We would be remiss if we didn't at least make some note of the recent developments in Weinergate, as the whole Congressman Anthony Weiner Twitter scandal has come to be known.

Since the first infamous photo was accidentally posted to Weiner's public Twitter account by, we now know, Weiner himself, five other women have come forward to say that they have had online relationships of a sexual nature with the outspoken Queens and Brooklyn congressman over the past few years.

Likewise, even more revealing photos of the congressman in various states of undress have been leaked to the public. And it was even learned that the congressman sent private messages to an underage girl, although they weren't suggestive in nature.

The House of Representatives is now conducting an ethics investigation into the matter to see if Weiner actually broke the law.

While Weiner steadfastly refuses to resign from office, at least so far, the chorus of high-ranking Democrats – including the president himself and House leader Nancy Pelosi - calling on Weiner to leave office is getting louder.

Let's face it, when the top man in the White House is suggesting that you need to step down, it's kind of hard to justify staying in office.

It's a stunning fall for Weiner, who this week took a leave of absence from Congress to “get help,” whatever that means. He has stated that he will wait for his wife, who is rumored to be pregnant, to return from her travels with her boss Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before he makes a decision.

On a tangent, if Pol Position got caught in some sort of embarrassing public sex scandal, we're not sure if we would want our significant other spending 24 hours a day halfway around the world with Clinton, who is no stranger to men who stray.

On the one hand, she stood by Bill after the whole Monica Lewinsky scandal, so that might give us some comfort about the advice and counsel she would give.

On the other hand, she might still be bitter about the whole sordid affair, and tell Weiner's wife that she should get out while she's still young because men never change. We would probably lose a lot of sleep over that.

Anyway, that's all pure speculation, but what do you think? Should Weiner resign? Let us know by taking our poll.

Should Congressman Anthony Weiner resign from office because of his indiscretions on Twitter?
