Democrats wrestle with how to end Weiner scandal

WASHINGTON (AP) - With Rep. Anthony Weiner resisting calls to quit and President Barack Obama saying he'd resign if he were in Weiner's shoes, House Democrats are wrestling with what to do next.
Democrats are to meet today for the first time since the New York congressman admitted to sexually charged online relationships with several women and lying about it. Frustration among Democrats is increasing as the embarrassing scandal moves into its third week.
Democrats could try to oust the seven-term congressman from the House Democratic caucus or try to strip him of his committee assignment.
Obama's blunt words could help Democrats trying to oust Weiner.
Obama said Weiner's actions were "highly inappropriate."
