Anthony Weiner Heckled At Press Conference: Hecklers Shout Obscenities (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In announcing that he will resign from Congress on Thursday, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) was heckled as he addressed the media at a press conference in his New York district.

"I'm here again today to apologize for the mistakes I have made and the embarrassment I have caused," said the embattled lawmaker, who had become embroiled in an online sexual controversy. "Today I am announcing my resignation from Congress."

Cheers from some in attendance could be heard as Weiner announced he was stepping down from his post. My Fox NY relays what happened next as the New York Democrat continued making his remarks:

One man continued to heckle Weiner, making it hard to hear his speech. The man yelled "bye-bye pervert" and asked him about the size of his penis.

Huma Abedin, Weiner's wife and a close adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, did not appear alongside her husband at the press conference.
