#Weinergate rolls on for Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat. Now we’re learning that the plagued congressman shared private communications with porn star and stripper Ginger Lee. In a March 13 tweet, Tennessee-based Lee indicated that Weiner sent her a private Twitter message:

You know it’s a good day when you wake up to a DM from @RepWeiner,” Lee tweeted. “(I’m a fangirl, y’all, he’s my trifecta of win.)

When contacted by The Daily Caller, Lee wouldn’t say what Weiner sent her in that private direct message, or DM in Twitter-speak. Lee also refused to answer whether she and Weiner have had other private communications and declined to say whether Weiner has sent her photos of any kind. Instead, she downplayed the #Weinergate scandal.

“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 TheDC. “I have been hounded by his political opponents but that hasn’t changed my view of him and what he fights for.”

Lee also wouldn’t answer whether Weiner or any member of his staff had been in contact with her since the #Weinergate scandal began. Weiner’s spokesman, Dave Arnold, did not respond to TheDC’s requests for comment on Weiner’s past communications with Lee.

Left-leaning news site Talking Points Memo reported that Weiner was asked about Lee on Tuesday night after the House debt ceiling vote. The New York Democrat deflected the question.
