The chairman of the Republican party says Rep. Anthony Weiner should resign after admitting he sent a lewd photo of himself on Twitter to a woman and then lied about it repeatedly.

Reince Priebus says in a statement that either House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Democratic chairwoman Debbie Wasserman
Schultz believe that members of Congress are held to a different standard, or they believe the congressman's actions demand his  departure from the House.

Weiner vowed on Monday he would not resign his seat, and apologized repeatedly at a news conference for his actions. Pelosi issued a statement afterwards calling for the House ethics committee to investigate.
