Ex-Porn Star Ginger Lee Speaks Out, Says Rep. Weiner Asked Her To Lie

Actress Says She Would Cooperate With House Ethics Probe If Asked

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — On the day his wife returned from overseas, a porn star came forward to say Congressman Anthony Weiner asked her to lie about their steamy exchanges.

She is young and blond — a photo opposite of Rep. Weiner’s dark-haired wife, Huma Abedin. And while he was trying to reunite with his newly pregnant mate, Ginger Lee was making it just so much more difficult, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer.

“He asked me to lie about our communication,” Lee said.

PHOTOS: Women In Weiner Sext Scandal

“Ginger Lee” is apparently this young woman’s stage name. She has appeared in adult films but prefers to be labeled a “feature dancer,” and by her account, she and the congressman exchanged steamy e-mails, some of which were read out loud Wednesday by her lawyer, Gloria Allred.

“I have wardrobe demands too. I need to highlight my package,”’ Weiner wrote Lee.

Lee said that she did not initiate sexual talk with Weiner, but that he talked about himself in a suggestive way. Lee said that she did not talk about sex online with Weiner.

“Anytime that he would take our communications in a sexual direction, I did not reciprocate,” she said.

“We did communicate on a fairly regular basis,” Lee said. “However, I did not sext Anthony Weiner. I did not send photos to him or receive any from him.”

But the problem for the congressman is that after a stream of his sordid self portraits became public he called Lee and asked her to keep their e-mail exchanges to herself.

“On June 2 he called me and told me what to say and to deal with the mounting pressure from the press and how to handle it,” Lee said.

This revelation emerged as a new Public Policy poll was released, showing 60 percent of Americans wanting the randy lothario to resign. Only 8 percent have a favorable opinion of the once-popular liberal Democratic mouthpiece, and 70 percent have an unfavorable view.

The beleaguered congressman also reportedly offered her professional public relations assistance — somebody from his “team.”

“He told me if neither of us said anything over the weekend the story would calm down and die,” Lee said.

Boy was the congressman wrong about that. There were more pictures and calls from numerous Democrats, including President Barack Obama, for him to resign from Congress.

So far, Weiner has resisted that, instead waiting until his wife got home Wednesday from a weeklong trip to the Middle East with her boss, Hillary Clinton, to discuss it.

Lee could help push him out of Congress.

“She stands ready to cooperate,” Allred said.

Allred said Lee will give House ethics probers any information they want about her relationship with Weiner.

“If called to testify, she will testify truthfully and she will provide all of her communication to and from the congressman to the committee,” Allred said.

Lee said she thinks Weiner should resign for lying to public about the sexting scandal, saying “It might have never turned into this if he told the truth.”

Probers would want to see if the e-mails or the phone call used congressional resources. The congressman’s spokeswoman offered no information about his conversations with his wife Wednesday, or whether the two are even together yet.

And there was no new information about whether he will resign.

    Why is this stupid count having a press conference and putting herself in the news? Why does she have count face Allred with her? What’s this all about? This stupid ex porn star count should get back in the business if she wants some attention. We all know Weiner is a pervert, we don’t need a count face ex porn star to tell us. GO AWAY ALLRED AND LEE PORN LOSER.

  8. Donna Jung says:

    Why did she have a news conference? Who asked her? I don’t know why all these women are talking to the press. What’s in it for them?

    1. Tommy says:

      Destruction of a MAN,Donna. Honeslty. I mean, Look at rthese women. One is a porn star, one is divorced and the other is a black jack dealer. All of them have had some bad experiences in life and likley blame a man. If they get anything else out of this, it’s just an extra. Otherwise, they are happy to help destroy him. It’s the truth. You can see in by the way they talk and what they are doing which is totally not needed. Shameful and disgusting, all three of them as well as the low life lawyer. And I mean love life.

      1. Please Resign Whiner!! says:

        He destroyed himself, no one did this to him. He is a Fake Family Man like so many other politicians. They hide behind their fake beliefs and do whatever they want, luckily many get caught doing it. He is Trash with a Sex Problem and an Anger Management Problem. When he went nuts during debate on the Zadroga Bill he signed his own Death Warrant.

    1. Vinnie from Queens says:

      You mean “Conscience.” Conscious or consciousness is a waking state, or the state or condition of being awake. Conscience is the act of having ethical or moral thoughts, etc.

  25. Gregg says:

    I wish this Weiner would resign already ! It just keeps getting worse. Advice from a porn star he was communicating with ? End this sick circus already !

  26. Cheating nothing new! says:

    My favorite was when she said she was doing the press conference to “get back to working and living a normal life”….REALLY? Having a press conference and splashing your trashy self all over the world is going to help you get back to your normal life? To each their own regarding sexting, cheating, etc…but how stupid can she be??

    Want a normal life? GO BACK TO WORK AND LIVE IT…..

  27. Tim says:

    A news conference with a former Porn star offering advice on what she thinks weiner should do standing beside an opportunstic low life attorney ! Sometimes, I am almost happy my parents are deceased so they don’t have to live through this garbage while the country they loved so much falls apart in ruins. A porn star ! Maybe one of the big banks will hire her as an Ethics officer. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit.

    1. Caty says:

      I’m with you……I can’t believe the extent of the downfall of this country in the past 10 years even. It’s such a miserable, unhappy place where any satisfaction is typically built on another’s misery. I don’t know where the honesty is, and the compassion for another human being. It makes me sad.

  28. Michael H. says:

    “Lee said she thinks Weiner should resign for lying to public about the sexting scandal, saying ”It might have never turned into this if he told the truth.””

    A porn star with more brains than a sitting Congressperson. Amazing, isn’t it?

  29. Tito says:

    And why has she retained an attorney for this?

    1. Frank D says:

      To be her agent and get every dime she can out of this. Duh!

      Not sure who’s sleazier. Her or the slimeball that crawled out from under a rock and went to law school.

    2. Vinnie from Queens says:

      Hold on, Her attorney is Gloria Allred, isn’t she the female version of Charles Schumer, who never met a TV camera she didn’t like?

  30. Miguel says:

    They’re not just woman, they’re Goddesses. Two words Mr. Oscar Mayer “Duh, winning”!

  31. Vik says:

    WHY THE HELL IS THIS WOMAN HOLDING A PRESS CONFERENCE??!!! Doesn’t excuse Weiner but what is she thinking? That people will drop on the floor and praise her and pat her on the back?! Give me a break!

    1. Steve says:

      It’s called “instant publicity” my friend!
