In a seeming attempt to milk some cash out of the sexting scandal engulfing Rep. Anthony Weiner, former porn star Ginger Lee held a press conference in New York minutes ago about her cyber relationship with the embattled congressman. "I didn't want to be the one to kick him under the bus," she said, explaining that the incident had caused her emotional distress and lost wages. "I think Anthony Weiner should resign because he lied to the public... for a matter of weeks. If he lied about this I can't have much faith in him about anything else."

Detailing her relationship with Weiner, Lee said she began following Weiner because he supported Planned Parenthood and health care reform. They began e-mailing and tweeting each other in conversations that "started about politics but sometimes he would take it to another level," explained Gloria Allred, Lee's celebrity attorney of Tiger Woods fame, among other things. Allred read some of their e-mail exchanges, including a passage from the congressman saying "my package and I are not going to beg. We both see the hazard of going down the path of comparative sexiness."

In a vaguely-worded statement, Lee said she was speaking out now because someone threatened to release a statement about her and Wiener's relationship that was false. "I did not reciprocate" she insisted, describing incidents when Weiner would say sexually provocative things. "I did not sext Anthony Weiner." Lee repeated the claim that Weiner reached out to her offering his PR team's assistance in dealing with the scandal. Also, she says she's getting out of the "feature dancer" business and pursuing a career as a real estate agent. In a sign that Weinergate may be far from over, Allred took to the podium after Lee finished speaking, saying her client "stands ready to cooperate with the investigation if she's asked to do so. If called to testify she will testify truthfully. And she will provide all of her correspondence to the committee."
