Exotic dancer claims explicit contact with Rep. Weiner

An exotic dancer who says she had an online relationship with Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) is speaking out for the first time since his sexting

BROOKLYN - An exotic dancer who says she had an online relationship with Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) is speaking out for the first time since his sexting scandal broke, claiming he made explicit comments to her during their conversations.

The woman, Ginger Lee, says she is one of several women with whom Weiner had explicit contact with via Twitter and email.

As for whether Weiner will resign, sources say he was waiting for his wife, Huma Abedin, to return to the country before making any decisions about his political future. Abedin was accompanying Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Africa.

Several high-ranking officials have called for Weiner's resignation, including President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio).

Brooklyn residents had differing views on the issue, with some supporting the embattled politician and others calling for him to step down.

Lee says she is willing to testify in any type of investigation and will provide all of her communications with Weiner.

Weiner is currently on an official leave of absence.
