NEW YORK - US Representative Anthony Weiner vowed to remain in office on Thursday despite increasing pressure for him to resign for sending lewd pictures of himself to women over the Internet and then lying about it.

"I'm not," Weiner told the New York Post when asked if he was going to resign.

"I betrayed a lot of people and I know it. I'm trying to get back to work now and try to make amends to my constituents and of course to my family," he told the Post on the streets of Manhattan in video posted on the newspaper's website.

Should Weiner return to work in Washington, he would have a 6:30 p.m. vote on Monday on Capitol Hill, where a pack of news reporters would likely follow his every move.
