RNC Chairman Calls on Weiner to Resign

Brendan Smialowski/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus became the first official to call on Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign in the wake of the widening sexting scandal.

Priebus is pushing for Democrats to go farther than House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's call for an Ethics Committee investigation.

"Congressman Weiner's actions and deception are unacceptable and he should resign. We do not need an investigation to know he lied and acted inappropriately, we need a resignation," said Priebus in a written statement. "Either Leader Pelosi and DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz believe members of Congress are held to a different set of standards or they believe these actions demand his resignation."
