Scandal-scarred Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY9) is clinging to his perch in Congress despite new efforts to pry him away and a pair of developments that might inspire others in his position to give up the fight:

A newly released X-rated photo that Weiner purportedly took of himself turned up on the Internet.

And his wife of less than a year, Huma Abedin, is pregnant, and his former girlfriend, Kristen Powers says he lied to her, too.

The baby on the way complicated an already ominous forecast for the 46-year-old congressman, who admitted on Monday that he had Tweeted sexually charged photos and messages to six women he did not know, then lied about it to his wife, his family and his constituents. Throughout the week, Weiner has refused to resign.

His fellow Democrats from the White House on down have left little doubt they want him to reconsider — and fast.

Join us on The Morning Zone today at 8:07AM MDT, as renown psychologist, Dr. Margaret Cochran analyzes this scandal and what makes  Anthony Weiner and those like him do what they do...and why they self-destruct.
