Normally I’d say that, in the world of congressional scandals, this isn’t really a “resigning” offense but rather an “ask for an apology and move on” offense — but this guy’s so incredibly lame that yes, a resignation and “cone of shame” award was in order:
Rep. Christopher Lee, R-N.Y., abruptly resigned from the House of Representatives Wednesday afternoon after a report emerged that he had sent flirtatious e-mails, including one with a bare-chested photo of himself, to a woman he met on Craigslist.
Lee is married and has a young child.
Pictures where people are holding their own cameras are so pitiful, aren’t they?
Sources tell me that if his wife leaves him, Lee’s attorney will go all out to win full custody of the Bowflex.
Think about how stupid this guy must be… and then think about the fact that he was in Congress. Then think about how many like him (and worse) there are in Congress who refuse to go away. All our problems really start to make sense after a while.
