Rep. McCarthy: Weiner Could Resign Soon

This post has been corrected.

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) is seeking treatment (presumably psychiatric) at an undisclosed location, and he says he won't make any major career decisions before discussing it with his wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. But a colleague in the New York delegation, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D), says his resignation could come soon. NY1 News reports:

Long Island Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy said today that she was hearing he might resign in "a couple of days."

She did not say where she got that information from.

CORRECTION: This post originally misidentified the congresswoman as Rep. Carolyn Maloney. We regret the error.
