Chris Lee

By Eileen Buckley & Ashley Hassett


Amherst, NY – The Maryland woman who received an emailed photo of a shirtless Chris Lee claims she put her ad on Craigslist as a joke. The woman also told Gawker.com she believes there may be more to the former Congressman's story that forced him to resign.

As WBFO'S Eileen Buckley reports, citizens living in the 26th Congressional District in Amherst reacted to Lee's behavior.
