Executive summary: Congressman from New York, resigned

Conservative Republican, who opposed the repeal of Don't-Ask-Don't-Tell, and voted to bar federal funding for abortions. Lee resigned from Congress after a shirtless picture of himself, mailed to a woman on Craigslist's "Women Seeking Men" forum, was leaked to Gawker. In correspondence the Congressman had lied about his occupation, age, and marital status, and had admitted dating other women.

[1] Remy Stern, "The Craigslist Congressman and the Crossdressing Prostitute", Gawker, 25 February 2011: "In the past two weeks, two DC-area transgender women contacted us, each with a separate story about exchanging emails with the ex-congressman. One sent us an ad that Lee allegedly posted on Craigslist in search of trans women; the other sent us a never before seen photo that she says Lee sent her after they started chatting by email. Taken together, they present a possible explanation to those who have wondered why such a tame 'sex scandal' forced Lee's hand so quickly."
