The House has finally put to rest the sex scandal that dogged former Rep. Anthony Weiner and House Democrats for weeks.
Just after noon Thursday, the New York Democrat’s resignation letter was read on the floor, a largely unnoticed formality in what became a protracted process.
Weiner’s online dalliances with at least six women dominated the headlines for three weeks and distracted Democrats, who had planned to use the time to hammer Republicans over their efforts to reform Medicare.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
