If Anthony Weiner thought his life would be back to normal after he apologized for sending lewd pictures and sexually explicit messages to women who weren't his wife and he didn't know - man oh man did he get it wrong.

Congress will now investigate whether the veteran Congressman violated any House rules, the head of the Republican Party says Weiner should resign, and Senate Majority leader Harry Reid acknowledged that there's no way he can defend what Weiner did.

His desire to become Mayor of New York seems like a dead idea now. And the current Mayor says voters in Weiner's Brooklyn/Queens district will decide the Congressman's fate in the next election, a year from November.

But there are other factors at play that could affect Mr. Weiner long before then. The biggest is that New York is set to lose a couple of Congressional seats because of the last Census. Mr. Weiner's was already targeted as one of those seats - now it's hard to imagine peeps aren't looking even closer at it as a seat to be axed.

And Democrats - still stinging from the mid-term elections - might view Mr. Weiner as a big political liability in next year's election.

All of which means there's no way this controversy is going away for Congressman Weiner. And we're on the story, tonight at 11.

We're also following developments - and a family's angst and worry - in the disappearance of an Indiana University student - whose family lives in Scarsdale. Cops say they suspect foul play.

And we'll have the latest on the economy - in the form of a frank and disturbing assessment from Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke. He said today that while the recovery is continuing, it is "...both uneven across sectors and frustratingly slow from the perspective of millions of unemployed and underemployed workers."

And we're taking a closer look at those claims by some cars that they're delivering up 40-miles-per-gallon.

It sounds especially inviting with the price of gas so high. But are the claims true? Consumer Reports puts these cars to the test. And it turns out, like so many other things, you gotta read the fine print.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Meteorologist Lee Goldberg's AccuWeather forecast, and Rob Powers with the night's sports. I hope you can join Sade Baderinwa and me, tonight after Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
