More details are emerging about the Craigslist scandal surrounding former Congressman Chris Lee, RadarOnline.com has learned, and they possibly explain why he resigned so quickly after the initial story broke early this month.
It turns out that the married-with-children Lee wasn’t just searching for women on Craigslist, he was also exchanging emails with transgender women, reports Gawker, the website that broke the initial story.
In new revelations Saturday, Gawker revealed that two D.C.-area transgender women have contacted the site, claiming they exchanged emails with Lee.
One sent in an ad that Lee allegedly posted on Craigslist seeking transgender women while the other revealed a never-before-seen photograph she says Lee sent her.
According to one of the women, she corresponded with Lee by email several times and he told her that he’d dated a transsexual woman while “in college in California.”
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Lee met Yesha Callahan on Craislist and the two exchanged numerous messages before she took her story to Gawker.
Lee resigned his seat within hours of the scandal breaking.
