At a press conference in Louisa, Virginia, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor called on the scandal-embroiled Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, to resign his position as a U.S. Congressman.
âCongressman Weiner and his constituents will make that decision,â Cantor said during a Louisa County Chamber of Commerce luncheon. âI certainly don’t condone his activity and I think he should resign.â
Cantor also said Weinerâs #Weinergate scandal is a distraction from serious issues.
âWe’ve got a lot of serious challenges going on in this country and a lot of work for Congress to do,â Cantor said. âThe last thing we need is to be immersed in discussion about Congressman Weiner and his Twitter activities.”
A Cantor aide confirmed the remarks to The Daily Caller.
