NY Congressman Resigns Due To…An Affair!

Posted: February 11, 2011 by fmed77 in Uncategorized

Yes, I know what you’re thinking. It’s been too long since the last political scandal permeated through our cultural realm. Well, we can now add another one to the list.

On Wednesday, New York Congressman Christopher Lee resigned his seat amid Washington DC’s latest cheating scandal. It was discovered that he had been in contact with a woman on Craigslist (oh and by the way, he’s married), and former Congressman Lee thought it would be a brilliant idea to send a shirtless photo of himself to her. Well, not only did she find out that he was not a “divorced lobbyist”, as he had claimed in their multiple email exchanges, but when she realized his true identity, she sent off the shirtless photo as well as their back-and-forth emails to Gawker, who quickly published the story and the photo, causing the news to spread like wild fire across the Internet. Within hours of the story breaking, Christopher Lee had resigned his seat in Congress, and it was all over.

It’s baffling to me how someone in such a position would think no one would ever find out about his online affair. It also baffles me that he went so far as to send her said shirtless photo, revealing his true identity! In an age where anyone can find information about anyone else on the Internet, it’s just plain stupid that he decided to engage in a Craigslist tryst, and thought that he could get away with it.

It’s unfortunate that this kind of behavior has become the norm in politics today, but it seems that lately, Washington DC has become its own Hollywood with endless drama and scandal.
