Why Did Lee Quit So Quickly?

In what might have been the shortest political sex scandal ever, Rep. Chris Lee (R-NY) resigned from office just hours after news broke about him trolling for dates online. Now we may know why.

Gawker: "In the past 10 days, two D.C.-area transgender women contacted us, each with a separate story about exchanging emails with the ex-congressman. One sent us an ad that Lee allegedly posted on Craigslist in search of trans women; the other sent us a never-before-seen photo that she says Lee sent her after they started chatting by email. Taken together, they present a possible explanation to those who have wondered why such a tame 'sex scandal' forced Lee's hand so quickly."
