Democrats Wrestle With How To End Weiner Scandal

WASHINGTON (AP) - The House has approved a two-week leave of absence for Congressman Anthony Weiner, and there are many Democrats who would like that absence to be a permanent one.

Democratic House members meet today behind closed doors for the first time since the scandal erupted. They could try to take away a committee assignment in hopes of persuading Weiner to resign.

President Barack Obama's blunt words could help Democrats trying to oust Weiner.

Obama said Weiner's actions were "highly inappropriate." He said if he were in Weiner's shoes, he would resign.
