Source: Weiner told New York colleague he doesn't plan to resign, citing polling and wife

Washington (CNN) - Rep. Anthony Weiner told a House Democratic colleague from New York Wednesday afternoon that he does not plan to resign. A Democratic source familiar with this conversation said Weiner told his colleague that his wife Huma Abedin wants him to stay in Congress, and cited polling data showing a majority of New York City voters want him to remain in office. The source described Weiner as "dug in."

The source spoke on the condition that the name of the Democratic New York lawmaker not be made public because it was a private conversation with Weiner.

    It seems that we americans have really lowered our standards. Its gotten so bad that we are willing to accept a politician who, I think, is no better than those online prediators. It could have been an underage person he was sending these photos to and we are willing accept someone like that to be in our Congress. I can see that sooner or later we will be accepting child molesters in our government because they look out for their districts. Maybe even murderers will be acccepted. We have to draw the line somewhere and I think it starts with what Weiner did and then lied about it. Soon the honest people will not be elected because they are no longer our accepted type of candidates because they are too good.

    I can see why we are experiencing all these diasters with our weather because we are being distracted with these types of behavior and God is trying to get us back on the right track before its too late.
