Christopher Lee, Republican Congressman from New York, Resigns Amidst Craig's List Scandal

by at . Comments

Hope I'm not a toad. :) i'm a very fit fun classy guy. Live in Cap Hill area. 6ft 190lbs blond/blue. 39.. Lobbyist. I promise not to disappoint.

With these words, Christopher Lee became the latest politician to end his career due to a boneheaded sex scandal. The Republican congressman from New York's 26th District has resigned after admitting he sent a Craig's List user a photo of himself shirtless under that site's "Women Seeking Men" forum.

A single 34-year old shared her story with Gawker this week, in which she placed a Craig's List ad that read: ”Will someone prove to me not all CL men look like toads?”

Lee, a married father, responded with the email printed above, sent from his own Gmail account (moron), along with this topless self-portrait. Nice flexing, dude!

The pair exchanged a few more messages before the woman ran an online search, discovered Lee's marital status and reported him. Within three hours of the story breaking, Lee issued the following statement:

“It has been a tremendous honor to serve the people of Western New York. I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents. I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness.”

You know when i first started reading this i was think another congress man bashing gays but yet was caught wanting sex from em... turns out this one was straight.


Isn't CraigsList the place where men hook up with whooers? I wonder what she charges?


He is just a desperate moron.A lame excuse of a man!


Dumb move, but it's only a stupid picture that far less risque than a Miley Cyrus video. Clinton drops trou in the the Oval Office and it's 'none of your business what someone does in their personal life'. Such an insane double standard.


I can easily believe that his family are very disappointed in the Congressman's behavior and they will work it out among themselves!!
