This guy here is becoming more of a joke by the second.
Sexting horndog Rep. Anthony Weiner yesterday defied demands from top Democratic leaders to resign — instead ditching Congress on a leave of absence to get “professional treatment.”
“Congressman Weiner takes the views of his colleagues very seriously and has determined that he needs this time to get healthy and make the best decision possible for himself, his family and his constituents,” his spokeswoman said.
Weiner, who sources said had been getting outpatient treatment all week in the city, flew out of town for around-the-clock care on a day of fast-moving developments in the scandal:
* A senior House Democratic aide told The Post the calls for his resignation — including one from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — were a “coordinated effort that was kicked off once Weiner decided to seek treatment.”
* It was revealed that one of Weiner’s two female high-school admirers posted a sexually charged tweet alongside numerous messages professing her love for the married lawmaker.
* Weiner began the day with an embarrassing photo op — unloading an armload of dirty laundry on a Queens dry-cleaner while flanked by a small army of media.
“I’ve made some serious mistakes here. I have to redeem myself, and I’m going to try to get back to work,” he said.
Weiner’s spokeswoman refused to say where he was headed for rehab or the specific type of treatment, though sources said it was likely for sex addiction.
SMH at him thinking he can keep working at this point. And at rehab for sexting.
