A tale of two NY Congressmen



"Rep. Chris Lee (R-N.Y.) resigned from the House  effective immediately, an announcement that came just hours after a Web site reported that the married congressman had sent a shirtless image of himself to a woman he met on Craigslist.

'I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents,' Lee said in a statement announcing his resignation. 'I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness'."
The Washington Post, early February 2011.

"Any individual who donated to my campaign in 2010 or 2011 will be given back their donation in full.  I felt it was important to return the money because it belongs to my supporters."
Lee during March 2011.


U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner, D-NY, wipes his eye during a news conference in New York,  Monday, June 6, 2011. After days of denials, a choked-up New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner confessed Monday that he tweeted a bulging-underpants photo of himself to a young woman and admitted to "inappropriate" exchanges with six women before and after getting married.

Questions:

1) Will liberal editorial writers, commentators, bloggers, etc call for his resignation?

2) Will some of the same use the word, "courageous" to describe Wiener?

From blogher.com:

Despite having a lengthy history of being a womanizer since 2001 and audi recordings of Weiner publicly using sexual innuendos with a female reporter in the hallway of the Capitol last week, feminists and lady blogs have been slow in calling out the actions of Rep. Weiner. If they covered it, it was to make jokes about Weiner's last name or what guys should sext.

Why are avowed feminists allowing Weiner to call himself a "victim" and attempting to justify his lecherous behavior?”

Why, indeed.
