Revealed: Weiner Allegedly Coached Porn Star Twitter Friend How to Lie to Press

"The key is to have a short, thought out statement..."

Even though Anthony Weiner has admitted to sending lewd photos and saucy messages to several women over the last three years, details are still emerging. One particularly damning piece of information out today is that he allegedly coached porn star Gina Lee on how to lie to the press about their interaction.

"The key is to have a short, thought out statement that tackles the top line questions and then refer people back to it," Weiner supposedly e-mailed Lee on June 1, according to TMZ. "Have a couple of iterations of: 'This is silly. Like so many others, I follow Rep. Weiner on Twitter. 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. That's it.'"

TMZ reports he even suggested, "And then maybe insert some y'alls in there."

The following day, he apparently sent Lee two more messages. First, he offered some PR help:

"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]."

Then he proposed a statement Lee could give the media:

"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) ..."

He then asked, "How's it [the proposed statement] feel?"

It seems Lee took Weiner's suggestion to heart. According to a story posted on the Daily Caller on June 1 -- before Wiener's coaching became public -- Lee gave the DC a very similar statement.

“I haven’t met Rep Weiner. I follow him on twitter because I support him & what he stands for,” Lee said in an email to the outlet. “I have been hounded by his political opponents but that hasn’t changed my view of him and what he fights for.”

She declined to answer follow-up questions or submit to a full interview.
