Gossip site Gawker outed Rep. Lee for lying about his marital status and sending the uber-sexy topless photo seen above to a woman he found in Craigslist's personals section. The married politician almost immediately decided to leave office citing "the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents."
Now, I assume that Chris is a regular reader of the Tosh.0 blog, so I'd appreciate it if the rest of you could stop reading here so I could have a minute with him myself…
Come on, dude? Craigslist? You know why most political sex scandals involve call girls and prostitutes? Because you pay those people money. And money keeps people quiet. That's like Politics 101. Worst case scenario, they try to blackmail you, you pay them more cash. It's a vicious cycle, but it's a cycle you can control.
And you used your personal Gmail account?? Are you kidding me? I use an old anonymous Hotmail account on Craigslist if I'm trying to find a used bookshelf. You didn't realize she'd be able to Google your email address and find out who you were? What should of given that away is that Google runs Gmail. You know, Gmail — that thing you're using to send pictures of your congressional pecs to strangers.
And let's talk about those pecs for a second. Sure, you're in decent shape, but a tight T-shirt wasn't good enough for you? Or you don't have a pic of you at the beach? I'm not a woman, but I'm pretty sure if I had to define the word "creepy" with a picture, it'd be of a middle-aged man taking a shirtless photo of himself in a mirror with his cell phone. The flexing was a nice touch though.
But two years in Congress was a hell of a run for a guy who's this stupid. You're like a kid who joins the Mafia and immediately starts bragging about all the crimes he commits. Two years is a long time to not get whacked. You should take pride in that …the same way you take pride in your body.
We'll miss you, man…
Alright, hopefully no one but former Congressman Chris Lee read that. It got pretty real.
