Weiner, the Ex-Porn Star, and the Irony of it All

Hey,

Cisco the Harwich Spirits Shoppe cat here. You know, there are times when life’s irony simply can’t escape this cat… Take a look at shamed Rep. Weiner below…

In case you haven’t been following the circus, Weiner was using a social network to “sext” (Sex Texting) various women complete with nasty, self-shot pics. (One woman didn’t even want the photos.) And in a moment of profound stupidity (as if the sexting wasn’t enough), congressman Weiner sent out a photo of his bad self to a bunch of people instead of just one. By the time he figured out what he’d done, the cat was out of the bag… So… At first he claimed that he’d been hacked and refused to directly answer whether the shots were actually of him or not. But as pressure mounted, he admitted that he’d been lying, and the images were indeed of him and that he was the one who sent them.  The upshot of it all was that he resigned today. I doubt that his pregnant wife of one year was amused.

But there’s an interesting adjunct to the story… It turns out that one of the women he was trying to sext was none other than Ginger Lee, a stripper and former full-blown porn star (pun intended). But here’s the ironic part… Ms. Lee wanted no part of the naughtiness, but instead tried to discuss political issues that were serious to her such as planned parenthood… From Fox News:

The New York Times reported that Lee said she wanted to “speak the truth” about her relationship with Weiner and “correct misconceptions about their communication.”

She said that they had communicated electronically “on a fairly regular basis” and exchanged about 100 emails. She claimed, however, that she had not sent sexual messages to Weiner and they had not exchanged photos.

Allred said Lee was interested in politics but Weiner instead turned the conversation to his “package” and its “wardrobe demands.”

Sooo… Here’s the irony… Who’s word do you take? The word of a young woman with an extraordinarily “colorful” background in an industry legend for seediness, or that of a sitting Representative in the Congress of the United States of America? I know who I trust…

Disgusted by the racks…

P.S. Did you know that Nancy Pelosi’s income rose 62% to $35.2 million last year. This from a woman who supposedly made great stock gains and wise investments, and yet twice complained, “every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs.” (The United States only has ~300 million citizens.) Gee, she must be smarter than Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and Donald Trump! (Does anyone want to buy a bridge?)

P.P.S… This just in… Weiner still gets his pension! So break out your wallet Joe Six Pack…
