Congressman's Internet Fail

Dumbass, name your sock puppet someone else, use a fake pic, or better yet just become a cartoon character.

Rep. Christopher Lee resigned from office Wednesday just hours after a report claimed the married Republican congressman sent a shirtless photo of himself to a woman on Craigslist.

The New York congressman formally submitted a resignation letter to House Speaker John Boehner.

"It has been a tremendous honor to serve the people of Western New York. I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents. I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness," he said in a statement.

"The challenges we face in Western New York and across the country are too serious for me to allow this distraction to continue, and so I am announcing that I have resigned my seat in Congress effective immediately."

Boehner told Fox News that he did not have any conversation with Lee pressuring him to resign.

Good thing we got this guy out. He's too stupid to walk and chew gum.

No word on what Mrs. Lee says, I mean did she send him out scouting for a third? I don't have a pic so we may never know if it would have been good gay. We'd like to think so seeing he was a Republican and all.

Personally I always feel like an extra wheel at these things.

Hat Tip: Hot Air.
