Fastest. Scandal. Ever.

Earlier today, Fox News reported that “N.Y. Rep Declines Comment on Claim He Sent Shirtless Photo to Woman on Craigslist:”

Rep. Christopher Lee is declining to comment on a report claiming the married Republican congressman sent a shirtless photo of himself to a woman on Craigslist.

Lee, asked by Fox News about the report Wednesday afternoon as he was walking to his car, said he was not willing to talk about the issue, adding “I have to work this out with my wife.”

And evidently, he’ll have plenty of time to do so: “Rep. Chris Lee resigns ‘effective immediately.’ maybe fastest scandal ever,” Rick Klein of ABC tweeted a few minutes ago.
