With Weiner determined to stay put, a possible ethics probe comes next

Washington (CNN) - Despite mounting pressure from Democratic colleagues to resign over the sexting scandal that dominated the headlines this week, embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner insists he's staying in office.

Among other things, the New York congressman can point to a Marist College poll released Thursday showing that a majority of registered voters in his district - 56% - don't believe he should step down. Only 33% believe he should go.

Foley: 'Uniqueness' of internet trapped him, Weiner

Washington (CNN) - Disgraced former Republican Rep. Mark Foley suggested Thursday that embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner might be better served if he left Congress.

Foley resigned from Congress in 2006 after sexually explicit emails to teenage congressional pages he sent were exposed. In his first nationally televised interview since the scandal, the former Florida congressman lent advice to Weiner, who admitted engaging in inappropriate online activity with women outside his marriage after initially denying the accusations.
