WASHINGTON (AP) — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says the behavior of Anthony Weiner is “reprehensible” and “disrespectful of women.”

The California Democrat lashed out at Weiner, a candidate for mayor of New York City and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, saying their behavior is stunning and that they “don’t have a clue.” Both men were formerly Democratic members of the House.

Weiner, who is married, apologized this week after fresh allegations he exchanged lewd images and sexually explicit messages with another woman. Filner has been besieged by allegations of sexual harassment.

Pelosi suggests both men may need therapy and says they should “do it in private.” But she says it’s up to Weiner to decide if he should leave the mayor’s race.
