Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and democratic leaders will meet on Thursday to discuss plans on how to increase pressure on penis-tweeting liar Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY). They say they want Weiner to resign.

The Politico reported:
House Democratic leaders could begin the process of taking away Rep. Anthony Weiner’s committee assignments today as part of a final push to force him from office, even as a minor backlash against calls for his resignation has emerged from one corner of the caucus.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her leadership team plan to meet at noon Thursday to confer about plans to increase pressure on the scandal-scarred New York Democrat to give up his seat. Democratic sources familiar with earlier discussions say they may choose to call for a caucus vote on the matter next week.
“That is under active consideration,” said a source familiar with those discussions.
In addition, party leaders who have not yet called for Weiner’s ouster may be pressured to join that chorus.
The renewed effort comes even as some of Weiner’s closest friends in the House are criticizing Democratic colleagues for piling on.
