GOP Sex Scandal: Rep. Christopher Lee (R-NY) Goes Topless!

There are bigger fish than this low-on-the-totem-pole House Republican. But he baited and set the hook himself, and threw himself into the boat. I know little about him, other than if you were looking for a date on the internet, you could do worse (I'm just saying). The surprising thing here is that Lee resigned only hours after first denying (someone hacked my computer!) the event. I suppose he was having a hard time figuring out a story to go with his half-naked self portrait. Or maybe there was more to be discovered, and he just didn't want to go down that road.

Immediately, some conservatives started sputtering that of course he resigned, he's a Republican! Why, a Democrat wouldn't just stay in office, he'd be championed for it!  Well, before you guys get all high-horsey here, don't forget:

- Sen. John Ensign (R-NV), my Nevada Senator, currently fundraising for re-election.
- Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), caught soliciting hookers, received applause in the House chamber!
- Sen. Larry Craig (R-WY), served out his term after his wide stance was discovered in a restroom.

And many, many others. This is an activity performed by men of all political persuasions. The difference is, the right side of the aisle regularly claims a moral superiority, and wants to legislate other people's behavior.


New York Rep. Chris Lee Resigns Over Craigslist Dating Ad and Sexy Photo

What started last month with an anonymous woman's Craigslist dating search for men who don't "look like toads" ended Wednesday with the resignation of two-term Rep. Christopher Lee, R-N.Y., a married father who passed himself off as a divorced lobbyist when he sent her a topless muscle photo of himself. . .

  1. The party of "Family Values" my ass, more like the "Party of hypocrites". Poor Christopher Lee, at least he resigned! What about Senator John Ensign (NV) and Governor Mark Stanford (SC), and diaper boy Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)! Too Funny!

  2. Everyone is saying that Lee didn't even get to have sex, and still had to resign. Bull pucky. What are the chances that this was the VERY first time he ever sent a half-nude photo to a lady on Craiglist? Really? Busted the first time out of the gate? Doubtful. The fact that he resigned so very, very quickly tells me there is a RAGING fire behind this smoke. By resigning, he's killed the newsworthiness of a continuing investigation, and he can tell a MUCH more benign story to Mrs. Lee. That way he prevents, "1-2-3, I Shot Mr. Lee. . ." Heh.
