Update 10:00 a.m June 7th
The scandal just worsens for New York Congressman Anthony Weiner as reports are surfacing that he offered porn star Ginger Lee tips on how to lie about their sexting scandal, according to 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,” the site says.
“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].'”
The prepared statement reads as follows:
“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) …”
The porn star has tweeted that she has “Weinermania” and wanted to sleep with the congressman.

At a press conference yesterday, New York Congressman Anthony Weiner has admitted to sending pictures to women through his phone, Facebook and Twitter.
The Democratic Congressman said that he sent the messages and pictures both before his marriage and after and says that he will not be resigning.
Weiner was asked about an alleged x-rated photograph that BigGovernment’s Andrew Breitbart had and he did not deny that it was in existence. He said most of the pictures were sent to women he met on Facebook and that he has no plans of splitting with his wife.
