Congressman Posts Shirtless Photos Online

Gawker catches Rep. Christopher Lee (R-NY) trolling for dates on Craigslist, where the married lawmaker allegedly posed as divorced "lobbyist" and "fit fun classy guy" and posted photos to prove it.

After initially refusing comment, Lee's spokesman said that the congressman believed he'd been hacked.

Unfortunately, the emails "were sent more than a week before the alleged hack. The shirtless photo -- which, according to metadata contained in the picture, was taken in Washington, D.C. -- was taken with a Blackberry, the same mobile device that Lee uses, which means the hacker would have also had to access the photos on Lee's phone."

Update: Lee told Fox News he was not willing to talk about the issue, adding "I have to work this out with my wife."

Update II: Lee resigns "effective immediately."
