Gawker makes shocking new claims about our former congressman

posted by Howard B. Owens in Chris Lee, NY-26.

"New to area. Very fit classy, successful guy. 39, 6ft 190lbs, blond/blue. Smooth hard body. Looking for a sexy ts/cd that i can spoil. I promise not to disappoint."

In a shocking new post, this is the ad Gawker.com suggests  ex-Congressman Chris Lee posted on Craigslist in January.

However, almost by writer Remy Stern's own admission, holes could be poked into the "evidence" that Lee was seeking transgender and transvestite hook-ups through the free classified site. Yet, there's enough to the story that makes it hard to ignore.

Hardest to disregard is the new photo published by Gawker that seems to show a shirtless Lee posing in front of a mirror. It's very similar to an image Gawker published with the initial story about the married Lee allegedly trolling Craigslist for dates. Still, it's different enough in key ways, making makes it hard to believe it's a PhotoShop counterfeit.

Stern reports that the photo was submitted by a transvestite prostitute, whom Gawker calls "Holly."

"The first thing Holly sent us was a never-before-seen picture of Chris Lee's now-familiar torso and red Blackberry. She edited the picture to obscure the Congressman's face, however, and printed her e-mail address over his chest. (We have covered up the address in the photo above.)" If we wanted to publish the unedited image, Holly explained, we'd have to pay her for it."

As for the ad above, Stern claims that it came from a transgender woman who said she found the ad posted on Craigslist and later figured out that the person who posted it was allegedly Lee.

Read the whole thing and see what you think about the claims.

That’s a great political platform, Chris. Now you just need to spell your name right. ;) The guy in the left pic is not as beefy…and I’m not seeing that cocky little heft in bicep Chris Lee has goin on. Plus the MO is all wrong. Chris sent his photo AFTER initial contact…he didn’t leave it up on Craigslist for everyone to see.

Who cares anymore? He likes trannies and queens. He's now a private citizen now and can spoil all the ladyboys he wants.

Oh for sure Kevin.... the only reason he would have quit so quickly is because there is alot more to this... otherwise it doesn't make sense. Not that I care to hear about it anymore- but I'm sure there are worse things that have yet to come out.
