Weasel Alert: Congress Chris Lee resigns after cheating on his wife on Craigslist

Oh man, is this guy stupid!  Congressman Chris Lee (R-NY) is a 46 year old married man, who was going around answering ads on Craigslist like he was a divorced 39 year old.  Needless to say he got busted big time and had to resign.  You can read all the gory details here.

What is it about public figures on the left and the right, that makes them think they can privately cheat on their spouses? Hellooooo, what part of PUBLIC figure do they not understand?

The Other McCain makes two great points.
First: (Via Memeorandum.) Let me explain something: If you want to be a member of Congress and screw around, join the Democratic Party. You can screw around all you want and no problem, if you’re a Democrat. But you can’t do that and be a Republican member of Congress.
Amen to that.  Republicans should have figured it out by now, the media will never give them the wiggle room they give Democrats, even if they abandon all morals like Democrats.
Second: UPDATE: Fastest scandal ever! The Internet not only makes it easier for cheaters to cheat, it makes it easier for cheaters to get caught, and the rapidity with which the damning evidence becomes public tends to accelerate the resignation.
Thank goodness, no need for a Charlie Rangle swan song.

I would like to add a third point.  What was he hoping to find on Craigslist?  Isn't Craigslist full of murderers and prostitutes?

thanks for the commentary/refs...

disgusting and disheartening - good riddance - can't lead and speak to personal responsibility if this is what's going on (ref "become a dem wherein nobody cares")

The picture of him in the mirror holding the cellphone is internet hip. What a credit to popular culture he is. Are you all sure it is a negative for the Republicans? Anyhow--Craiglist has some trade, under-the-table labor ads and even some politics; as well as what you mentioned.
