Sources say Rep. Weiner will resign

WASHINGTON The married seven-term New York Democrat's resignation would end a once-promising career as a leading liberal voice.

Weiner became embroiled in a scandal over lewd photos and messages sent online to at least six women. During a tearful news conference recently he admitted he had told a series of lies to cover up his bad behavior.

Top Democrats had called for a House ethics probe to see if Weiner had broken any rules, including whether he may have abused his congressional office.
