GOP Rep. Christopher Lee, a congressman who serves the 26th district of New York, has been caught sending shirtless pics to a woman he found on Craigslist. Rep. Lee may be a congressman, but his online alter-ego is a “divorced, classy, lobbyist” on Craigslist. A 34-year-old woman placed an ad for “women seeking men” asking for pictures of financially secure men.
Rep. Christopher Lee replied later that afternoon using a Gmail account, which just happened to be connected to his Facebook page. Congressman Lee admitted that he sent pictures to the 34-year-old woman and told her he was divorced with one child. The woman replied and a PG-rated flirting was the end result.
While Rep. Christopher Lee was not caught actually cheating, he appeared to critics to be quite willing. The woman, who wants to remain anonymous, says she searched for him online and found out he was lying to her, and that he was indeed married.
A spokesman for Congressman Lee confirmed the story, but tried to put a spin on it saying the representative might have been hacked. However, Rep. Lee had already admitted to sending pictures to the anonymous woman, and images were found on his Blackberry cell phone. Rep. Christopher Lee is now in the process of turning in his resignation.
