    Isn't this a bit of a double standard? Where is the Republican outrage?

    Why don't you start a focus group and force Vitter to step down, Ensign is already gone.

    Why aren't you asking for Clinton to be "expostfacto" impeached and removed from office?

    His behavior was worse than Vitter's and occurred during the same era.

    Ensign only left because he was going to be forced out. What he did was highly illegal, not just embarrassing.

    What Vitter did was also illegal in both parts of the country he was in. Only he was re-elected because Republicans have no shame. No one expects Republicans to be honest or actually work for the middle class. Sex scandals and hypocrisy are expected from the Republican Party. The Democrats have standards. Republicans only say they do, but not even them believe it.

    Party affiliation means little when it comes to being exceptionaly stupid.

    Larry Craig - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    On August 27, 2007, the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call revealed that Craig had been arrested for lewd conduct in the men's restroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on June 11, 2007, and entered a guilty plea to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct on August 8, 2007.[7] Despite firmly stating that he was not gay and never has been gay, Craig announced his intention to resign from the Senate at a news conference on September 1, 2007, but later decided to finish the remainder of his term.

    Weiner needs to stay. He represents. He's golden. A freaky looking weirdo with a sexting problem so out of control that he needs to go to rehab? He's a gift. The longer he stays the more he gives.

    Why aren't Harding and Grant resigning ?

    If we're discussing old news...might as well go way back.

    Visiting hooker is OK and means you can stay, like Vitter
    Alas, this is not the case when you show lewd pics on Twitter

    Because they did not lie to Obama? In case you missed the news recently, most of the people calling on Weiner to resign are Democrats.
