House Democrats to Meet about Weiner Case

Thursday, 16 June 2011 08:06 AM EDT

WASHINGTON  — House Democratic leaders are planning to meet Thursday to consider the next step in handling the scandal embroiling Rep. Anthony Weiner.

Weiner is resisting calls to resign. He has acknowledged sending sexually explicit messages and suggestive photos of himself to various women and then lying about it. The New York congressman has taken a two-week leave from the House and is reported to be in treatment at an undisclosed location.

A House aide described the leadership meeting set for Thursday on condition of anonymity because officials had not authorized a public discussion of their plans.

House Democratic leaders could decide to strip Weiner of his committee assignments and could take other actions to punish him.
