Video: Weiner Says He Won't Resign, Getting Back to Work in N.Y.

The New York Post caught up with Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) outside his lawyer's office in Midtown Manhattan today, and the congressman is standing by his decision not to resign. "I won't," Weiner said when asked if he'll leave Congress. Asked how he's feeling about his wife's pregnancy, Weiner offered no comment.

"Look, I've betrayed a lot of people, and I know it, and I'm trying to get back to work now and trying to make amends to my constituents and of course to my family of course," Weiner said. "I'm gonna go back to my community office, try to get some work done."
