Seven-term congressman Anthony Weiner is resigning because of the scandal over lewd photos he has admitted to sending to several women online.

Weiner apparently came to his decision after speaking with his pregnant wife Huma Abedin, a State Department adviser who just returned from a trip overseas.

This segment aired on June 16, 2011.
