Calling it a "sordid affair," Debbie Wasserman Schultz calls for Anthony Weiner to resign

In what political observers have suggested could be the death knell for the embattled congressman's career, the chairwoman of the DNC is calling for Anthony Weiner to step down.

"It is with great disappointment that I call on Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign," she said in a statement released by the Democratic National Committee. "The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner's continued service in Congress is untenable. This sordid affair has become an unacceptable distraction for Representative Weiner, his family, his constituents and the House --and for the good of all, he should step aside and address those things that should be most important -- his and his family's well-being."
