Sexy Craigslist Congressman Chris Lee (R-Casual Encounters) Resigns

by Ken Layne

Not so fast!Weirdo Republican House Rep. Chris Lee of New York’s 26th District was actually trying to hook up with ladies on the Internet, which is so not the way the GOP rolls, so he has already resigned in shame, the end. Honestly, that’s the end to this dumb, quick, embarrassing story. He really can spend more time with his family now, if they still want him around. Maybe they do. Maybe they are forgiving. We should all be forgiving, now and then. Good-bye, Congressman Chris Lee and your teen-aged boy self-shot posted all over the Internet forever. [Washington Post/MSNBC]

If only he had taken more of a widestance his colleagues would have been much more supportive, if you know what I mean.

Not enough clout to get him a billet at C Street until this all blew over?

Sophist [APPLESAUCE] February 9, 2011 at 7:38 pm

Not enough kink. If you're going to stay with The Family, you need to pull your own weight, bacchanalia wise.

Lascauxcaveman February 9, 2011 at 7:50 pm

Yep, he obviously wanted a slot in The Family. Poor schmuck is doomed spending more time with HIS family.

PsycWench February 9, 2011 at 8:00 pm

Nah, he just wanted a slot.

Zvi_Bleindmeis February 9, 2011 at 8:33 pm

Craigslist has a separate listing category for slots.

DustBowlBlues February 9, 2011 at 8:48 pm

He couldn't at least get one of Spooky Doktor Tom Coburn's (R- Eschatologyhoma) trademarked male pelvic exams? He's an OB/GYN, so when he claimed he couldn't discuss what transpired between him and John Ensign because of doctor/patient confidentiality, I assumed that's what he'd done.

horsedreamer_1 February 10, 2011 at 9:29 am

Or, Ensign is an hermaphrodite?

Beowoof February 9, 2011 at 10:40 pm

I think something blew here just not what Chris was looking for.

tunamelt February 9, 2011 at 7:21 pm

I guess this means we're stuck with the Gawker Media redesign. Republicans ruin everything.

Cicada February 9, 2011 at 7:33 pm

Well, the redesign got you commenting here again so it's a win overall.

Lascauxcaveman February 10, 2011 at 12:54 am

Gawker redesign hint: If you click on the icon to the left of the little house icon (very top of page) you can make Gawker fairly readable again. Puts it into "Classic Blog Format" or somesuch.

CZL February 9, 2011 at 7:22 pm

David Vitter heard to say, "if only he'd supported traditional values like paying a hooker to change your poopy diapers, he could have joined our Republican sanctity of marriage coalition."

Ted Haggard said, "With pecs like those, I could score some meth and jerk him for hours."

hollywooddood February 9, 2011 at 8:49 pm

Depends.

SaintRond February 9, 2011 at 9:57 pm

Vitter apologized profusely… Or maybe "copiously" would be a better term. In any case, he stated publicly that he made a "terrible mistake," and from now on I assume he is only going to take shits on his wife, as God intended.

Hey! Where you going??!!?!?! I'm not done gawking yet!

SmutBoffin February 9, 2011 at 7:29 pm

Damn. He wasn't in my "Disgraceful Resignation Pool" picks. I thought I had the shit locked down with my choice of Charlie Rangel, but it didn't pan out. I've still got Steve King in there for some 'racist tirade' action, but people generally don't resign over that.

DustBowlBlues February 9, 2011 at 8:50 pm

"but people generally don't resign over that."

Mores the pity. The racist rant is actually a plus for Republicans.

Lascauxcaveman February 10, 2011 at 12:58 am

You should know Rangel has no shame. I can't even imagine what he'd have to get caught doing before he resigned. He could get un-elected, of course, but it'd take a whopper. Nothing like simple (attempted) adultery.

Chet Kincaid February 10, 2011 at 3:01 pm

If Rangel didn't exist, John Stewart would have to invent him. Because he is the one black man he can credibly imitate. And who doesn't love how Rangel masticates a New York accent?

Negropolis February 10, 2011 at 11:51 pm

Not just any old New York accent, but a Jewish one. Honest-to-goodness, I thought the guy was black Jew up until relatively recently.

BTW, he totally does the slicked backed lion's mane of hair better than Al Sharpton. In Detroit, we have another slicked backed lion's mane attached to an ancient African American (i.e. John Conyers), but it does not even begin to rival Rangel's in stature of volume.

Chet Kincaid February 11, 2011 at 9:50 am

I wonder which of those guys has Buckra in the woodpile, genetically speaking, vs. conking the hell out of that bad boy?

Blendergoathead February 9, 2011 at 7:29 pm

Excuse me for a minute…

BWAHAHAHAAAAAHAAAA… HAAAAHHAAAAAAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAA…

Fuck that guy.

DustBowlBlues February 9, 2011 at 8:52 pm

I heard he's in a safe R district, so it's hard for me to get excited. The only surprise is that he resigned over a heterosexual no-no. Republithugs are always forgiving of those.

AutomaticPilot February 9, 2011 at 8:58 pm

Yeah, he will be replaced by a Republican – no doubt about it. His district is suburban Buffalo and Rochester, and includes a lot of people who thought Carl Paladino would have been an excellent governor.

UW8316154 February 9, 2011 at 11:28 pm

…which leads me to believe there are other women out there with simillar emails from him – if he is to be believed (and certainly Mr. Single, 39-year-old's credibility is a little shaky at this point), he has had at least ONE other "date".

simplycookingnonna February 12, 2011 at 12:32 am

Monsieur_Grumpe February 9, 2011 at 7:30 pm

This guy should take some lessons from Vitter. He went down too easy. Maybe there is something really sleazy that has yet to be dug up like pirated cable or kitten porn. Wimp.

the_problem_child February 9, 2011 at 7:50 pm

Jonathan Weisman just tweeted:
"Back story on Chris Lee is gonna be juicy. Lots of reporters were chasing it this fall. None of us could break it."

So, probably.

DustBowlBlues February 9, 2011 at 8:54 pm

Zvi_Bleindmeis February 9, 2011 at 8:47 pm

If I remember right, each synaptic relay in a brain sequence takes something on the order of 50-100 milliseconds. There are a million nanoseconds in a millisecond, which is even shorter than Congressman Lee apparently takes to resign his seat.

DustBowlBlues February 9, 2011 at 8:56 pm

The maths. I could never understand the maths, esp. the metric kind of maths.

You can't really blame him. He represents Buffalo, for godsakes. What else is there to do in Buffalo in the wintertime besides watching the snow fall and having sexytime with multiple partners?

twaingirl February 9, 2011 at 7:46 pm

And drink. You forgot massive amounts of drinking of LaBatts and Molson.

What is it with Maryland? Every I look today, all I see is shit about Maryland. Ever since my daughter officially (she's working in Florida) moved there. BTW–My English friend calls it MARY land, which is a lot nicer than Mareland.

The problem with stories like this is the real culprit, namely marriage, escapes unscathed.

LionelHutzEsq February 9, 2011 at 7:35 pm

What? That's It? Does his wife not own a leopard print dress? Is searching for consensual sex really that much worse than paying hookers?

UW8316154 February 9, 2011 at 11:33 pm

If it was just consensual sex, this would be a pass. The lying part makes it interesting.

Lascauxcaveman February 10, 2011 at 1:23 am

The entirely legitimate (to my mind) concept of a discrete, competent mistress is lost on the prudish American public, somehow.

Personal experience in my case, for example, has proven that age-old saw about mens' libidos going much father into advanced years than the woman's as my own wife, whom I find a still quite attractive woman at 45, seems to be anecdotal evidence in support of this theory. Yet when I delicately broach the subject with her of finding a substitute to perform the physical duties for which she seems to no longer have great enthusiasm, she warms to the subject of her original marital rights & responsibilities for a reasonable amount of time. And thus, complications of the sort the congressman in question has stumbled upon are avoided.

But I would never dream of going behind her back; that's just plain dishonest.

Chet Kincaid February 10, 2011 at 3:09 pm

You said, "mens' libidos going much FATHER into advanced years". That is interesting! Why do you think you said that? You haven't mentioned your father before.

Well, we're out of time! Next Tuesday at 4 pm, then?

Lascauxcaveman February 14, 2011 at 1:42 am

Pretty straightforward, Mr Doctor Shrink. It's my libido that made me a father in the first place, isn't it? It may not be the last time either. I'm only 50; I'm not dead.

Negropolis February 10, 2011 at 11:59 pm

Bwhahaha! You are so horrible in the best way. I'm sure somewhere in Sweden this is considered a kind or rape.

Lascauxcaveman February 14, 2011 at 1:43 am

What's the equivalent Swedish colloquialism for "Fair is fair?"

Off topic, but Sarah Palin gave her opinion (!! on groups boycotting CPAC for letting a gay Republican group participate, and the word salad problem has not resolved:

"It's like you being on a panel, shoot, with a bunch of the liberal folks whom you have been on and you provide good information and balance, and you allow for healthy debate, which is needed in order for people to gather information and make up their own minds about issues."

glamourdammerung February 9, 2011 at 8:16 pm

Someone needs to tell her (and our little Breitard) that "debate" does not mean "scream a bunch of easily verifiable falsehoods and then cry about being a victim when the falsehoods are debunked".

Wasn't that what the whole Santorum dustup was? Then again, maybe it's just that I can't figure out what the hell this woman is talking about.

ShaveTheWhales February 9, 2011 at 11:11 pm

Sadly, I don't think she regards it as a problem. It's more like a verbal Rorschach, where she knows that her target audience's neurons will reliably fire in response to some of the words in the salad; therefore, win.

He has resigned in order to focus on his dream of being a divorced lobbyist.

Gay Mexican Intern February 9, 2011 at 9:09 pm

Fun. This guy, despite being on the wrong side of the aisle, was one of the biggest friends of the Delphi Automotive salaried workers trying to get their pensions back after getting pretty shitty treatment from Geithner and his cronies (those folks getting the shaft included family members of mine). I don't think anything was ever going to realistically happen there, at least not legislatively, but still…kinda shitty.

And yeah, I see ttommmyunger's comment up there. There's far more deserving douches for this sort of thing. Not that what this guy did wasn't douchey, though.

Weenus299 February 9, 2011 at 9:10 pm

I'm just getting around to this. I'm too busy to read through here. 1. Who the fuck is he, 2. any relation to Bruce, and 3. I wish I looked like that.

Bonzos_Bed_Time February 10, 2011 at 1:10 am

On the plus side, chances are you can reply to personals on CL and not lose your job. Your marriage, that's a different story.

DustBowlBlues February 9, 2011 at 9:29 pm

OT and risky, given the fact the editor in chief himself did this one, but many of the wonkeratti are smart and well-educated so while we're talking about the original 13 states (that's a stretch, but still . . . ) can anyone recommend a marginally recent, good critical biography of James Madison? I just don't understand the guy. Father of the Constitution/Jefferson's lackey? (Based on four J. Ellis books, JA by McCullough and Beeman's Plain, Honest Men).

I'd like to see the classy lobbyist wannabe drive toward the setting sun with truck nutz dangling behind him. Also. [applause] and, I would remind him, it's all about the jobs.

Dudleydidwrong February 9, 2011 at 10:41 pm

Try Gary Wills biography of Madison, published in 2002.

DustBowlBlues February 10, 2011 at 10:20 am

Thank you, kind sir. I shall review the recommended folio whilst I peruse the other offerings from the gentlemen, Mr. Barnes and Mr. Noble.

Pray, go on with your your day and I hope it is a fine one.

Extemporanus™ February 9, 2011 at 10:01 pm

This "news" has no doubt been noted elsewhere by now, but rosy "Palmetto State" governor Nikki "Bollywood Angie Harmon" Haley—who previously promised to resign should proof of illicit sexytime come to light—has been smeared in the face (again!) by her ex-campaign manager-cum-bukakke-blogger's gross "tome of love":

"We never took our clothes off that first night, but the physical relationship between us progressed much faster than I expected. After sliding the front seats of her SUV as far back as they would go, Nikki climbed on top of me – rubbing her crotch back and forth over the growing bulge in my pants while I groped her ass and ran my hands through her hair and up and down her back."

fuflans February 9, 2011 at 10:42 pm

no i don't think this has been noted elsewhere.

Crank_Tango February 9, 2011 at 11:03 pm

my dick gets rug burns just thinking about that.

user-of-owls February 9, 2011 at 11:03 pm

It was in Huffington, so i think the verb you want is not "noted," but rather "shouted."

GregComlish February 9, 2011 at 11:04 pm

"rubbing her crotch back and forth over the growing bulge…"

Yikes

Maybe the testimony is true, but the writing style has some suspicious hallmarks of amateur erotica. Are you sure this isn't fanfiction from the forums on TeamSarah?

imissopus February 9, 2011 at 11:13 pm

Now I can say I only read HuffPo for the articles and have it be true.

fap, fap, fap, fap…so hot, right now.

John Mayer’s “Slow Dancing In a Burning Room” played on her CD changer.

Aww, shit. Boner deceased.

Wait…

Nikki and I kissed even harder and heavier than we had before (away from the lights of the Vista, we weren’t worried about people seeing us here), and at one point I slid my hands under her turtleneck and felt her breasts over the black bra she was wearing.

Awww, getting hot, again.

It was intense. In fact it was one of the most passionate “eighth-grade make out sessions” I’ve ever experienced in my life.

Fuck it; I'm done with this shit. Had to go ruin it with going all "8th-grade make-out session" on us, eh?

imissopus February 10, 2011 at 12:39 am

Wait, if she was still wearing a turtleneck how could he tell what color her bra was? SEX SCENE WRITING FAIL.

Crank_Tango February 10, 2011 at 1:12 am

i was just thinking the same thing. then i was wondering how many 8th grader s this dude makes out with.

Lascauxcaveman February 10, 2011 at 2:00 am

GIVE THE KID A BREAK! Some of the best make out sessions I ever had were with 8th graders. When I was in 7th grade, that is.

imissopus February 10, 2011 at 3:02 am

All of them, Katie.

Fuck, does this mean we have to have a special election to replace him? Can't the NYGov assign a replacement? Does NY even HAVE a governor anymore? I thought they all were in prison or wandered off into the wilderness.

Bring back zombie Jimmy Griffin!!! Grab a six pack and relax!!!

user-of-owls February 9, 2011 at 11:07 pm

Well. when Paterson was Gov, wandering off blindly into the wilderness was considerably more likely than in other administrations. Actually, has anyone seen the guy lately? I mean besides on milk cartons?

PresBeeblebrox February 9, 2011 at 10:29 pm

Needs moar pederasty. Srsly, this is the most boring Congressional sex scandal evar. No diapers, hookers, pages, IM chats, gay prostitution, blow &/or meth, glory holes, or airport bathrooms.

"What do you think about that?" — Sen. Larry Craig (R-Wide Stance)

Negropolis February 10, 2011 at 12:03 am

Don't worry. I'm sure a tranvestite prostitute will pop up somewhere in all of this. Admittedly, this was not his first rodeo, and only so many of the "women" you met on these intertubes are full-fledged women in the traditional sense.

Beowoof February 9, 2011 at 10:41 pm

I live about 5 blocks from his district, it is just full of right wing shit heads and ass hats. And all I can to them is fuck you.

And I am sure all of Buffalo says Chris, Fuck you very much.

Lascauxcaveman February 10, 2011 at 2:02 am

Oooohh … four blocks would have been that much closer.

Beowoof February 10, 2011 at 10:44 am

The proximity to this guys district and his mind numbing constituents is a burden and believe me, 5 blocks is too close, 4 blocks could make me suicidal.

aguacatero February 9, 2011 at 10:52 pm

Congressman Lee should never have borrowed his tail-chasing scheme from Jerry Lundegard, William H. Macy's character from Fargo.

zappadoo76 February 9, 2011 at 10:56 pm

The guy had to resign over this? In Europe this would be nothing. Even if the guy were a conservative Christian Democrat. In America we get all huffy about stuff like this while pushing sex in the movies and on TV all the time.

Did you ever think there was something wrong with us as a people?

TheMightyHaltor February 9, 2011 at 11:10 pm

I agree. Which is why I wouldn't be surprised if this is just the tip of the sex iceberg for this guy. The odds that he just started trolling the internets for some strange in the last month is unlikely. He's bailing before anyone can dig any deeper.

zappadoo76 February 9, 2011 at 11:13 pm

This could be. But consider Eliot Spitzer, who had to resign from the Governorship of NY because he did a little whoring. Now he's a teevee pundit. It's the contradiction that bothers me.

Crank_Tango February 10, 2011 at 1:14 am

he did a little whoring and now he's a tv pundit–where's the contradiction?

ShaveTheWhales February 9, 2011 at 11:21 pm

Well, despite the fact that I don't think extra-marital hanky-panky should be a big deal for politicians (or anybody), it's still true that this story is just amazingly stupid.

Trolling Craigslist, posing as a fucking LOBBYIST? Fuck me. I think that even in Europe, there might be some negative response to such a dose of stupid.

Negropolis February 10, 2011 at 12:04 am

Maybe you're not bothered by rank hypocrisy, but many others are. You can fuck a bevy of escorts in the back of a club, if you'd like, but don't go telling everyone else they are evil for screwing outside of marriage.

Unless you're a congressman, rapper/rocker, or football player, I'm not going to lie to you; it' going to be pretty difficult to arrange.

He had to resign once the Capitol Hill Police saw the massive guns he was smuggling into the chamber.

mourningnmerica February 9, 2011 at 11:20 pm

This guy is freakin' Nostradamus. He actually saw into the future when he told the Craigslist ho that he was a divorced lobbyist. Or maybe he just figured that it would be true by the time she responded. But with this kind of predictive ability, shouldn't we put him in charge of the Fed?

horsedreamer_1 February 10, 2011 at 9:51 am

In the year 2000, a Republican Congressman will resign… for pursuing extramarital relations, with a woman.

In the year 2000!

Negropolis February 9, 2011 at 11:45 pm

O.M.G.

The internet is an abomination. It's turning grown-assed men into 15-year-olds. That pose is straight-out conspicuous, 21-Century myspace douchebaggery.

I know it's him, but that head and face does not match the body. It's so strange and disturbing.

Negropolis February 9, 2011 at 11:49 pm

BTW, I think it's pretty clear that this has got to be the tip of the iceberg, from him. From his very own emails, he's done this before.

It's really kind of ironic the woman that put out the original add attracted exactly what she said she didn't want to. Actually, maybe that's not ironic, at all. Maybe, that's just the internet; 'cause this guy ain't just a toad (look at that face), he's a toad-and-a-half.

Let this be a lesson for republican representatives. If you want to keep your job: Suck off random dudes in an airport or have Nuns rub shit loaded diapers in your face. Resigning for simply chatting up chicks on the internet wouldn't even get you a job on Fox. This guy just doesn't quite understand how to be a republican. Heh, he might as well be a Dem.

After playing Saruman and Dracula in the movies, I guess being a Congressman just wasn't exciting enough to keep him interested.

Hipple, Rev. Paul T. February 10, 2011 at 8:00 am

We might have asked him to stay had his picture shown any evidence of BDSM proclivities, or an inclination towards any number of unusual paraphilias. However, as the picture clearly shows, is mainstream sexual appetites are not consistent with those of the republican congressional caucus. Our reputation is cultivated carefully. He just isn't a good fit for us.

Anthr_DCLwyr3d February 10, 2011 at 10:10 am

We shouldn't let this story die too quickly. First of all, where is he taking that photo? That doesn't look like a home bathroom…it looks like the men's room at some conference center hotel…was he sneaking in some shots during CPAC coffee breaks at the Shoreham? Probably not, but let's start a rumor anyway.
