Rep. Anthony Weiners Weinergate scandal continues to present us with new bits of information, even after the Congressman held a rather lengthy press conference yesterday afternoon admitting guilt and expressing regret. Yesterday, Weiner shared that he had sent various flirtatious and/or revealing pictures and messages to six women over the course of three years, some while he was married. He insisted that he did not use government resources nor his time at work to send these.
Now, TMZ has revealed that Weiner advised one of those women to lie about the nature of their online interactions. Weiner also offered the woman, former porn star Ginger Lee, help from his own PR team a move which may land him in even deeper trouble.
This is what Weiner emailed Ginger Lee on June Ist:
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 dont know him and have never met him. He briefly followed me and sent me a dm saying thank you for the follow. Thats it.
And on June 2nd, he wrote:
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].
In addition, he presented yet another possible statement for Ginger Lee to reiterate 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 Im 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) ...
NOT GUILTY! ! ! ! ! !
That’s a great cartoon.
The 2011 version of junk mail. To think I have to walk across the street to get junk mail and she gets it on her iphone.
Weiner’s behavior, especially his lying, only amounts to resume padding as far as Democrat voters are concerned. None of this other stuff - - honesty, integrity, character, etc. - - has ever mattered to Democrat voters. Weiner won’t resign because he knows he’s quite safe in his Democrat-rich district. Those people couldn’t care less about anything but themselves. He’ll be re-elected in a landslide.
Clinton = 1/1 Presidency
Weinie = 1/435 Congressman
Big difference . . I predict he will be burnt beyond recognition and tossed into the Insinkerator
Looks like the Weiner decided to become the pickle instead.
Not the kosher variety either.
I wonder who pays for his PR firm. Does anyone know?
How does A Weiner have text with a porn star? Ginger Lee
