Congress Returns to Work; Weiner Goes to Treatment

WASHINGTON (AP) - As members of Congress get back to work today in Washington, one seat will be empty. New York Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner (WEE'-nur) is starting his temporary leave of absence. He's in treatment at an undisclosed location for an undisclosed disorder.

Last week, he acknowledged exchanging messages and photos -- some of them explicit -- with several women online. Meanwhile, the No. 2 House Democrat spoke of Weiner's "bizarre and unacceptable behavior" in sending the inappropriate pictures of himself. Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland said it would be "extraordinarily difficult" for Weiner to be effective in Congress.
