Weinergate - The Saga Continues: Weiner coaches porn star to lie

Anthony Weiner seems to have another fantasy. This one isn't about online hotties, instead this one is about him being able to continue as a Congressman. Yesterday when Weiner said he would not resign, I said he was kidding himself. So long as Weiner remains in office, the salacious details about what he did online will remain media gold. All the seedy details of his online action will come dripping out like Chinese Water Torture.

Consider this story about the porn star Ginger Lee the first of many drips to come.
TMZ: 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.'" [MORE]
This is just the first of many more to come. Radar Online already has another gal talking today. For now, Weiner's constituents may still be supportive, but with more and more stories coming out, I doubt that will last for long. Weiner's fellow Democrats are already talking ethics probe.

If I were Weiner, I would resign today. I would then take a very long vacation in some third world country until this story has had time to die down. He can use that time to figure out how to make a living in the private sector under an economy he helped to devastate.

Let's let Wiener speak for himself. Ah, the intertubes. Perfect recollection.


He does offended pretty well.

Postmodern society is not bothered by such antics.

Sadly, in NYC, I can't imagine his replacement doing better/worse. This is a liberal hellhole and Charlie Rangel, a progressive democrat with a serious tax fraud, is still in office representing his fellow marxists.

He shouldn't resign nor apologize for anything. He shoulda said, boom I got hoes in different area codes, you mad bros? And dropped the mic like Sexual Chocolate. In otherwords he shoulda had some balls and stopped being feminist suck up. His wife is Hillary's love toy and hes gonna get divorced raped after this regardless.

If a gay guys personal life does not affect their job and you let them work around children, then a congressmans sex life does not affect his ability to do his job either.

This is less about right and left, this is about real manhood which the left hates with a passion. Women who keep their men's balls drained and bellies full rarely get embarassed like this. Men first, politics second gents.

I don't want him to quit. I want him to hang on, by his fingernails, until 2012. NY-9 is only D+5, I'd like to flip it red. In '10 he beat a weak, underfunded 'pubbie by only 61%-39%, if he's still around next year I foresee blood in the water.
