UPDATED: Shirtless-gate

Here's a nice dose of political comedy:
Gawker catches Rep. Christopher Lee (R-NY) trolling for dates on Craigslist, where the married lawmaker allegedly posed as divorced "lobbyist" and "fit fun classy guy" and posted photos to prove it.

After initially refusing comment, Lee's spokesman said that the congressman believed he'd been hacked.

Unfortunately, the emails "were sent more than a week before the alleged hack. The shirtless photo -- which, according to metadata contained in the picture, was taken in Washington, D.C. -- was taken with a Blackberry, the same mobile device that Lee uses, which means the hacker would have also had to access the photos on Lee's phone.
Full Gawker story is here. So are some nice pictures, including the one below, which is hilarious. I believe the Congressman from New York has a point to raise, if you know what I mean.

Was he really hacked? Hard to tell. It's very possible he was, and its also possible the below picture was photoshopped. However, his story really doesn't add up; it was taken with his personal BlackBerry (and you really have to ask, hacked or not, why the hell do you even have those pictures?), the e-mail accounts have been associated with Lee himself (he even confirmed it), and, I mean, the guy is pretty fit for a 46-year old, why shoudn't he flaunt it? 'Cept for the wife and all...

"I also support DADT and fight against abortion rights" 
****UPDATE****

Representative Lee has just resigned his seat. I assume he'll also be resigning from marriage.
