WASHINGTON — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday told off former colleagues Anthony Weiner and Bob Filner, criticizing the behavior of the two Democrats caught in sex scandals and suggesting both get therapy.

“The conduct of some of these people that we are talking about here is reprehensible,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said at a news conference. “It is so disrespectful of women. And what's really stunning about it is, they don't even realize it. They don't have a clue. ... If they need therapy, do it in private.”

The comments by Pelosi are the harshest words yet by the California Democrat. She has been hesitant to comment about Filner, San Diego's mayor and a former member of Congress, since he apologized this month for his behavior after being accused of sexual harassment.
