Democratic lawmakers took to the Sunday morning news shows conceding Weiner was in too much of a mess to effectively serve his constituents.
Weiner's position likely was not helped by nearly a dozen compromising shots that turned up on celebrity Web site TMZ.com.
Politico said the images had exercise equipment in the background, which TMZ indicated came from a Capitol Hill gym reserved for House members.
Weiner said Saturday he would check himself into a rehab facility to get himself on the right track.
