Let's All Be Thankful This Dipstick Wasn't Pants-less

 From ABC News:

"Rep. Christopher Lee, R-N.Y., abruptly resigned from the House of Representatives Wednesday afternoon after a report emerged that he had sent flirtatious e-mails, including one with a bare-chested photo of himself, to a woman he met on Craigslist."

The woman, who wasn't his wife, seized her 15 minutes of fame, and sent the photo to an internet gossip site known for lurid stories about politicians and their hook-ups.

Soon after, Congressman [email protected] resigned.

Let's review: The illusion of online anonymity strikes again to fell a politician you've never heard of, in sex scandal with no sex, making Congressman [email protected] the newest GOP Cone of Shame Award winner.

Gee. If only Congressman [email protected] had a homosexual lover running a prostitution ring out of his condominium, then he could've kept his job.

Good points, another sex scandal with no sex, and yes, the guy would have kept his job if he had been a Dem.

Far more important than the alleged scandal is the depth of stupidity this guy displayed. You should absolutely resign for being a complete moron.

Maybe next time he will wise up, run as a dem, use a blue dress with a cigar holder and make millions.

Every headline I have seen starts with the letters GOP. If he was a dem , good luck finding his party affiliation.
