Liberal Rep Anthony Weiner (D-NY) to Resign from Congress

(FoxNews.com) - Scandal-scarred Rep. Anthony Weiner will resign from his House office on Thursday, sources tell Fox News, ending his once-promising political career after his sexually-charged online behavior was exposed.

Weiner, who has scheduled a press conference in New York at 2 p.m. ET, spoke with top leaders including Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, sources tell Fox News.

For three weeks now, Weiner has been embroiled in a scandal over lewd pictures and messages that he sent to at least six women on Twitter and Facebook over three years.
