George Stephanopoulos discusses Anthony Weiner on 'The View'Anthony Weiner resigned his position as U.S. Representative Thursday in the wake of a scandal that involved his sending lewd photos of himself to women via Twitter. His behavior shocked many, including 'Good Morning America' co-host George Stephanopoulos, who spoke on the subject Thursday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC).

"I was, you know, as shocked as anybody else just by the compulsion that he demonstrated," said Stephanopoulos. "You heard the first story, said 'Well, this might be true.' But then he came out and talked to every single reporter in the country and said it's not true, I'm the victim here. That's what surprised me."

Just hours after Weiner's resignation, Sherri Sherpherd wondered if he could recover from the scandal. Stephanopoulos noted that Weiner has spent his whole working life in politics and he is a smart guy. But he made the point that before he did anything else, Weiner would have to get himself straightened out and settle things with his family.
