Sen. Reid says he can't defend Weiner
WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid says he cannot defend embattled New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, who has admitted to sexually charged online relationships with several women and lying about his misdeeds.
Reid told reporters on Tuesday that he wished there were some way he could defend the New York congressman, but he can't. It was the latest sign of the cool response Weiner is getting from fellow Democrats embarrassed by his online sex scandal.
Asked what he would do if Weiner called him for advice, Reid said he'd tell him to call somebody else.
