The rapidly deteriorating situation of Rep. Anthony Weiner, the New Face of the Democrat Party, took another slide with the entrance of celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred. Fresh from her role in handing what’s left of California over to Jerry Brown, Allred swung into the Weiner roast as the lawyer to stripper and porn actress Ginger Lee, who claims to have exchanged a hundred emails with the randy politician.
A hundred emails? I didn’t even get a hundred emails from Vonage after I canceled my account.
According to a Reuters reported, Lee said “her relationship began with the Democratic lawmaker from New York over political issues such as a woman’s right to choose abortion, and health care, but that Weiner kept trying to turn the conversation sexual.” That never happens when you join pro-life organizations, although some of them do send out lovely Christmas cards.
Allred was kind enough to read some of his text messages, in which Weiner spoke often to Lee about his “package.” For once, he wasn’t talking about a package of tax hikes. More importantly, Lee claims that Weiner instructed her to lie about the scandal, and offered to send her someone from his crack public-relations squad. There are also unconfirmed reports he advised her to get cash at an ATM, which could easily have destroyed her job, according to state-of-the-art Democrat economic theories.
“I knew I couldn’t lie for him, but I did not want to be the one who kicked him under the bus,” wailed Lee, a day after President Obama finally tugged on his boots and signaled his driver to warm up the Bus of Career Oblivion.
Allred says the beleaguered stripper’s life has been sliding slowly down a pole into “emotional distress,” where there is a two-drink minimum of gloom, and no dollars are tucked into the panties of a desolate dancer. Lee says Weiner should resign, “because he lied to the public and the press for more than a week.” If that’s her standard for getting rid of politicians, I think the American people would be wise to give the under-employed dancer a badge, and let her clean out Washington.
Fox News reports that House Democrats are increasingly eager to get rid of Weiner, because he’s “overshadowing their political message.” Actually, if I were a Democrat, that would sound like a good reason to keep him around.
Just in time for Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin to return home from a trip to Africa, the National Enquirer is running pictures of him cross-dressing as a teenager. “The pictures, taken by a college friend in 1982 when he was 18, demonstrate Weiner’s reputation at the State University of Plattsburgh as a flamboyant figure,” says Fox News. I believe that reputation is now eternally secure.
