Rep. Christopher Lee, R-N.Y., resigns after Craigslist dating ad scandal.
Oops. Isn't he a big "family values" type?
Big deal. I don't think he should have resigned over it.
Agreed. It would have been much more fun to have him stick around and be hypocritical some more.
I'd bet he resigned because a lot more will now come out. Washington scumbags don't give up their seats easily (see Rangel, Charlie).
A shirtless photo? Whoop de doo.
What a lame reason to resign. At least get caught with a prostitute like a distinguished politician should
You got that right. This can't have been the first time he was on craigslist.
Aww, and he was so good as Saruman.
I was hoping to hear hilarious explanations such as the "wide stance" defense. This guy's going with out a fight. Weak.
Lack of judgement might only be the tip of the iceberg here.
It is a constant source of wonder, how people of power, no matter the source, think that they are somehow above the fray.
I applaud his fiscal conservativeness in using craigslist and not some high priced escort service.
Perhaps he's not fortunate enough to be able to write a cheque for 30 grand, and have it stick.
The height of conservative hypocrisy demands such a drastic result, although I think, shedding a tear in public and admitting to sin and asking for forgiveness would suffice. Apparently the GOP does not forgive when you are caught.
You can hook up on Craigslist now? Where have I been
I'd be interested to hear if the woman in the Craigslist ad thinks he looks like a toad, as per her original challenge.
there is more to this story. No way he resigned that quickly, just for this.
One by one, the GOP majority starts to erode.
Grotty Old Party???
Yeah, don't get me started. Just start with "Greedy" or "Grifters" and work from there.
You hold a public office.
You know what the internet is.
You expect your foray into extramarital fun to be private -- on the internet.
It blows my mind.
I gotta say, I'd much rather go down in a blaze of (in)glory getting caught with ultra high end call girls, than by getting busted sending a topless picture to some craigslist ad...that's just lame as hell.
The really creepy part was when he drew his fingernail across his chest and made the girl drink his blood.
