There is no joy in Batavia tonight. Lee represented the area of Western New York state up near Canada, it looks like his 26th District was between Buffalo and Rochester.
Details are still emerging, but it seems he’s married and was trolling for women on Craigslist, with a shirtless picture of himself as bait. Apparently as soon as Boehner heard about it he blew his lid and leaned on Lee to go.
Aside from the obvious amusement factor, there’s two weird things. I mean, the guy really thought nobody would ever notice? And, since when does a GOP sex scandal involve somebody in trouble over women? Sick,dude!
He’s a first-termer so it’s not like he leaves a huge gap, but being in NYC I didn’t hear much about him during the last election–Carl Palladino pretty much sucked up all the air for our crazy westerners news. Any reactions from our Western NYers?
Edit: So sorry, had the wrong window open. Please mods move this to MPSIMS.
