Report: Weiner Coached Porn Star On How To Lie To Media

This is via TMZ, and they don’t recount how they came upon the emails, but if  this is true, it’s very damning:

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].”

Who does he mean by “My team?” If it’s his congressional staff, then he may have run afoul of House Ethics Rules.

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.”

Again, I have no idea how TMZ got this, but they report that Weiner sent Lee this 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) …”

Lee gave this statement to the DC Caller on #Weinergate 6/1:

“I haven’t met Rep Weiner. I follow him on twitter because I support him & what he stands for,” Lee said in an email to TheDC last Wednesday morning. “I have been hounded by his political opponents but that hasn’t changed my view of him and what he fights for.”

Weiner lied to Wolf Blitzer in his June 1 interview with CNN, saying that the direct message Lee received was generic and automated.

“I — most likely what she’s referring to is, as a pro forma thing, thank you for following Congressman Anthony — thank you for following me, please stay tuned to AnthonyWeiner.com for updates of other things going on,” Weiner said. “That’s probably what she’s referring to.”

I still say Weiner doesn’t survive this.
Dems are no longer circling the wagons.

At no point during the press conference or in the preceding week did integrity make an appearance. He lied as long as he could, then said he made a mistake. That’s a weasel word. It is reminiscent of how President Bill Clinton discussed his sexual escapade with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. What Weiner actually meant was he made a political mistake. He got caught lying about who he is. “Mistake” masks the importance of the personal crime.

It is apparent he can no longer effectively advocate for the people of New York or the policies he claims to support. He is a leading advocate for the Obama health law, but how can he advocate for it when he is no longer considered a person of sound judgment or moral values?

I feel that way about virtually all Dems. Why is it only when they’re caught lying about personal matters that scandals erupt? Reid/Pelosi/Obama et al  flagrantly lie to the American people every day about policy matters and no one bats an eye.
