NY Rep. Lee Resigns After Shirtless Photo

WASHINGTON (AP) - A New York congressman abruptly resigned his
seat Wednesday, saying he was quitting because he regretted actions
that have hurt his family and others.

The gossip website Gawker reported that Rep. Christopher Lee, a
married two-term Republican lawmaker, had sent a shirtless photo of
himself to a woman he met on Craigslist.

Lee said in an e-mailed statement that his resignation was effective immediately. The statement offered no confirmation or details of a Craigslist posting. In the e-mail, he says he regrets the harm his actions have caused his family, staff and constituents.
