WATCH: Palin Weighs In On Weiner Resignation

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - During an appearance on Fox Business Network on Thursday night, Sarah Palin weighed in on news of embattled Congressman Anthony Weiner's (D-N.Y.) decision to resign after becoming embroiled in an online sexual scandal.

"From henceforth after his personal indiscretions were disclosed, he was going to be rendered impotent basically in Congress and he wasn't going to be effective," said the former Alaska governor when asked if she thought Weiner could have fulfilled his political responsibilities despite the controversy. "Obviously it was the right thing to do. Day late dollar short though, I think he should have resigned when all of this came to light."

Palin said that the constituents of Weiner's New York district "deserve better."

During the segment, Palin also addressed the recent release of thousands of emails she sent and received during her tenure as governor of Alaska. The documents were disclosed in response to requests made by media organizations and individuals under the state public records law during the 2008 presidential election.

"It certainly shows the priorities in what was once a respected cornerstone of our democracy, our mainstream media and we see that priorities are quite skewed," said Palin of the approach news organizations took to covering her emails. "I hope folks who read the emails learned a lot about energy independence, fish and game conservation, protecting second amendment rights, why I opposed Obama's stimulus package." >>>CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO
