WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) – Delaware’s Democratic representative, John Carney, says he thinks Rep. Anthony Weiner should resign from Congress.
Carney spokesman James Allen said Saturday that the first-term congressman believes Weiner has lost his credibility and should therefore step down. He says Carney believes that Weiner’s conduct is inappropriate, violates the public’s trust and undermines his ability to do his job.
One of Carney’s constituents is a 17-year-old girl who had online communication with Weiner, though Weiner has said the contact was neither explicit nor indecent (see related story).
Police spoke with the girl on Friday and have closed their investigation.
