Pelosi, Wasserman Schultz, Israel tell Weiner he should resign

New York (CNN) - Three weighty Democratic voices - including Nancy Pelosi - on Saturday called for the resignation of embattled U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, who has been under fire after admitting to inappropriate communications with women online.

The House Minority Leader, and the chairmen of the Democratic National Committee and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in separate statements called for Weiner to step down.

    It is time for Nancy Pelosi to retire and play full-time grandma. She could not lead even when Democrats were in majority. What Weiner did was disgusting for sure. As a predominantly Christian country, let us show some compassion in this matter. Let him, his family and his faith and of course his constituency decide what he should do. When did the Democratic party turn so sanctimonious and moralistic. Let us stop discussing this matter right now and let the Congress get on with more pressing matters such as the unemployment in the country.

    He's just a typical Dem. If Clinton got to stay on and be worshiped, Weiner should be worshiped too.

    YES, Rep. Weiner needs to resign now. He has shown his display of disregard for his own position, his wife's, his marriage and his future kid. Do not expect anyone to work under his lead, and especially women or any woman's daughter. Get him OUT ! OUT! OUT !
