Ginger Lee said she and Mr Weiner exchanged about 100 emails between March and June after Ms Lee had posted a supportive statement about the congressman on her blog.

She said they mostly discussed politics, but that he would often turn the conversation to sex.

"I have wardrobe demands too -- I need to highlight my package," Mr Weiner wrote to Ms Lee in an email read aloud at a news conference by her attorney Gloria Allred.

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

In an interview two weeks ago, he acknowledged that he had exchanged messages with Ms Lee but he did not elaborate. She said she did not send any suggestive messages to Weiner.

"Any time that he would take our communications in a sexual direction, I did not reciprocate," she said.

Mr Weiner sent Lee an email after the photo of his crotch was sent out on his Twitter account and "he asked me to lie" about their contact, she said.

A spokeswoman for Mr Weiner did not return a request for comment.
