WASHINGTON — House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is calling for an ethics committee investigation of Rep. Anthony Weiner.
Pelosi, the former speaker of the House, said Monday the committee should determine whether any official resources were used in Weiner's Twitter postings, and whether any House rules were violated.
Pelosi said, "I am deeply disappointed and saddened about this situation; for Anthony's wife, Huma, his family, his staff and his constituents.
She said she was calling for an Ethics Committee investigation to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred.
Weiner denied at a news conference in New York on Monday that he used any official resources.
