Weiner Told Porn Star to Lie, Offered Help

Somehow it just feels right to get our latest Weiner news from a sleazy celebrity scandal site like TMZ:

Weiner Told Porn Star to Lie, Offered PR Help

6/7/2011

Congressman Anthony Weiner instructed one of his Internet women how to lie about their relationship … and even offered PR help from his team, which could create major legal issues for him … TMZ has learned.

Weiner and former porn star Ginger Lee exchanged scores of sexual emails over a long period of time.  When the underwear scandal broke on May 28, Lee began receiving calls from the media, and Weiner was more than happy to help her control the situation … by lying.

On June 2, Weiner emailed Lee, "Do you need to talk to a professional PR type person to give u advice?  I can have someone on my team call. [Yeah, my team is doing great. Ugh]."

It’s unclear if Weiner’s PR team is from his Congressional staff.  If so, Weiner could run afoul of House Ethics Rules as well as the law.

Weiner put on a full court press, urging Lee to lie about their relationship.  On June 1, he emailed her:  "The key is to have a short, thought out statement that tackles the top line questions and then refer people back to it.  Have a couple of iterations of: ‘This is silly.  Like so many others, I follow Rep. Weiner on Twitter.  I don’t know him and have never met him. He briefly followed me and sent me a dm saying thank you for the follow.  That’s it.’"

Weiner suggested a nice touch — some good ol’ Southern charm: "And then maybe insert some y’alls in there."

On June 2, Weiner sent Lee a proposed statement she could give to the press:  "I have nothing to do with the situation involving Rep Weiner.  I follow his twitter feed.  And for a brief time he followed me.  Much has been made of the fact that I have posted about my admiration for Rep Weiner and his politics.  All I can say about that is that I’m a fan of his.  Rep. Weiner sent me one short direct message thanking me for following him.  I have never met Rep. Weiner and he has never sent me anything innappopriate (sic) …"

Weiner then asked Lee directly, "How’s it [the proposed statement] feel?"

Heck, if a sitting President can get away with inducing young women to lie for him, why not a Congressman?

Still, imagine being so arrogant you think you can tell a porn star how to fake it?

    The word ‘ethics’ and Weiner don’t belong together.
    But then again neither does the word ‘Rangel’ Franks, Boxer, Pelosi, Reid,…………….. something about that (D) that precedes.

    This is really no big surprise to me Democrats feel they are untouchable and for the most part they are. There are countless examples of Democrats getting away with lying to a Grand Jury to Murder so this is merely a resume enhancement for Congressman Weiner.

    Even if he’s found to have violated some House Etics Rules he still won’t resign. Like Charlie Rangel ther is no chance he’ll lose his election. These are the kind of legislators on the Democrat side of the isle we will continually have to deal with. What’s truly upsetting to me, the horrible example this sets for our children. Like Clinton this tells younger generations that “Hey it’s OKAY to be as morally corrupt as you want because once you become a Democrat Legislator nobody can touch you” has anyone heard the press coming out and asking for this man to step down? Obviously, I know the answer to my question but, one has to wonder have we gotten to a place in our society where nothing a person does can be wrong? I feel like we are coming to an end to the great experiment that was started in 1776.

    Hildabeast called Weiner’s wife “one of the family” well Weiner is definitely showing he is a “Clinton” and he has the “bonerfides” to prove it. He may find it a bit more difficult for a Rep to ride out the storm than for a President though. This canned message denial sent to GL sounds an awful like the one that was given by the first young woman who was crying “victim of a vicious hack that is ruining her life”. Is it going to come out that she was also instructed by Team Weiner? A what a tangled web we weave……..As for Weiner…It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving jerk, his bullying rhetoric in the house, I feel, was instrumental in subverting the process and giving the nudge over the wall for the implementation of Obama care. Please no tear shedding for this louse.

    If his slimeball looks didn’t tip you off, even his name tried to warn you: A. WEINER? –come on man!

    *How can Sarah Palin possibly live up to yet another high ethical hurdle set by the democrats?
    –A. Weiner.
    –Governor McGreevey
    –Elliot Spitzer
    –Ted Kennedy
    –KKK Robert Byrd
    –Jack Kennedy (Marilyn Monroe)
    –Bill “cigar” Clinton
    –Rev. Wright
    –Bill Ayers
    –Jessie “intern” Jackson
    –John Edwards

    Her bus changes lanes without signaling ‘ya know. . . .

    CNN probably cherry-picked the responses, but I saw their “person on the street” interviews in NYC asking about Weenie and they were all supportive of the guy.

    He must really “bring home the bacon” for his constituents.

  6. Right of the People says:

    If ever there was an aptly named person it’s the Wiener man.

    Mithrandir,

    I don’t think Sarah is capable of stooping low enough to even be just above the Dems.

    It’s not like this is just the standard PR playbook of the Democrats, donchy’all know.

    We could start going down the list and it’d be quicker to take note of who isn’t using the poll-tested machine speak as a way of saying nothing of substance and impugning the Truth.

    Hi2u Republican Establishment wieners – err wizards. Keep up the #winning!

    • tranquil.night says:

      By the way Ginger, don’t let some cranky vulture out there convince you that you’re a victim. You got your fame now hun, you’d be a victim to not get your proper dues from this! Stay out of the industry, grab a book deal, get into the respectable world of celebrity reality television, and milk the Weiner for all he’s worth! Do it for the Sisterhood!
