Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) admits to sending a lewd Twitter photo of himself to a woman and then lying about it during a press conference at the Sheraton Hotel on 7th Avenue on June 6, 2011 in New York City.

It started with a tweet and has turned into a 24-hour national story. Representing New York’s 9th Congressional district, Anthony Weiner has been engulfed by this political scandal. From lewd photos tweeted to strangers and now the news of his wife’s pregnancy, the story just keeps growing. But do New Yorkers, his constituents, actually care? Is this the end of his political career or just a tweet in the road?
