Buffalo Congressman Resigns Over Craigslist Scandal


Buffalo area Congressman Christopher Lee has resigned from Congress following revelations that he emailed a shirtless photograph of himself to a woman seeking a relationship on Craigslist.
In his resignation letter, the married Congressman said he had made profound mistakes and was seeking forgiveness from his family, staff and constituents.
