Gawker.com Takes Down A Congressman

By Art Gallagher

New York Congressman Christopher Lee (R-Buffalo Area) resigned his seat in the House of Representatives today three hours after the off-beat news website gawker.com revealed that he sent a shirtless photo of himself to a women seeking a date via Craiglists.

Lee, 46 and married,  told the woman who tipped off gawker.com that he was a 39 year old divorced lobbyist.  The woman ratted Lee out to gawker after she googled him and found that he was lying  about his age and occupation.

If any MMM readers have topless photos of Frank Pallone or Rush Holt, please send them in.  Please, no topless photos of Nancy Pelosi.

    If the media would apply the same standards to Democrats, half the Dem Congressmen would be gone

    Of course Chris…lets not take responsibility for a republicans sleazy actions…just make sure you get a tit for tat with the dems. YOU are what’s wrong with this country.

  6. Chris said at 10:58 pm on February 10th, 2011:

    Rick, we Republicans took responsibility and agreed he had to resign. (as we did about Larry Craig or Mark Foley)

    Now what did you do about Bill Clinton? John Edwards? Kwame Kilpatrick? David Paterson? Gavin Newsom? Roosevelt Dobbins? Gary Condit? Barney Frank? Ted Kennedy? And the list goes on and on…

  7. Rick Ambrosia said at 8:02 am on February 11th, 2011:

    Hmmm..Lets see Chris…Bill Clinton stood an impeachment trial, John Edwards was disgraced and run out of the field, Gary Condit didn’t run for reelection, David Patterson was not allowed to run for reelection. and the list goes on and on….

    What happened to Larry Craig? Nothing. Tap, tap, tap.

  8. Chris said at 11:44 pm on February 11th, 2011:

    D’s never accepted Clinton’s faults, and still consider him innocent. John Edwards left the Senate to run for VP, he was never disgraced by his own party. Larry Craig quit.

    This is not a party issue- it’s a gender issue. You guys just love photographing your most embarassing body parts and displaying them where your mommies told you not to.
