8. Anthony Weiner Resigns. Most of America probably had no idea who Anthony Weiner was and those who did only knew him as their congressman. All that changed in May when Weiner found himself the central figure in a Twitter scandal involving lewd photographs. He admitted the photos were of him and proceeded to be disgraced in front of all of America. But wait! Right in the middle of all of this his wife announced she was pregnant. I know! Anthony Weiner announced his resignation from congress on June 16, but his actions and that name will certainly live on in infamy. Or at least in this video with Bill Maher and Jane Lynch.
