Anthony Weiner insists he won’t resign from Congress

Amid growing calls for his resignation, Rep. Anthony Weiner insisted Thursday he has no plans to give up his seat in Congress.

Caught by a New York Post reporter leaving his attorney's office in Manhattan, the embattled New York Democrat insisted he would survive the sex scandal that appears to be putting his political career at risk.

"I'm going to get back to work as best I can," Weiner told the Post. "I betrayed a lot of people and I know it and I'm trying to get back to work now and try to make amends to my constituents, and, of course, to my family."

These were Weiner 's first public comments since he admitted Monday to lying about risqué online communications he'd had with women who were not his wife. Earlier Thursday, CNN's Dana Bash reported that Weiner had told a Democratic colleague he wouldn't quit, citing poll numbers and his wife's support.
