Christopher Lee (R., NY): The Craigslist Congressman UPDATE: Congressman Lee Resigns
Apparently Congressman Christopher Lee thought this would be a good idea:
Rep. Christopher Lee is a married Republican congressman serving the 26th District of New York. But when he trolls Craigslist’s “Women Seeking Men” forum, he’s Christopher Lee, divorced “lobbyist” and “fit fun classy guy.”

Update: Multiple sources are reporting that Lee has resigned, effective immediately. Here’s the press release:
“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.
“The challenges we face in Western New York and across the country are too serious for me to allow this distraction to continue, and so I am announcing that I have resigned my seat in Congress effective immediately.”
Cook Lee was first elected in 2008, and re-elected last year.
