Rep.Weiner was undone by his sexting, officially notified Speaker John Boehner and New York state officials in a resignation letter which is to be read on the House floor Tuesday, his last day in Congress.

This move can not come soon enough for many, who called for Weiner's resignation after he admitted tweeting explicit photos of himself to women. Weiner was elected in 1998.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to announce a special election in the next couple of weeks.
