Weiner tells friends he will resign: NY Times

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Representative Anthony Weiner has told friends he is stepping down after an Internet sex scandal, The New York Times reported on Thursday.

Fellow congressional Democrats have pressured him to quit the House of Representatives and spare the party further embarrassment after he admitted sending lewd photos of himself to a number of women.
