U.S. Rep. Tim Walz, D-Minn. on Tuesday donated the equivalent of all his campaign contributions from Rep. Anthony Weiner - the New York Democrat who recently admitted to sending graphic photos and text messages to young women - to a local charity.
Walz did not comment publicly on his decision.
He donated $3,000 to a local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans, a St. Louis, Mo.-based nonprofit that provides advocacy and services for disabled veterans and their families.
Federal campaign-finance records show that Weiner donated $1,000 to Walz's campaign on March 27, 2007, and $2,000 on Nov. 16, 2009.
Walz is the second U.S. representative to take such an action. U.S. Rep. Betty Sutton, D-Ohio, made a statement Tuesday saying she will send Weiner's donations to local charities.
In a Monday press conference, Weiner admitted to sending inappropriate image and text messages to multiple women, after previously denying reports that he used Twitter to send an illicit photo to a young woman. Both Democrat and Republican lawmakers have called for Weiner's resignation, but he has so far refused, saying his conduct was legal.
