NEW YORK (AP) -- One of Anthony Weiner's former congressional colleagues says he should drop out of the race for mayor of New York because of the latest sexting scandal to engulf him. Two other New York Democrats on Capitol Hill are also criticizing Weiner.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler said Wednesday: "I think he should pull out of the race. I think he needs serious psychiatric help."

Weiner says he is not quitting and his indiscretions are behind him.

Rep. Joseph Crowley said New Yorkers are "tired of the drama" surrounding Weiner. And Rep. Charles Rangel said he believes the voters will put an end to Weiner's ambitions.

Nadler hasn't endorsed any mayoral candidate. Crowley is backing City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. Rangel is supporting former City Comptroller Bill Thompson.
