One of Anthony Weiner's Internet lovers has turned over her entire nine months of digital correspondence with the congressman to Radar. Lisa Weiss, a 40-year-old blackjack dealer in Las Vegas, began chatting with Weiner August 13, 2010, after she sent him a Facebook message. Their chats turned sexual on September 17. Long stretches of dialogue have to be bleeped, but the creepiest part might be at the end, when Weiss promises, "I am the only fb chick u can trust."
Weiss repeatedly tries to engage Weiner in political banter, but he doesn't offer much analysis, except a mention of "that wackadoodle [Sharron] [A]ngle" and a complaint that "this whole election thing is keeping me tied up." Like a fawning fan, she frequently refers to seeing Weiner on TV, fighting, in her view, the good fight. But Weiner just wants to talk about sex. And sometimes it's only Weiner's love of attention that's evident. Here's an exchange from March 16:
Weiss: i was so psyched to see u on colbert! you were so funny
Weiner: you watch it naked?
Weiss: haha! of course! u need to let me know when your are going to be on tv! i keep missing you
Weiner: you don't get my twitter feed?
<= feelings hurt
Sometimes weeks go by with Weiner not responding to Weiss' messages. Then he'll return for a bit of your typical I-want-to-do-X-to-Y-body-part stuff. On May 31, Weiss saw the beginnings of Weinergate on the news, messaging Weiner:
"omg! are u okay? so sorry u got hacked…i know u would never do anything like have fb sex or take pics of your cock…who is the b*** who ratted u out? I am the only fb chick u can trust"
Weiner didn't respond. The next day, she warned:
"u owe me big time for keeping this all quiet…i am defending u to the death on every blog and to everyone….telling everyone u would never send dirty messages to women i know u haven't been on here since u were hacked but i NEED to talk to u…someone contacted me about u…call me or something."
