The House is back in session today---without Congressman Anthony Weiner. Weiner announced over the weekend he's taking time off to get help.

Weiner's scandal gets worse -- as more inappropriate relationships and racy photos surface.

Despite the calls for Weiner to quit-- he says he's not going to. Weiner says he's just taking a leave of absence to get professional help.   Weiner's been caught sending explicit photos to women-- and also tweeting to a 17 year old girl. Weiner however is adamant that there was nothing indecent about his tweets to the teen.

TMZ.COM releases new photos--- and Representative Charlie Rangel weighs in on Weiner's hiatus "they had to get Anthony Weiner off the front pages.

Democrats and Republicans think he needs to go. Many saying this whole fiasco is a total distraction. A majority of New Yorkers however want Weiner to stay, but protestors outside his office insist that Weiner set a bad example.

No word on what time of treatment or where Weiner will be.
