NY Congressman Anthony Weiner and former porn star Ginger Lee were longtime sexting pals. But according to TMZ, when the twitter photo scandal broke, Weiner kindly offered her help with media onslaught. What a guy!
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].”
Weiner told Lee to lie about their relationship. On June 1, he emailed: “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.’”
On June 2, Weiner sent her the perfect
lie, er statement that read: “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 inappropriate.”
The level of the man’s deceit is amazing. One wonders how he had time or energy for his day job, the small task of serving the state of New York.
Anyone else think this Weiner is toasted?
