Weiner

Told Porn Star to Lie,

Offered PR Help

6/7/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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?"

Oh, yay, another 'I'm a proud whore' story. Ladies, being a whore is not something to be proud of!! You are at the bottom of the female barrel.

OooooNooo OooooNooo

Is it not interesting that Weiner the Cheater -- married Hillary Clinton's Chief of Staff? Was she attracted to a cheater because her old boss is married to a serial cheater?

I am not sure what all the fuss is about. So what he sent pics of himself to some chick. How many people do that on a daily basis, married or not? I think what is sad is that these women told on him. He was just flirting and having fun. Get over it.

"Y'alls?" No "You betcha's?" Weiner really doesn't understand this country.

And thats the truth And thats the truth

Well Mr. Weiner if you get booted out of your job, there is always porn in your future.

If this loser was a republican they would be calling for resignation but because he's a democrat it's OK for him to do this and stay in office. Sorry, but this double standard has got to go. The only reason these women gave a crap is because of his power, it sure wasn't his looks....get over yourself weiner you ain't no player!

Wiener is a pig and he should leave. He has completely disrespected the office of the House. How arrogant to refuse to leave..

What is with this guy, "How's it feel?" sounds like something he says a lot to women. This guy sounds like a big weiner.

How many socks are stuffed in there for emphasis?

How many women has he shown his sock puppet to?

At least Ginger Lee is a hottie. Some of these politicians get involved with the most hideous skanks. (Arnold, Clinton, etc.) If you're going to screw up your career with extra marital shenna****ns (physical or photos & e-mails), at least do it with someone who makes your pants bulge!

There seem to be plenty of holes from stripper heels in his story.

I gotta say I'm a little surprised this stuff is coming out. I thought these stupid women were all Democrat cultists because they liked his politics and followed him on Twitter and they would protect him because they're brainwashed by the mainstream media and are in the cult. Apparently some of these were just power-mongering whores. So now we got confirmation on the college coed from Seattle (who is a cultist trying to protect him), the porn star and some nurse/single mom. I hope the high school girls that he hit on comes forward, there's probably a few underage girls that he was going after, since he is an indiscriminant creep.

One of them is a lying, cheating American, and the other is a lying, disloyal American. And neither of them seems to care much about the people who get hurt by their lying, cheating, backstabbing. The arrogance and selfishness of the American culture is enough to make you gag.

After looking at his face, I'm not sure that was his stuff in the underware, I think it may have been his nose. First time i was his face I though he was eating a potato.
