Congressional colleagues call for Weiner to resign

WOODBURY - There is increasing pressure for Queens Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign today after news that his wife is pregnant.

His wife, Huma Abedin, is in the United Emirites with her boss, Hillary Clinton. Abedin is a top aide to the secretary of state.

Reports say the couple recently told close family and friends that they are expecting a child.

Meanwhile, new X-rated pictures of the Congressman have surfaced online.

Long Islanders "Opie & Anthony" reportedly obtained the picture from conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart on their Sirius radio show yesterday.

At least eight Congressional colleagues are now publicly calling for Weiner to resign.
