(Newser) – Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, and stripper Ginger Lee have got something in common: They all think Anthony Weiner should step down. Lee, a former porn actress, says she exchanged more than a hundred messages with Weiner but she was discussing politics and didn't respond in kind to his suggestive emails. She says Weiner would attempt to turn the conversation around to sex with messages such as, "I have wardrobe demands, too. I need to highlight my package," the Los Angeles Times reports.

Lee, speaking yesterday at a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred, repeated her accusation that Weiner asked her to lie about their exchanges when the scandal broke, ABC News reports. Allred says Lee started following Weiner on Twitter because he supported Planned Parenthood and health care reform. "I think that Anthony Weiner should resign, because he lied to the public and the press for more than a week," Lee said. "If he lied about this, I can't have much faith in him about anything else."
