Oh, Chris Lee Was Also Messing Around In the Craigslist Transsexual Section

by Jack Stuef

Going for a  Golden Corral of Craigslist encounters.When Republican Congressman Chris Lee resigned a few weeks ago mere hours after Gawker published what appeared to be e-mails and a photo he sent to a lady on Craigslist about wanting to have an affair, it surprised people. People such as us. If a married diaperman such as David Vitter can survive and even be re-elected to the U.S. Senate after having weird relations with prostitutes, why should Chris Lee resign if all he did was ask a regular, not-prostitute lady on the Internet if she wanted to have an affair? Because he also asked the same thing in the “m4t” section. Yes, some odd e-mails forwarded to Gawker, Chris Lee may have also been offering himself to transexual women.

Revealingly, the headline and ad itself contain many elements from Lee’s first known Craigslist flirtation, including the words “fit” and “classy.” It dates to the same evening Lee exchanged emails with the woman we told you about two weeks ago. And it even featured Lee’s infamous shirtless Blackberry picture, albeit cropped to hide Lee’s face. Yes, that’s right: a member of Congress posted a personal ad seeking transsexuals and crossdressers and even included a picture of himself, all without thinking twice, apparently.

Is there any other kind of member of Congress? No.

Fiona said she found out who Lee was much the same way the other Craigslist correspondent did. “I copied and pasted his email into Facebook, and that’s when his picture of him and his wife and his little boy showed up. Then I clicked on the link and realized he was a politician from New York, and I was like OMG.”

Sounds like these ladies have the journalism skills to bring their extra equipment to Wonkette.

Unfortunately, Gawker’s story seems a little undermined by the fact that “both” apparent transsexual sources disappeared when Gawker looked into the matter more, including one who provided Gawker a photo of Lee she censored until Gawker gave her some of that scoop money the give people. But politicians having affairs with transsexuals they found on the Internet is always fun, so let’s just mark this one down in the fact column. [Gawker]

"and it turns out that Chris Lee loved chicks with dicks. That's the rest of the story…"

prommie February 28, 2011 at 11:54 am

Is he still alive?

Not_So_Much February 28, 2011 at 11:58 am

I join the rest of civilization in being completely unsurprised by this turn of events.

OC_Surf_Serf February 28, 2011 at 11:28 am

Ah, yes..the other (ghey) shoe drops…

Texan_Bulldog February 28, 2011 at 11:38 am

You mean the other size 18 red pump that trannies can only buy at Payless because Foot Locker (where they normally shop) doesn't seem to be able to accommodate these fine folks after-hour needs.

WunkRocker February 28, 2011 at 4:17 pm

Oh I thought this was the deal all along, else why would he resign so quickly. I figured there were several ladyboys in the woodpile.

donner_froh February 28, 2011 at 11:30 am

Ex-Congressman Lee is a real dog. If a more or less straight or deeply closeted guy wants company from a tranny the only honorable way to do it is to pay the tranny. Go to an escort site.

Trolling for free dick, even if it is 8.5 inches, fully functional, is just plain tacky.

nounverb911 February 28, 2011 at 11:30 am

"Oh, Chris Lee Was Also Messing Around In the Craigslist Transsexual Section"
Isn't that a requirement for the teabaggers?

PublicLuxury February 28, 2011 at 11:30 am

Take the sex where you can get it, Chris. When you're horny, you're horny. Sometimes a little spice is nice. At least you hasn't fucked a cat, that alone should make you elgilble for a state office. Stick with it, so to speak.

x111e7thst February 28, 2011 at 11:34 am

Nice avatar -glad you kept the old description

PublicLuxury February 28, 2011 at 11:44 am

Thank you. I'm going to change it back to the old avatar after we win this mess in Wisconsin. I'm a bitch and I don't see why I should alter my message. Being a bitch is a badge of honor. Many claim to be one but few achieve true bitchhoodness.

Chillwaver February 28, 2011 at 11:30 am

What do you get when you cross a RINO with a Trannie?

LesBontemps February 28, 2011 at 11:35 am

I dunno, but you should have extra towels on hand, probably.

Ann Coulter.

Bingo! Well done, my friend. I so wish I could give you 10 pee-pts…

Santorum certainly.

extra equipment Newest section on Craigslist

Sophist [APPLESAUCE] February 28, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Look, when he offered to check out that extra equipment she promised him, he thought she was talking about a Bowflex that was gathering dust in the corner of her apartment or something. It was an honest mistake.

LesBontemps February 28, 2011 at 11:31 am

I can haz Lou Reed for Congress now?

HistoriCat February 28, 2011 at 11:50 am

Hey babe – take a walk on the wild side.

PocketsTheClown February 28, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Ahaha no way!! Chris Lee is back in the game now!

mourningnmerica February 28, 2011 at 12:50 pm

My favorite post of the day. Touche.

"…until Gawker gave her some of that scoop money the give people. But politicians having affairs with transsexuals they found on the Internet is always fun…"

Politicians is always fun no matter what the doing.

Progressiveinga February 28, 2011 at 11:31 am

Phew! I was getting worried that maybe there wasn't any more to the story and this guy felt guilty for soliciting a natural born girl and really did want to spend more time w/ his family to make things right. Now, he's totally looking like a republican and all is right with the world. Tranny's Rule!

Boredw/Gravity February 28, 2011 at 11:32 am

Get a video of him placing $100,000 in bribe money into his freezer and you 've got a trifecta.

Crank_Tango February 28, 2011 at 11:32 am

Sources quoted the disgraced former Buffalo congressman as saying, "Aaaaah! Aaaaah! Dude looks like a lady!"

and, "Let's go hit the ballet." Also.

Crank_Tango February 28, 2011 at 11:38 am

And by ballet, of course I am referring to the Canadian Ballet, which may or may not be what you think it is.

Beowoof February 28, 2011 at 12:38 pm

I was going to say that was a rather obscure reference for those who may not have lived in Buffalo. Now you need a passport to fullfil your artistic fantasy.

DerrickWildcat February 28, 2011 at 11:33 am

If this would have came out first he'd still have his job.

WIDTAP February 28, 2011 at 11:33 am

…and here you were all worried about Republicans trending straight.

Weenus299 February 28, 2011 at 11:34 am

Indeed, this is why we haz jernalizm.

On a side note "Seeking an affair with a non-prostitute" is now the new "Spending more time with my family."

PublicLuxury February 28, 2011 at 11:34 am

I love the ultra-conservative's sex life. It is so much more interesting because they espouse 'family values'. Eeee cheee momma, what's it like to grow up in their homes?

chickensmack February 28, 2011 at 11:48 am

I wonder if they invoke "God" when having straight-line hetero vaginal sex with their wives.

Beowoof February 28, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Repressed sexuality has a way of spurting out into the open.

Mumbletypeg February 28, 2011 at 11:34 am

"Fit and classy fellow looking for Dr Girlfriend. Murderous Moppets optional."

SorosBot February 28, 2011 at 11:35 am

So to the "dead girl / live boy" misconduct which will actually lead to a Republican stepping down, we can ass "Chicks with dicks". Good to know. Meanwhile, a consensual non-marital blowjob will still be grounds for impeaching a Democrat.

ManchuCandidate February 28, 2011 at 11:36 am

Pooping in one's diaper is considered electoral "gold" if you're a hypocrite asshole GOPer in Louisiana.

Terry February 28, 2011 at 11:50 am

Maybe they impeached him because consensual non-marital blowjobs are just so…pedestrian.

GOPCrusher February 28, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Agreed. Compared to a poop fetish or getting kinky with some trannies or teenage boys, a heterosexual blowjob is fairly mild.

HistoriCat February 28, 2011 at 11:52 am

"we can ass "Chicks with dicks""

typo or most brilliant phrase ever?

SorosBot February 28, 2011 at 11:56 am

Hit the wrong key, but it does totally work.

deanbooth February 28, 2011 at 11:53 am

"we can ass" — Calling Dr. Freud… Dr. Freud to the spellchecker please.

comptoneffect February 28, 2011 at 11:55 am

It is obvious congressman Lee is a democrat but only joined the GOP for the gay/tranny sex.

undeterredbyreality February 28, 2011 at 11:35 am

This explains the reacharound photo.

hagajim February 28, 2011 at 11:36 am

Maybe Sheen has it right…you pay the hookers to go away – quietly.

LionelHutzEsq February 28, 2011 at 11:37 am

Clearly this was just a sad attempt by Congressman Lee to cover up his free-wheeling heterosexual cruising with something that would find a little more support among his fellow Republicans.

philpjfry February 28, 2011 at 11:38 am

what do ya know……a republican for equal opportunity

NorbertsRevenge February 28, 2011 at 11:38 am

Our founding fathers understood that the tree of Chris Lee must be refreshed from time to time with the butt of trannies.

Captain_Quark February 28, 2011 at 11:39 am

What else do you expect from a teabagger?

DaRooster February 28, 2011 at 11:40 am

Too bad these guys are too dumb to make up some anonymous Gmail account…

Probably taken.

HistoriCat February 28, 2011 at 11:54 am

Remember, these are Republicans. They probably need an email address from AOL.

Guppy06 February 28, 2011 at 1:21 pm

Hey, give him points for at least not using his @house.gov address.

I am shocked, I tell you, shocked! And, also, in addition, what does Joe Scarborough think about this? Oh, nobody got murdered? Never mind.

V572625694 February 28, 2011 at 11:58 am

Mike the Barnicle agrees. Mika's looking troubled, though.

ttommyunger February 28, 2011 at 12:15 pm

You would be too if you were the other woman and the guy was a married, six-foot four inch beady-eyed psychopath with a proven track record in unsolved homicides. O keep waiting for daddy “Z” to take him out as only the Russians know how to do so well.

FOX: BREAKING NEWS:
Was Chris Lee trying to infiltrate the notorious Radical Liberal D.C.Transsexual Union cartel?

HateMachine February 28, 2011 at 11:42 am

Calling bullshit. In line with our original observations by comparison to Vitter and Craig, if there had actually been a tranny involved Lee would have stayed in office. After a super-awkward press conference with his wife, of course.

DeeJayKitteh February 28, 2011 at 11:53 am

Have we actually seen a picture of his wife? Maybe she's walked a mile in their size 14 pumps and won't be so surprised, if you know what I mean.

GOPCrusher February 28, 2011 at 1:18 pm

And the requisite "turning his life over to Jeebus" mumbo-jumbo.

baconzgood February 28, 2011 at 11:43 am

I'd like to read this and snark but…..He's sooooooo dreamy I can't take my eyes off of the picture.

Gopherit February 28, 2011 at 11:44 am

Hey….maybe this was just Christian outreach and not Xtian reacharound.

An_Outhouse February 28, 2011 at 11:45 am

This explains Chris Lee's prolific use of red lipstick.

Callyson February 28, 2011 at 11:45 am

What I don't understand is why he took his chances on craigslist? Maybe he got off on the thrill of the risk of getting caught, but I'd think it would have been much easier just to ask one of his Republican colleagues for a referral. Can't be too hard to find someone who has a girl with something extra on speed-dial in this Congress…

HistoriCat February 28, 2011 at 11:55 am

Remember the Republican creed – "I got mine, you're on your own"

Beowoof February 28, 2011 at 12:44 pm

I hear the train station is close and Larry Craig was a regular.

chickensmack February 28, 2011 at 11:46 am

If this Fiona person "was like OMG," were they interviewing her in chat? And how do they know they weren't talking to Mark Foley?

Terry February 28, 2011 at 11:47 am

Now, this makes a lot more sense, doesn't it? Congress has lost a member who was definitely willing to work both sides of the aisle.

Why is it that the GOP'ers who preach about family values and the like turn out to be the ones with issues in those exact same areas?

Dudleydidwrong February 28, 2011 at 1:23 pm

All of them.

Lola. Is that a girl's name or a boy's name or…?

"It''s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world…" especially if you are lonely GOP congressman.

smokefilledroommate February 28, 2011 at 11:52 am

Isn't it listed in the Rules of the Republican Party that all affairs must be with partners who are (in some form) male?

Isn't that the truth. Quite a few nut jobs from my old home town. However, Rochester where I am at now does give Buffalo solid competition.

Maybe Chris needed a santorum fix. Can't get 'nuff of da stuff ya know.

mereoblivion February 28, 2011 at 12:05 pm

Somehow I'm comforted to know that Fiona "was like OMG." In fact, from now on I only want to hear from people who were, are, or will be like OMG. To be like OMG or not to be like OMG is no longer even the question.

Ray Davies had it going on when it came to Lola.

SorosBot February 28, 2011 at 2:17 pm

I went up to this girl, she said, Hi, my name is Fiona
I thought she'd be good to go with a little Funky Cold Medina
She said, I'd like a drink, I said, Ehm – ok, I'll go get it
Then a couple sips she cold licked her lips, and I knew that she was with it
So I took her to my crib, and everything went well as planned
But when she got undressed, it was a big old mess, Fiona was a man
So I threw him out, I don't fool around with no Oscar Meyer wiener
You must be sure that the girl is pure for the Funky Cold Medina

ttommyunger February 28, 2011 at 12:11 pm

I've provided my share of “Health Problems” over the years, but wasn't clever enough to come up with that moniker. Prolly cause I didn't have access to friends in high places like Morning Blow did, does. I'm still waiting for Mika's dad to give Joe some fatal “health problems”, I know he desperately wants to and I know he has the will, means, experience and knowledge. C'mon “Z”, America needs you.

If Republicans are really this stupid, why are they still in power?

GOPCrusher February 28, 2011 at 1:23 pm

And they say that Democrats are degenerates. LOL! Its not that you like a little she-male action on the side, its the fact that you lie about it and you look down your noses at people that do.

cheaphits February 28, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Suppose Chris's wifey has hustled him off to the doctor to be tested for STDs yet?

Then again, maybe she could care less, because he's not getting any, anytime soon.

Beowoof February 28, 2011 at 12:51 pm

I am sure he is heading over to Canada for the performances of the Canadian Ballet, featuring Ft. Erie's finest dance talent.

GOPCrusher February 28, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Do we know for a fact that Chris's wife is a woman?

Beowoof February 28, 2011 at 12:46 pm

As a former Buffaloian I can say the opportunity to find hot and horny polish girls, even 3:45AM was always an option. And a pleasing option at that. None of them had dicks though.

mourningnmerica February 28, 2011 at 12:52 pm

I knew there was something not "fishy" about this.

Extemporanus February 28, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Let this be a lesson to each and every one of you:

No matter how fucking hungry you might be, never order a BLT from Craigslist.

mourningnmerica February 28, 2011 at 1:02 pm

When Chris Lee says "C-O-L-A cola" he's not talking about cost of living increases in Social Security.

GregComlish February 28, 2011 at 2:20 pm

nice reach on that one.

Jukesgrrl February 28, 2011 at 1:13 pm

I'm still most offended by the fact that he won't pay.

PresBeeblebrox February 28, 2011 at 2:11 pm

GregComlish February 28, 2011 at 2:17 pm

I'm not going to judge the because he's into transsexuals.

I am, however, going to judge the guy because he's a hypocritical sack of shit. And I'm also judging him because he's so dense that he used his real email address while trolling for tranny sex on Craigslist as a member of Congress.

Allmighty_Manos February 28, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Let's see Bob Woodward unearth a scandal like that.

Thedongsofwar February 28, 2011 at 4:55 pm

Its like Chris Lee exchanged brains with a confused, 15 year-old digital idiot.

SaintRond February 28, 2011 at 5:01 pm

Anyone who deliberately gives a Republican a hard-on is going straight to hell when they die.

That said, I wish all men were trannies. Then there'd be no more wars and people would just be in a better mood.

Negropolis March 1, 2011 at 4:10 am

Honestly, who didn't see this coming?

Man, why don't these guys enter politics as Democrats? They could have all of the gay and transex their little hearts desire without the crushing and biting hypocrisy and guilt, the fools.
