Reid: Can’t Defend Weiner

Anthony Weiner of New York, who has confessed to having online sexual relationships with a half dozen women over the past several years, is getting no sympathy from Democratic Party leaders.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called for a House ethics investigation into "whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred."  A Las Vegas woman has come forward to say she believed Weiner was using an office phone line during at least one of their conversations.

The latest to give a cold shoulder to the embattled lawmaker was Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada.

Asked by reporters this afternoon whether he thought Weiner should resign,  Reid said:  "I know Congressman Weiner. I wish there were some way I could defend him but I can’t."

A few minutes later, questioners circled back to the troubled lawmaker.

QUESTION: You didn’t say whether you thought Congressman Weiner should resign.

REID: I’m not here to defend Weiner.

QUESTION: What do you think he should do?

REID: That’s all I’m gonna say.

QUESTION: What advice would you give him if he asked you?

REID: Call somebody else.
