Suspicious package at Rep. Weiner’s office declared not dangerous

U.S. Capitol Police responded to Rep. Anthony Weiner’s office in the Rayburn House Office Building Thursday afternoon for a report of a suspicious package.

The package was declared safe at 1:30 p.m. Someone had left a white plastic bag in front of his office, room 2104, that contained a CD and a CD case. Police believed it was suspicious because it was unattended, officials said.

Weiner, a Democrat from New York, decided he would resign in the wake of a Twitter scandal in which he inadvertently published a lewd picture of himself, sources told The Post. He initially denied sending the message, then admitted that he intended to send it to a woman.

He also admitted to innapropriate messages with other women.
