Ginger Lee, Weinergate Twitter Stripper, Hosts Publicity Stunt: 'I Did Not Sext Anthony Weiner'

Ginger Lee, a Twitter user and stripper who communicated with New York congressman Anthony Weiner via the internet, waited until much of the Weinergate white noise died down to chomp at her piece of the publicity pie, hosting a press conference with the ubiquitous attorney Gloria Allred on Wednesday afternoon. Allred spoke first, explaining that Lee and Weiner met over Twitter because Lee respected the politician's views on Planned Parenthood and health care, "two issues that are very important to her." The two developed an email relationship, exchanging more than 100 messages, according to Allred, who said that "discussions at first were about politics, but sometimes he would try to take it to another level, meaning his 'package.'" Lee didn't want to go there, Allred said, but Weiner's emails were "constant." But Lee promised she never sent or received any lewd photos from the congressman. She "still cares deeply about Planned Parenthood and health care," but now she believes there are officials better suited to advocate for those issues, Allred said. "She will no longer support Congressman Weiner."

"She's had to cancel appearances and work and go into hiding," Allred explained, thereby giving up incoming, "which she needed." As of yet, "she has not profited at all." (Presumably that's what today is for.)

Lee eventually took the mic, explaining that yes, Weiner knew conservatives were after him for his online behavior, but he kept at it. "He asked me to lie about our communication," Lee said.

After the media frenzy of the last two weeks, she eventually released a brief statement, which the congressman helped her write, but she did not want to "kick him under the bus," so she mostly stayed quiet. No longer!

"I think that Anthony Weiner should resign because he lied to the press and to the public for more than a week," Lee said. "If he lied about this, then I can't have much faith in him about anything else." Just in case you were wondering.

Some reporters present proceeded to ask a series of credulous questions, though none identified themselves as book agents or talent scouts from VH1.

This being Capitol Hill and one should remember what’s often so important isn’t the policies that get made but rather the shade of lipstick one is prone to find flapping in the wind, or sometimes as in Mr Weiner’s case the elasticity of a well spent pair of pantyhose.

He is smart and aggressive and fights for the working guy, what has his kinkiness and freakiness got to do with it?  One Weiner is worth 100 stupid and lazy politicians.

And we should believe this woman why?  Why don't they read her responses if "she just wanted to talk about politics" ... right ...

The difference between Allred and a bottom-feeding, scum-eating catfish is that one of them is a fish....
