Representative Weiner has not actually submitted a resignation letter to Speaker John Boehner which is required for a formal resignation. So it appears that his resignation is not official as of Thursday evening. When the letter is submitted it could be read on the House floor.
Weiner and his wife were reported heading to the Hamptons. It appears the couple wants to get away for the weekend.
Once the seat is officially vacant, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo can call a special election in the district, which covers parts of Brooklyn and Queens, within 30 to 40 days.
