Rep. Anthony Weiner resigns

Rep. Anthony Weiner resigned from the House of Representatives today amid heckling from those gathered at his press conference to hear his resignation speech. In his official resignation announcement, Anthony Weiner thanked his wife for standing by him through everything, even though she wasn’t actually present.

“Today I announce my resignation, so my colleagues can get back to work and my neighbors choose a new representative,” Anthony Weiner said at the press conference. Weiner was interrupted several times by hecklers in the crowd throwing out lewd comments toward the former representative. 

A man identified as The Howard Stern Show‘s Benjy Bronk by TMZ.com screamed out: “Are you more than 7 inches?” Another heckler can be hear shouting: “Yeah, get out of here pervert?” As Weiner leaves, you can hear yet another ask him if he will “maintain your hot physique?” Check out the video below of Anthony Weiner being heckled as he announces his official resignation.
