House Recognizes Weiner’s Resignation

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.

Even after Weiner announced his resignation June 16, the scandal lingered as paperwork mistakes and other factors delayed closure for the chamber.
