Former Porn Actress: Weiner 'Asked Me to Lie'

D Dipasupil/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- During a press conference Wednesday in New York City, former porn star Ginger Lee said Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., asked her to lie about their correspondence.

Lee said she never sent photos to or received photos from the congressman, and although he tried to make their conversations sexual by references to his "package," she "did not reciprocate."

"'I have wardrobe demands, too. I need to highlight my package,'" Weiner wrote in an email to Lee that was read aloud at the press conference by Lee's attorney, Gloria Allred.

Allred said that Lee began following Weiner on Twitter because he supported Planned Parenthood and health care, two issues that are important to her.

After the photo of Weiner's crotch went public, Lee said, "he asked me to lie" about the relationship. She said she issued a three-sentence statement at Weiner's request.

On June 2, Lee said Weiner called her and told her to avoid the media. According to Lee, Weiner believed if they both lay low and said nothing, the story would calm down and die. Now Lee wants Weiner to resign.

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

House Democrats and President Obama have all urged the congressman to step down.

Weiner, who has taken a two-week leave from the House, is currently at an undisclosed location seeking treatment for an undisclosed disorder. His wife, Huma Abedin, aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, returned from a trip to Africa with Clinton Wednesday morning.
