U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner resigned Thursday afternoon during a press conference in which he said the “distraction that I have created” interfered too much with his work.

Quote of note
"We have a small number of hooligans on the streets of Vancouver causing problems. It's absolutely disgraceful and shameful and by no means represents the city of Vancouver. ... We have had an extraordinary run in the playoff, great celebration. What's happened tonight is despicable." - Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, talking about the riots that took place after the Vancouver Canucks lost in the NHL finals to the Boston Bruins.
