WOODBURY - A former adult film actress held a news conference today about her alleged online relationship with Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), claiming the lawmaker tried to have sexual conversations with her.

Appearing with her attorney, Ginger Lee said she exchanged tweets and texts with the congressman about politics.

"I did not sext Anthony Weiner," Lee said. "I did not send photos to him or receive any from him. Anytime that he would take our communications in a sexual direction, I did not reciprocate."

Lee, however, says Weiner should resign for lying to the public. A similar sentiment has been repeatedly voiced by some of Weiner's colleagues and constituents.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) says House Democrats met yesterday on the Weiner scandal and decided to give the congressman time to confer with his wife, Huma Abedin, before taking action.

Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, returned today from a trip to Africa.

Weiner is currently on a two-week leave of absence from the U.S. House of Representatives.
