WOODBURY - City Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) yesterday admitted to sharing explicit messages and photos with several women over the past three years, and now top congressional Democrats are calling for an ethics probe.
The Weiner controversy started after a photo of a man in his underpants briefly appeared on his Twitter feed. After days of denial, the congressman held a press conference yesterday to apologize for his internet indiscretions, which he says involved six different women.
Weiner says he has no plans to resign, saying he doesn't feel he broke any laws. He says his wife, Huma, is supporting him.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats urged the House ethics committee to launch an investigation into whether Weiner broke any rules.Rep. Weiner admits he sent lewd picture; won't quit
