Blackjack Dealer Lisa Weiss Opens Up About Online Relationship with Anthony Weiner
Las Vegas blackjack dealer Lisa Weiss, 40, is talking to INSIDE EDITION about finding herself in a lurid online relationship with Congressman Anthony Weiner.
One minute Weiner was sending her messages like, "Hey sexy...what are you wearing?" The next, he was back in the spotlight as one of the nation's fastest rising political stars.
"I'd see him on the news and I would just laugh to myself because I knew what he had just said to me five minutes earlier," Weiss told INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret. "I was very flattered, honestly, that he would be interested in someone like me."
Weiss, speaking out on TV for the first time, says, "I'm a huge Democrat. I saw him yelling at the Republicans and I just thought he was such a figher, and I loved what he stood for and I still do."
To a political junkie like Weiss, Weiner was a rock star. She sent him fan mail on Facebook last August 13th: "i am trying to find the wonderful anthony weiner who i (fell) in love with for yelling at those damn repubs the other day!"
She was thrilled when he wrote back.
RadarOnline says more than 200 Facebook messages were traded by the congressman and the blackjack dealer over 10 months. In one, Weiner wrote: "whoa. Super intense dream bout us just now. Woke me up."
By March, their messages much more sexually charged. Believe it or not, this is one of the more innocent exchanges:
Weiner: "I'm horny a lot. sorry"
Lisa: "me too! u have that (effect) on me"
Weiss says, "My father has seen this, and I'm like, oh my God, I'm so embarrassed. I feel like the world's biggest dirty slut, the things I was saying, I was just, it was like role-playing."
Weiss is one of several women, including a former porn star and a single mom from Texas, who are caught up in the Weiner sexting scandal. She says she's coming forward to support the college coed in Seattle who was thrust into the national spotlight when she was tweeted an underwear shot by Weiner.
"I just felt bad for her and I felt like that were me I'd want somebody else to go, 'Ok, you're not the only one.' "
Weiss says Weiner never sent her a photo.
"What would you say to congressman's wife?" Moret asks.
"I feel very, very bad for talking to her husband in a way that I shouldn't have, I feel horrible," says Weiss.
