The Craigslist Congressman

Gawker 1, politicians 0. The gossip site has a juicy scoop about New York Rep. Christopher Lee, who is married but appears to have told a woman he met on Facebook that he was a divorced lobbyist—and sent her a shirtless picture of himself to boot. After a brief correspondence in January, the woman realized Lee wasn’t divorced and wasn’t a lobbyist, so she cut off contact and sent her exchange to Gawker. The Republican’s office says the congressman is happily married, and suggested that his email might have been hacked.
