Anthony Weiner is going to resign, according to the Wall Street Journal.
This would never have happened if Democratic Party leadership hadn’t exerted some pretty strong pressure as reported in various news outlets the last few days. Who knows how much behind-the-scenes arm-twisting has taken place.
