New Details Emerge on Weiner's Conversations With Fellow Democrats

June 7, 2011

Embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., reeling from the fallout over his confession that he had improper contact with numerous women on the Internet, spent the last day reaching out to his fellow Democrats, The New York Times is reporting.

Citing a senior congressional official, Weiner upset House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., by waiting until only 15 minutes before his Monday press conference to tell Pelosi that he had lied last week in insisting that his Twitter account had been hacked. Weiner also told Pelosi on the phone call that he would not be resigning and would not entertain a discussion on the matter. 

Weiner also called numerous House Democrats after his press conference, and those who spoke with Weiner said he sounded remorseful.

 

“He was embarrassed,” said Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y., told the Times. “He is trying to pick up the pieces and move on.”
