    A porn star said on Wednesday that embattled Representative Anthony Weiner asked her to lie about their e-mail relationship in the hope that an Internet sex scandal surrounding him would die down. Ginger Lee, who is also a stripper, said her exchanges with the Democratic lawmaker from New York began with political discussions of abortion rights and healthcare but Weiner kept trying to sexualize the conversation. She said she never reciprocated his lewd messages. Weiner denied for more than a week that he sent a close-up photo of himself in boxer briefs to a woman in Seattle on May 28,...

    To their credit, most Democratic Party leaders have (finally) called for New York Rep. Anthony Weiner's resignation. But among liberal commentators and millions of other Americans, there is a great deal of flawed thinking about whether Weiner should resign.The two most common arguments offered against his resigning have been that (1) what Weiner did was not illegal and (2) it was not even as bad as an extramarital affair because he never met, let alone had physical contact with, any of the women to whom he sent naked and semi-naked photos of himself.The argument's entirely beside the point. The point...

    First came the crotch photos. Then came the lying and denial. Now, Rep. Anthony Weiner is seeking treatment for his misdeeds, leaving Washingtonians asking: treatment for what? Based on the New York Democrat’s behavior, which the congressman says includes sending lewd messages and images over the Internet to six women in the past three years, experts interviewed by POLITICO said he could suffer from an array of conditions that could merit treatment, including narcissism, obsessive-compulsive disorder or even some variety of sexual addiction. None of the possibilities comes with a silver-bullet treatment that delivers quick results — meaning that if...

    Rep. Anthony Weiner says he's taking a leave of absence to get treatment. Is he doing it to get help or just to save face?Rep. Anthony Weiner says he's taking a leave of absence, and he's getting treatment. You can add him to the long list of political sex scandals. So, does he really want the help or is it just a PR stunt? "I think this is a prank to make fun of my name. When you're named 'Weiner,' that happens a lot," said Weiner, just days before admitting to sending suggestive photos to women on the internet. The...

    Creepy congressman Anthony Weiner tweeted with a 17-year-old high school girl - but he insists he kept his pants on. "She was not targeted in any way and did not receive any inappropriate messages or photos or anything from the congressman," a source close to the Delaware girl told the Daily News. "If she had, her family would have filed charges." The News is not identifying the teenager. That revelation came as Weiner got his first shoutout of support from a prominent Democrat - Harlem heavyweight Rep. Charlie Rangel - since his sexting scandal erupted.

    He says there was nothing indecent going on. Do we have any reason to believe anything he says, though? I’m just spitballing here, but he may, just may, be only admitting to as much as he absolutely has to. And with Patterico’s prosecutorial brief, lying about not tweeting with any minor at all became untenable. Rep. Anthony Weiner sent private electronic messages to a 17-year-old Delaware girl but maintains there was nothing inappropriate in his communications with her. In a statement to Roll Call Friday evening, the New York Democrat’s spokeswoman Risa Heller said, “According to Congressman Weiner, his communications...

Two officers from the New Castle County Police Department arrived at the girl's home around 4:30 p.m. and asked to speak with the girl's mother about the daughter's contact with Weiner. Another officer appeared at the home a short time later. A FoxNews.com reporter was at the home when the police arrived.

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Former presidential candidate John Edwards wants a judge to delay a planned deposition in the privacy lawsuit filed by his mistress over a purported sex tape. Edwards, who was indicted last week on four counts of violating federal campaign finance laws and one count each of criminal conspiracy and making a false statement, said answering questions under oath in the civil suit would violate his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Rielle Hunter filed suit last year against former Edwards campaign aide Andrew Young, alleging that he took from her sensitive materials, including a reputed sex tape showing...

The New York Times published in its print editions Wednesday an article on the group that operated under the label #bornfreecrew. The group's leader was the same user who discovered the lewd photo that Weiner mistakenly sent publicly to 21-year-old...

    Now that the deviant Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-NY, has admitted he’s a serial liar who blames others for problems of his own making, it might be fair to ask just who the hell he thinks he is telling Americans who do not share his despicable fraudulent indecency that he does not trust them with freedom to make moral choices. More than a bit of projection going on here, Weiner, you sick wiener? Let every subversive attempt on your part to disarm your countrymen be met with the reminder that you are a defective, craven wretch who can’t—or more likely won’t—control...

    Rep. Anthony Weiner's Queens and Brooklyn constituents sounded off on his shocking sexting admissions Monday - with some calling for his political head. Several said they could never support Weiner after he admitted to exchanging sexually explicit messages and pictures with six women - and lying about it. "I think he should be barred out of politics. He's disgusting and a pervert," said Ronnie Homan, 50, of Borough Park, Brooklyn. Maya Goldstein, 44, of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, agreed, and said the congressman's teary TV breakdown shows he needs help.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A top Republican on Tuesday called on Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner to resign, saying Congress cannot afford to be distracted by the sexually charged photos and tweets he sent to women. House Republican Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia became the first top lawmaker to say that Weiner, an outspoken liberal who easily won a seventh two-year term in the House of Representatives last year, "should resign". "We've got a lot of serious challenges going on in this country and a lot of work for Congress to do. The last thing we need is to be immersed in...

    Re “Tearful Weiner Admits Sending Explicit Picture” (front page, June 7): As a constituent of Representative Anthony D. Weiner, I would hope that he takes the dignified course of action and steps down. With these pictures in the public forum and the possibility of more looming, his ability to defend my interests has diminished. Mr. Weiner has let down all of his constituents and no longer carries the reputation needed to actively debate on a national stage. He should leave the political arena.

    Rep. Anthony Weiner encouraged a porn star to lie about their on-line relationship and offered her the help of his public relations team, according to a report on Tuesday. Weiner sent emails to former X-rated performer Ginger Lee – to whom he’d previously acknowledged sending innocuous messages via Twitter – coaching her to deny that they had been communicating, reported TMZ, which obtained the messages and says the two had exchanged “scores of sexual emails over a long period of time.” “The key is to have a short, thought out statement that tackles the top line questions and then refer...
