Porn Star Ginger Lee Talks About Rep. Anthony Weiner: ‘He Asked Me To Lie’

A dancer and sometime porn star, Ginger Lee, spoke out for the first time today about her Twitter relationship with Rep. Anthony Weiner, telling a news conference that Weiner “should resign” and that Weiner instructed her on how to handle the media, saying “he asked me to lie.” Lee, who has lupus, says the disease flared up as she dealt with the stress of media attention to her role in the scandal, and under pressure she says, to do “what he told me to do.”

Lee says her relationship via Twitter and in some hundred or so emails began about politics, and she insists she rebuffed the congressman’s efforts to turn the conversation to sex. Lee says on June 2, as the scandal was blowing up, “he called me and told me what to say and do,” including keeping quiet and avoiding the press in the hopes the story “would calm down.” Lee said “I knew I couldn’t lie for him, but I didn’t want to be the one to kick him under the bus.”

Everything changed, she says, when she saw Weiner lie on television. She now believes he must resign.
