Kicking Rep. Anthony Weiner while he’s down, today several Democrats joined the chorus of Republicans calling for the New York congressman to resign.

Former DNC chair Tim Kaine was the first to publicly come out against Weiner, followed by Rep. Allyson Schwartz, Rep. Mike Michaud, Sen. Mark Pryor, Rep. Mike Ross, Rep. Niki Tsongas, Rep. Joe Donnelly and former Governor Ed Rendell.

During his teary confession-filled press conference on Monday, Weiner said he does not plan to leave the job.

Adding a new twist to the saga, multiple sources told NBC News that Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, is expecting the couple’s first child. His office had “no comment.”

Though, his office did release a statement addressing a new X-rated penis shot reportedly of the congressman, which was posted online today by Sirius XM hosts of the Opie & Anthony Show.

Weiner’s spokesman told NBC News, "As Representative Weiner said on Monday when he took responsibility for his actions, he has sent explicit photos. To reiterate, he has never met any of these women or had physical contact with them. As he said, he deeply regrets the pain he has caused. With the full support of his wife, he is working on righting these wrongs with his family and his colleagues."
