Weiner asked the former porn actress to lie to the press.

A former adult film actress, who said she exchanged messages online with Congressman Anthoney Weiner, says he asked her to lie about their online communications. 

Ginger Lee says Weiner coached her on lying to the press.

Lee said, “He told me if neither of us said anything over the weekend, the story would calm down and die…therefore I did what he told me today.”

Lee says she and the congressman had innocent conversations, and although he would often turn the focus of conversations to sex, she says she didn’t reciprocate.  Lee also says Weiner should resign after lying to the public.
