Rep. McCarthy: Weiner could resign this week

One of Rep. Anthony Weiner's New York colleagues indicated Tuesday that the beleaguered Democrat might resign this week.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) said she's "hopeful" the Democrats can stay focused on their economic and healthcare agenda despite the distraction Weiner has posed in recent weeks. But she also hinted that the distraction might soon be gone.

"We're hearing that he might resign in a couple of days," McCarthy told reporters as she was walking into the Democrats' weekly caucus meeting in the Capitol.

McCarthy didn't cite the basis for her remark, and of the dozens of other Democrats filtering in and out of the caucus meeting, none gave any indication that Weiner's resignation could be imminent. Most declined to comment at all.

I get regular emails from Alan Grayson, despite the fact that he's been out of office for six months. No reason Weiner can't continue to weigh in on policy after leaving the House.
