Reports have begun circulating Thursday morning that Rep. Anthony Weiner, who’s been the center of attention over a lewd tweeted photo, will announce his resignation this afternoon.
Earlier this week President Obama suggested that Weiner should resign. The New York congressman was said to be waiting to make a decision until his wife returned from traveling abroad with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
News of Weiner’s resignation has begun spreading on Twitter, though reports suggest he’ll formally announce his resignation this afternoon.
UPDATE: Weiner will announce his resignation at 2 p.m. ET, according The New York Times, in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, at the same place he announced his 1992 run for city council.
