Rep. Christopher Lee (R-NY) had big plans:
But then he went on Craigslist, and--pffft...
According to USA Today:
Rep. Chris Lee, R-N.Y., abruptly resigned Wednesday after the gossip website Gawker disclosed that the married congressman had e-mailed a shirtless picture of himself to a woman he met through Craigslist.
Shortly after arriving in Washington in 2009, (Lee) supported legislation that would have barred members of Congress from receiving a scheduled pay raise, according to The Almanac of American Politics. He recently joined dozens of GOP lawmakers in pushing legislation that sought to restrict abortions by eliminating tax breaks to employers if the health coverage they provide covers abortions.
Congressional career: aborted.
