It has come to this for Anthony Weiner: a former porn star has suggested he resign, implying he's a sexual deviant who sent lewd messages to a woman who never asked for them.
Earlier today, reporters gathered for a press conference in which Ginger Lee once again said Weiner encouraged her to help him cover it his Twitter scandal.
"He asked me to lie about our communication," Lee said, with Gloria Allred by her side. "I think that Anthony Weiner should resign because he lied to the public and the press for more than a week."
Lee claims she never sexted Weiner and never reciprocated when he sent such Tweets as "My package and I are not going to beg..." and "You aren't giving my package due credit."Allred referred to her client as a "featured dancer," said Lee has undergone emotional distress over the last few weeks and confirmed she would cooperate in any House ethics investigation.
"If asked to testify, she will testify truthfully," Allred said. "And she will provide all of her communications to and from the congressman to the committee.”
On June 1, Weiner told Wolf Blitzer, in reference to Lee: "I don't know who the woman is. I followed her for a moment. And then someone started Tweeting, oh my goodness, Anthony Weiner is following someone in that industry.”
The very next day, Lee alleges, Weiner instructed her what to say if approached about their relationship.
