Washington, DC -- A New York  Congressman has abruptly resigned after a report surfaced that he flirted online despite being married.

Representative Christopher Lee, a Republican, quit after the gossip site Gawker.com posted a bare-chested photo of Lee that he apparently sent a woman he met on Craigslist. Lee reportedly told the 34-year-old woman he was single and worked as a lobbyist. He described himself as a "fit, fun, classy guy."

The woman googled his name, realized he lied and leaked their e-mail exchanges to Gawker.
