Anthony Weiner [D-NY] confessed to tweeting a photo of himself, well he took a picture of himself in his underwear, a close up shot of himself. Nancy Pelosi [D-CA] has called for an ethics investigation.
Anthony Weiner may be subject to a charge of behaving in a manner unbecoming a member of the House of Representatives. The rule he may have violated says "[a] Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall conduct himself at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House." Article 1 Section 5 Clause 2 of the Constitution says "Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member" (emphasis added).
I like Anthony Weiner and wish I had a Congressperson who voted the way he votes. Nonetheless, Anthony Weiner is, in regards to his tweet, an idiot.
Gentlemen, it is time to zip it up.
