Cocksure Weiner MOCKED Larry Craig Sex Scandal

6/10/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rep. Anthony Weiner overconfidently sent emails -- to his porn star pal Ginger Lee, no less -- mocking former Senator Larry Craig's bathroom sex scandal ... just 2 weeks before Weinergate exploded.

In the May 12 email exchange -- obtained by TMZ -- Weiner warned Lee a "conservative blogger/troll" is trying to contact his female Twitter followers to do a story about them.

Lee responded by saying, "If you're sleeping with your Twitter followers, that would make for a way cooler headline than if you were trollin' for folks in the bathroom at an airport or something of that nature."

Weiner apparently thought the clear and direct shot at Craig's 2007 airport bathroom sex scandal was hysterical -- he responded with, "yeah, the joke's on me. some of my twitter followers hang out in airport bathrooms apparently. thats where trolls troll."

Weiner may not find the reference so funny anymore -- but he can't deny the irony.

The emails also reveal that although Weiner knew someone -- the "conservative blogger/troll" -- was tracking his social networking ... he still sent the undies pic that brought the glass house crashing in on him.

joey _ I love TMZ 'til ya piss me off!    

I guess he doesn't think of himself as a "Troll" Guess what Weiner, HA HA! Also, I have a longer German name and your name is supposed to be pronounced "WHINER" which seems appropriate. And even if you were jewish, which I don't know or care, it would be pronounced Whiner""
I have a friend, who has the exact same name as you do and he pronounces it the correct way, except he has had to change his phone number because of you. Maybe you are so caught up in & obsessed with your OWN wiener, you just can't help yourself!

Impeach this bastard already...
Weiner's already proved he can lie without a flintch, even try to teach it to others. If this is what NY produces, NO THANKS! Rest of the US has enough problems than to let this A-Hole pull a 'Charlie Sheen' Help Me Tour.

Americans seem to be the only people on the planet that don't know how selfish and arrogant their culture is. These men are the leaders of your nation, and they have no honesty, no integrity, and no loyalties to their families, their governments or their countrymen. Either you are a really bad judge of character, or you are turning a blind eye to the signals. It seems as though individuals attach themselves to a political party for life, and then anything goes. They will defend that party no matter what, and no matter who takes a lead role. Republicans are the lowest form of the American species, because the majority of them are Christians who have been taught that the Republican Party is God's Party, therefore, they will always support that party, even if Satan himself was in it. All those big universities, and you can't even carve out a decent and civilized culture. Maybe cut down on the bragging and get to work.

Weiner isn't the president of the US. Years ago Clinton also told a bunch of lies. At that time he was the president of the US but didn't have the guts to step down. I guess Weiner keeps holding onto his seat.
Perhaps "kitnplayn" is right by saying "Either you are a really bad judge of character, or you are turning a blind eye to the signals."
I also agree with "WhatTheHellDoesTMZStandFor?". I am also sick of hearing about Weiner and I don't care if he has a single, double or triple c*ck in his undies. He won't be the last pervert politician.

Sure, Italy's Prime Minister has his bunga bunga parties and statuatory rape of a minor (17 year-old Ruby Heartbreaker) and France has Dominque Strauss-Kahn and an incredibly chauvinistic political culture. These are the civilized countries we should look to, these places with such ass-backwards notions of female empowerment that women of both of those countries there have finally begun to see the light and are demanding some changes. Sorry, but the Weiner pics and creepy-ness was not the issue. It's the narcissism and cynicism behind the cover-up and, for this reader, just the plain gross stupidity of the whole affair. I get fired for being stupid on the job. Why shouldn't a member of the United States Congress? He's an idiot. New York can do better.

If his wife stays with this loser than she is as dumb as a rock...sadly she has political ambitions too and they will go down the drain if she stays with the hot dog man.But then again,some people will sell their own soul to the devil to get ahead in life.

Kitnplayn - please stop bashing all of America and what you see to be it's culture. I enjoy your comments & points, but notice that a lot of them complain about America per se. I am guessing you are from England, possibly, based on the fact that your father doesn't use the "C" word (previous post). Whenever I am in England, I notice that word seems to be very common. I, personally, do not fit into the box here as you view it.
Please remember we have very little control over our politicians, even when we vote. Also, please remember that this is the one of the most Sarcastic Hollywood websites and sometimes the comments are flippant, other times introspective. I do enjoy your comments and sometimes agree with certain points. It's the "America" thing that gets old.

The only person who should be pissed at this guy is his wife. He didn't promise to be sexually faithful to his constituents just his wife. I personally couldn't care less about the (legal) sexual predilictions of my political representatives. His personal life is no more my business than the kid's who serves me my morning coffee at Timmy's. I really don't see why people are so upset over this.

Fact is, men seem to get the big head when they linger too long.
