First Massa the tickler, then Alesi's lawsuit, now this!
The married Lee resigns after being caught trolling for women on Craigslist. He didn't let any grass grow: no sooner did the Craigslist item break than he announced his resignation.
Update - 6:22 pm
Rottenchester (see comments) put his finger on it: "If everyone who cheated on their spouse resigned from Congress, DC would be a ghost town."
And it's a woman, and she's over 18, and he resigns?
But here's the thing we really can't figure out. Here's a relatively young, nice-looking guy who's a member of Congress and a multi-millionaire. Forgive a momentary lapse into frat-house speak, but he can be getting laid something rotten down in Washington, without even trying. And he's looking for action on Craigslist?
See, kids, this is where we self-styled political sophisticates who think we understand the workings of the political world and can anticipate behavor and events will always be in the dark.
We never make allowance for the possibility of total, stupefying, stupidity on the part of political figures. We never anticipate or make allowance for the stupidity factor. It's our blind spot. So we're left gobsmacked at news of an Alesi lawsuit, or Lee's Craigslist activity.
