“Hello, I’m Congressman Chris Lee and I have the great privilege of representing New York’s 26th District.”
Well, not anymore. Republican Chris Lee resigned from his United States House seat only a few hours after a gossip site caught him in a bare-chested scandal.
Gawker reports Lee posed as a divorced, 39 year old lobbyist-- The real story? None of these are true for the 46 year old and married congressman.
After several Washington sex scandals in the past, a writer for Zap2it**** asks- why?
“Seriously - how could someone be so stupid? Of course cheating (or trying to arrange some cheating) on your spouse is bad, but if you are a public figure, why on God's green earth would you send a shirtless photo of yourself to some random Craigslist person? Good gravy.”
Following the story a House clerk delivered this message.
“I hereby give notice of my resignation from the United States House of Representatives effective 5 pm eastern standard time Wednesday February 9th, 2011.”
Lee’s resignation came after the shirtless pictures of himself posing surfaced in response to a Craigslist ad. Another sex scandal in Congress? Maybe not. A blogger from Slate**** says the congressman’s actions are pretty un-sensational as far as Washington affairs go.
“Unlike other straying legislators, he was reportedly looking for non-commercial, consensual, and heterosexual sex—and he didn't even get especially close to consummating his would-be affair. The only really good part is good because its banality is in a different register.”
Maureen O’Connor was the blogger who broke the story after the woman who was involved in the scandal contacted her. She told CNN’s Piers Morgan the whole thing was sloppy on Lee’s part.
“..It’s really surprising how he barely covered his tracks. It was the flimsiest of lies that he’s a lobbyist not a congressman, real pictures, his real email account that he uses not only to correspond with his family and friends, bits the same email address that he registered his Facebook page under so this was a very easily found out lie and easily uncovered if anything its shocking how little effort he took to cover his tracks.”
The congressman tried to mop up the mess only three hours after the scandal hit the wires. A political analyst on WKBW in Buffalo, New York said resigning was Lee’s best option.
“I think that’s remarkable crisis control. I think that regardless of whether it’s true or not, I think Congressman Lee saw it as something that’s going to distract from the business at hand on Washington especially for his constituents here in New York and by resigning he converted a hot political issue into a personal issue and now we move on.”
After Lee’s topless take down, it’s left the House one seat short and gearing up for a special election fight.

Silvio Berlusconi is facing more sex scandal charges after phone recordings were obtained by prosecutors. Al Jazeera reports on conversations between the Italian Prime Minister and a businessman arranging escorts.
“In one of the conversations, Silvio Berlusconi asked him specifically for women that aren’t taller than himself -- and he’s 5’5”. In another one, he boasted that he spent the night with eight different girls, although he could have had 11. In another one, he said ‘Well, there are 40 women sleeping in my house and I just can’t get rid of them.”
The recordings were among 100,000 telephone conversations released to the Italian media. But the PM is defiant. He told an Italian newspaper:
"My private life is not a crime."
The International Business Times has one of his most astounding quotes...
"Berlusconi, in one of the conversations, said that he was unable to find enough time to spend with his companions, due to his schedule as the prime minister. ‘Oh, to pass the days with my babes; I'm just the prime minister in my spare time,’ he allegedly said in one conversation.”
For the first time, this tape discloses that Berlusconi paid the women he slept with. This contradicts his prior insistence that he has never paid for sex.
Fox News reports, the tapes gave Berlusconi’s opponents more reasons to accuse the PM of abusing his power.
“They allege he used government planes to transport women to his private party. But Berlusconi said he’s innocent. He just has a weakness for beautiful women.”
Berlusconi is no stranger to scandals. But a writer for The First Post says this newest scandal has particularly bad timing.
“Berlusconi is already accused of paying for sex with a minor and abusing his office. More urgently, however, he is also struggling to keep Italy's economy's afloat. Last week Berlusconi got an €54 bn austerity package through parliament, triggering angry protests and increasing domestic pressure...”
Opposition party officials are demanding Berlusconi’s resignation.
The Telegraph quotes one member of parliament, saying:
"No one understands why the premier is dedicating a good deal of his time to questions not related to fighting the economic crisis and relaunching the economy.”
However, The Financial Times says, he is not likely to step down.
“Behind the scenes, opposition politicians admit that so far they have had little success in persuading parliamentary colleagues to abandon their 74-year-old leader, despite the public humiliation of having transcripts of his sometimes lurid telephone conversations ... plastered across national newspapers.”
New details have emerged in the cheating scandal of Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore.

British Prime David Cameron has had his first Cabinet shake-up. Secretary of Defense Liam Fox resigned Friday amid claims that his friend Adam Werritty got too involved with official business. The BBC explains part of the problem.
“Adam Werritty was Fox’s best man, but he was much more than that ... Though not employed by the government or the Tory party, his business card said he was an advisor too. Fox denied it despite the revelation the two may have met on no fewer than 18 trips abroad, including in Dubai, Singapore and Sri Lanka.”
The charges against Fox don’t end there. There are accusations he and Werritty tried to set up their own private investment firm in Sri Lanka. The Guardian points out— this is against the UK’s official policy.
“The government has adopted an arm's-length policy on Sri Lanka, calling for an independent inquiry into alleged war crimes. Since 2006 [the United Kingdom] has also had a policy to limit development work to urgent humanitarian assistance and ‘de-mining’ areas affected by the civil war.”
But trips abroad with Fox were not the only problem. As The Telegraph writes, Fox also faces allegations he used his position to better his friend’s financial situation.
“Detailed disclosures showed Mr. Werritty’s activities were funded by companies and individuals who stood to benefit from Government decisions … a City tycoon who provided money for Mr. Werritty revealed that he had personally been asked by the Defence Secretary to give cash to his friend’s firm.”
Even for Fox’s fellow Conservatives, that disclosure was the final straw. The Daily Mail suggests pressure from within the party led to Fox’s decision to step down.
“Senior figures on the Tory backbenches had also let it be known that they thought [Dr Fox] should go. … Knowing he might be forced out, Dr Fox telephoned David Cameron at around 2.30pm to say he would quit.”
In an interview with ITN, Prime Minister David Cameron avoids talking about the scandal, but expresses his regret over Fox’s resignation.
“I quite understand why Liam Fox has decided to resign, though obviously I’m sorry to see him go, because he did a good job at the Ministry of Defense, clearing up the mess left by the last government and giving good leadership to that department particularly while we’ve been in action in Libya and also, of course, in Afghanistan as well.”
Cameron has appointed Transportation Secretary Philip Hammond as Fox’s replacement. Liam Fox will retain his position as a Member of Parliament.
