A Republican congressman, Christopher Lee quit his job today. Seems the congressman had a nice camera phone, you know, the kind that was capable of taking pictures of the congressman as he posed in front a mirror half naked. And apparently its the kind of phone capable of sending said pictures directly online, as in this case, sharing them on Craigslist
We’re not sure what phone was used, but from the looks of the congressman’s reflection, he’s holding a red phone, probably a blackberry or something by AT&T. Whoever it is though, some phone company is in for some free advertising. Way to go congressman!
Oh, and for a little comic relief, here’s what the Congressman had to say before stepping down;
“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,” Lee said in a written statement. “I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents. I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness.”
Explaining to his wife why he posed and took these pictures, then uploaded them to the “Women Seeking Men” section of Craigslist is one thing. Explaining why he described himself as a “divorced” “lobbyist” and a “fit fun classy guy” is another. What I’m interested in however, is how he’s gonna react when she takes his little red phone away!
Now that’s gonna be the real story…
