GOP Rep. Chris Lee Abruptly Resigns Over Apparent Craigslist Indiscretions



Text  



In response to a controversy that barely had time to develop, Rep. Christopher Lee (R., NY) has abruptly resigned from the House after the web site Gawker reported on an alleged romantic exchange between Lee and a Maryland woman over craigslist.org.

Lee is married, and after initial denials told Fox News little more than an hour ago that the exchange was something he would have to “work out” with his wife. In a statement announcing his resignation, Lee apologized to his family and staff for “profound mistakes” and  promised “to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness.”
