? I was kinda hoping that he'd hang in there, no pun intended.

TPM has a headline that says just the opposite.

The release of the Caribou Barbie emails has knocked him off the front page. He had better up his game if he wants to stay in the limelight.

(Correction to previous comment which I removed.)

We may have spoken too soon. Now on Saturday, Nancy Pelosi, Steve Israel and Debbie Wasserman Schultz are all asking for his resignation and he has announced he is seeking treatment and wants a leave of absence. TPM says Congress doesn't have a leave of absence option.

Sorry, congressman. Don't get your dick caught in the door on the way out.

Ooo he opted for the celebrity rehab angle. (And yeah, there is a dangle joke in there somewhere but I am too tired to make it.)
