Pelosi Condemns Weiner as 'Reprehensible,' 'Disrespectful'

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call(WASHINGTON) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi condemned her former Democratic colleagues, New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, who have both come under a firestorm of criticism for their behavior towards women.

Weiner, who resigned from his congressional seat in 2011 under pressure from Pelosi after he inadvertently posted graphic pictures on Twitter, is back in the headlines this week after new revelations of sexting were disclosed. Filner, who decided to run for mayor of San Diego rather than seek reelection to the House in 2012, is facing accusations of sexual harassment by multiple women.

“The conduct of some of these people that we're talking about here is reprehensible,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said of her former House Democratic colleagues. “It is so disrespectful of women, and what's really stunning about it is they don't even realize it. You know, they don't have a clue.”

“If they're clueless, get a clue,” she continued. “If they need therapy, do it in private.”

Asked whether Weiner should drop out of the race, Pelosi said “That's up to the people of New York.”
