A former porn actress who says she exchanged emails and tweets with New York Rep. Anthony Weiner is speaking out for the first time about it.

Ginger Lee has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday in Manhattan. She'll appear with celebrity attorney Gloria Allred.

Weiner acknowledged last week that he had sent lewd photos and texts to women after a photo of his crotch was posted on Twitter.

Since then, TMZ.com published messages it says Weiner sent to Lee offering advice on how to mislead the press about their relationship. In an interview two weeks ago, he acknowledged that he had exchanged messages with Lee but didn't elaborate.

Weiner has taken leave from the House and is said to be seeking treatment. President Barack Obama and House Democratic leaders have pressed him to resign.
