Chris Lee Craiglist Congressman Quits, Who Will Star in Lifetime Movie?


gawker-chris-leeCongressman Chris Lee has resigned after getting caught sending a shirtless photo of himself to a woman on Craiglist. But the big question is who will play Chris Lee in the Lifetime movie version of this political scandal?  You KNOW there will be a Lifetime movie of this incident, right?

The married New York congressman abruptly resigned Wednesday, saying he regretted actions that had hurt his family and others.

Gossip website Gawker found the shirtless pictures of the congressman. The website broke the story of Lee, a Republican who is very married and father of a young son.  Rep. Lee e-mailed the photo you see in this post to a woman he met via Craiglist.

Who will play Chris Lee in the movie? Rick Schroder from NYPD Blue might be a good pick.  Or William Petersen formerly of CSI?

Who would you pick to play Chris Lee?  The real Congressman Lee made the following statement to the media:

“I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents,” Lee said in a statement posted on his congressional website. “I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness.”

Update: @cyn3matic just tweeted “Gary Sinise, who is a GOPer” GOOD CALL!
