A congressman, a porn star, a black jack dealer, infidelity, lies, and ethics violations. This scandal is going to make a juicy movie one day…
Weiner initially had planned a trip to Vegas to visit Lisa Weiss the Vegas Blackjack dealer:
(NY Post) Just when you didn’t think it could get worse, new X-rated text messages were made public today where Rep. Anthony Weiner got down and dirty with one of the women he had befriended on Facebook — even telling her that he was prepared to travel to Nevada to bed her.
In a series of messages dating back to Sept. 17, 2010, Weiner wrote to 40-year-old Lisa Weiss — a Nevada blackjack dealer who went back and forth with Weiner on Facebook for more than a year — that he was interested in meeting her.
“i’m ready for a vegas trip. truth telling during the day. got a night plan for us?” Weiner wrote, according to a transcript of 220 messages posted on *RadarOnline.com. >>>
*NSFW –A word of warning the Weiner Weis Facebook transcript obtained by Radar Online contains extremely graphic sexual content.
Weiner coached Ginger Lee the porn star to lie, gave her a statement to give the press:
(TMZ) Weiner and former porn star Ginger Lee exchanged scores of sexual emails over a long period of time.Â 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.
On June 2, Weiner emailed Lee, “Do you need to talk to a professional PR type person to give u advice?Â I can have someone on my team call. [Yeah, my team is doing great. Ugh].”
Weiner put on a full court press, urging Lee to lie about their relationship.Â On June 1, he emailed her:Â “The key is to have a short, thought out statement that tackles the top line questions and then refer people back to it.Â Have a couple of iterations of: ‘This is silly.Â Like so many others, I follow Rep. Weiner on Twitter.Â I don’t know him and have never met him. He briefly followed me and sent me a dm saying thank you for the follow.Â That’s it.’”
On June 2, Weiner sent Lee a proposed statement she could give to the press: >>>
Update: “Erections Have Consequences”
Click image to vote in the poll.
A few days into the WeinertGate scandal, day three or four I believe a commentator on Fox stated that if the N Y Post drops the story it will blow right over. Well a lot has happened since then and now today the N Y Post is calling for him to resign.
“My constituents have to make the determination,” he said.
Which is technically true.
But if Tony Weiner had a shred of personal honor, he’d relieve them of that responsibility.
He won’t, because he is devoid of honor. That was made clear by his weeklong campaign of lies and character assassination meant to deceive his wife of less than a year, his staff, his constituents and the general public — and to vilify Andrew Breitbart, the online journalist who first disclosed the salacious photos and messages.
Breitbart has made mistakes. But he’s scored important scoops, too.
Including this one.
Bottom line: Anthony Weiner betrayed his office and his constituents along with his wife. He has lost whatever respect — and effectiveness — he ever enjoyed as a member of Congress.
Now he’s fit only for cable-TV comedy punch lines, and it’s going to get worse.
He needs to resign.
Update 2: On June 2 Lisa Weiss shopped her story to Rachel Maddow via Twitter
The Las Vegas woman who seduced Rep. Anthony Weiner and carried on a torrid nine month cyber sex relationship tried to expose him on a show where he was a regular guest — MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show!
Before approaching RadarOnline.com and Star magazine with a transcript of her sexting exchanges, Lisa Weiss told us that she had contacted noted liberal political analyst and television host Rachel Maddow.
“Anthony was a regular guest on Rachel’s show and I love her, so much, and her views, so I reached out to her,” the blackjack dealer told RadarOnline.com.
“But I never heard back.”
Two days before on June 1 according to the Facebook sexting transcript acquired by Radar Online Weis to Weiner: “U owe me big time for keeping this quiet”. Someone should ask Lisa what exactly she meant by “U owe me big time”.

i know u haven’t been on here since u were hacked but i NEED to talk to u…someone

The above text is the last communication between the two of them, contained within the transcripts.
Theory: Weiss grew impatient when she did not hear back from Weiner and decided to go to Plan B. Heh. If so, not to bright that one, to have went to Maddow of all people.
And as a matter of fact the Weiss Maddow tweet is the last tweet Lisa Weiss had made (at the time of this update). She has been quiet on Twitter since. As you can see here.
