Alan Colmes' Fiery Defense of Weiner Leads to Spark-Flying, On-Air Debate

Media

"...it’s a shame that a personal situation like this should result in him having to leave his job."

Earlier today, sparks were a-flying on FOX News' America's Newsroom when Alan Colmes took to defending Rep. Anthony Weiner. The liberal commentator unleashed his thoughts during a debate with conservative writer and commentator Steve Hayes.

During the fiery discussion, Colmes said that, while he doesn't condone Weiner's behavior, it's a shame that the embattled congressman may be forced to step down. He said:

"Unless we find out that he broke the law … then that’s a different story. Or unless he thinks that something else might come out where he broke the law, then I think it’s a shame that a personal situation like this should result in him having to leave his job...this has nothing to do with whether or not he’s a good congressman. I want someone in office, not to be my moral guide, but to vote the way I want them to vote."

Watch the debate unfold below:
