Shirtless photo prompts Senate rep Chris Lee to quit

GOP Rep. Chris Lee has resigned after pics of him shirtless found their way onto the internet. Gossip website Gawker broke the story in which the Senate rep allegedly emailed a shirtless pic of himself to a woman he met on Craigslist.

He posted a message to his own website this evening, reading: “I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents.” He continued: “The challenges we face in Western New York and across the country are too serious for me to allow this distraction to continue, and so I am announcing that I have resigned my seat in Congress effective immediately.”
