NY Congressman Christopher Lee Busted On Craigslist

1804

New York Congressman Christopher Lee has resigned after he was trolling for hookups on Craigslist and was busted!

Congressman Christopher Lee is married and has a son but on Craigslist’s “Women Seeking Men” section, he said he is “divorced” “lobbyist” and a “fit fun classy guy.”

But Gawker busted Lee after a woman he attempted to hookup with called him out!

A single woman, 34, put an ad on Craigslist, writing, “Will someone prove to me not all CL men look like toads?”   She asked “financially & emotionally secure” men to reply to her listing.

That same day a man named Christopher Lee replied.   He emailed her stating he is a 39-year-old divorced lobbyist and sent her a photo.   But Lee is married, 46 years-0ld and has a son.

Here’s excerpts from their email exchanges:

Yes.. one child.. You?

The woman began researching Lee online and figured out he had lied about everything.   She then forwarded their exchange to Gawker.

Now the Congressman has resigned.   Here is his statement:

“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.”

This dumb guy ruined his job but can he salvage his marriage?
