Celebrity news website TMZ.com is running a story which, if true, could put Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-NY) political career to bed for awhile.
In an article headlined “Weiner Told Porn Star to Lie, Offered PR Help,” TMZ says “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.”
The article says Weiner told Lee in a June 2 email that he “can have someone on my team call” to give her professional PR advice.
“It’s unclear if Weiner’s PR team is from his Congressional staff,” the site added, noting “If so, Weiner could run afoul of House Ethics Rules as well as the law.”
TMZ says Weiner urged Lee “to lie about their relationship” and sent her “a proposed statement she could give to the press.”
