Why the overwhelming pressure on Anthony Weiner to resign when a former POTUS set a precedent for him? I don't remember Bill Clinton getting this much pressure to resign after having an extra-marital affair IN THE WHITE HOUSE. Don't get me wrong though, I'm of the opinion that Anthony Weiner is a liar and agree with his resignation.
I believe all politicians (Democrats or Republican, there's no difference when it comes to responsibilities) should make the American people their highest priority. If they can't, they shouldn't be allowed to represent the American people.
