Anthony Weiner stripper penpal Ginger Lee calls for his resignation

By Nancy Cordes Topics Domestic Issues ,Congress .54 Comments Have Your Say Email Story Send to a Friend66 SharesTell Your FriendsTweet ThisTweet ThisMoreShare It. Del.icio.usFacebookStumbleuponNewsvineYahoo bookmarksMixxDiggRedditGoogle BookmarksTwitterLinkedInRep. Anthony Weiner is running out of allies. Even his stripper penpal is calling for his resignation.

Ginger Lee, a former porn actress who currently works as a "feature dancer" in nightclubs, said today that Weiner tried several times to engage her in sexual communication but that she never took the bait.

Lee held a press conference in New York City, accompanied by her lawyer Gloria Allred, who said Lee had "gone into hiding" after the Weiner scandal broke to avoid having to lie to protect the New York Democrat. The two said Weiner first contacted Lee this March, after she wrote flattering things about him on her blog.

Weiner is under intense pressure to quit after he admitted inappropriate online relationships with several women over the past three years. Many Democratic colleagues are hoping he resigns now that his wife, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has returned from an overseas trip.

Allred estimated that Weiner and Lee exchanged about 100 messages via email and Twitter from March until two weeks ago. She said the few that were sexual in nature were all sent by Weiner.

"I did not 'sext' him...any time he took it in that direction, I changed the subject," Lee said, reading from a prepared statement. The slight, young blond woman said that when she started interacting with Weiner "it was about politics."

According to Allred, Lee admired Weiner's positions on two issues of great importance to her: Planned Parenthood and health care. She said Weiner contacted Lee after she posted flattering descriptions of him on her blog.

Allred said Weiner repeatedly tried to change the direction and tone of their conversation to a more suggestive one.

Among the messages Weiner allegedly sent:

"I have wardrobe demands too. I need to highlight my package."

"Alright, my package and I are not going to beg."

"You aren't giving my package due credit."

Allred said Weiner never sent any racy photos to Lee, and she sent none to him. The two communicated by phone only once: when Weiner gave Lee advice about how to handle the media after he accidentally tweeted a photo of his crotch in gray underwear to tens of thousands of twitter followers.

As one of the roughly 200 people Weiner followed on Twitter, Lee quickly became a target of reporters' questions. "He asked me to lie" when the news first broke, Lee said. "I knew I couldn't lie but I didn't want to be the one who threw him under the bus," she added, so she put out a three sentence statement and refused to answer any questions. Allred noted that Lee has not sold her story and would cooperate with a House ethics investigation if asked.

Lee said she believes Weiner should resign because he lied to the media and the public for a week before admitting the underwear photo was of him.

"If he told the truth, it might not have turned into this," she argued.

I guess we’ve reached critical mass when the former pornstar and current stripper call for his resignation. This is one of the best stories to ever hit a slimy Democrat. This arrogant, pompous jackass is being utterly humiliated.

What Clinton did was much worse, but they defended him the whole way. Wonder how they justify booting Weiner.

He doesn’t have 1200 FBI files on important people in Washington.

Absolutely!

And of course impeached POTUS BJ Clinton is the “most popular” Democrat politician currently

Weenie would be nuts to quit - he’s on a path to stardom in the Dem party.

In 5 yrs, he and John Edwards will be major Dem players.

The Weiner has withdrawn for two weeks to enter rehab for his sexual perversions.

Rumor has it that he found an organization in Texas offering professional services.

The problem is; Huma is being advised by Hillary Clinton.

She’ll be told to “stand by her man” and look the other way so she can advance her career.

The Porn Star/Stripper demonstrates more integrity than the elected representative. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

I was prepared to overlook my own preconceived notions about the credibility of a porn actress/stripper/dancer/Jezebel and consider her statements more credible than the rat weiner, until she hired Gloria Allred. Now it is a tie.

Cartoon has an important detail wrong.

According to published photo's, Weiner is mostly hairless!

He sort of looks like that freaky, hairless cat.

Muslims have infiltrated everywhere now, and this appears to be by appointment now.....And there doesn't seem to be any venting of those who get appointed by those in various offices.... Or they are indeed appointed with a purpose for a far more sinister agenda than we can imagine. I shudder to think.....

He probably shaves it off. Metro girly men have been doing that for a time. I’ll take a man with hair any day of the week over the femmy look.

Somebody at work told me that Anthony Weiner has decided to use his new name recognition to run for the Democrat Presidential nomination. He has selected Attorney General William Holder as his running mate. They will be printing up the Weiner-Holder bumper stickers right away.

It is some kinda record or honor to have the occupant the highest office of the land, and an occupant of the arguably lowest office both call for one’s resignation. Paging the Guinness Book!

Easy! Weiner is just one of 435 congressman. Clinton was the president. The DemocRATS aren't going to lose Weiner's district, but if he stays they may lose lots of blue dogs.

This ugly time in our history got its start when Weiner stumbled across the
term "sexual congress" in an old depression era issue of "The New Yorker".
