The Weiner resignation

By Ken Feltman (originally published in Politico)

Others in addition to Anthony Weiner dragged things out. Weiner was pretty much a loner in the House. He should have realized that he had few friends who would go to bat for him. He didn’t, probably for the same self-centered, ego-driven reasons that got him in trouble in the first place.

The House Democratic leadership should have been ready to act quickly to find Weiner “alternative employment” that would be attractive enough to get Weiner out of the headlines. Failing that, the DNC, the White House or a few of the senior statesmen of the party could have ended the agony earlier. Were they trying and failing? Pursuit of that answer may keep some investigative reporters busy for months.
