WASHINGTON (AP) A Pennsylvania congresswoman became the first Democratic House colleague to call for Rep.

At a news conference on Monday, he did not deny that there might be an x rated photo of himself in existence or that he had engaged in phone sex. He also admitted he could not be sure none of the women with whom he flirted was underage.

may be other, more troubling revelations ahead.
In the interim, few pass up the chance to signal to Weiner that he should step down.
The Democratic National Committee has adamantly refused to comment, while a spokesman in Wasserman Schultz's congressional office has said only that she supports Pelosi's call for an ethics investigation.
If so, that would make his case a sexless sex scandal but one that illustrates the ability of social media sites to spread controversy almost instantaneously across the country.
Weiner has adamantly denied ever meeting any of the women and has said he never had a physical relationship with any of them.
