Apparently she's been inundated by the media but would rather not indulge them.
The woman who provided Chris Lee's now-infamous shirtless photo of himself to Gawker after first meeting the congressman on Craigslist had gone on Craigslist as a joke.
That's according to TheLoop21.com, an online African-American interest news site, which claims it landed an exclusive interview with Lee's online temptress.
The woman agreed to speak to the little-known website on the condition of anonymity.
The nameless woman spoke with Washington, D.C.-based freelance journalist Danielle Belton, who is TheLoop21.com's money and politics editor. Belton explained that while she and the woman aren't friends, they run in the same circles.
"D.C. is kind of small," Belton told The Buffalo News. "It looks big. Everyone knows everybody. ... By virtue of the fact that I'm African-American and a professional and she is African-American and a professional ... that's how it happened."
The woman, a single, 34-year-old government worker described by Belton as a "leggy glamazon," put up a post on Craigslist's women seeking men last month asking,"Will someone prove to me not all CL men look like toads?"...
"Chances are he's probably met more women online and you know, cheaters eventually get caught," she told TheLoop21. "He didn't have to resign. He made that choice himself."
She told TheLoop21 there is a lesson to be learned.
"The lesson is, if you're going to do dirt, do it anonymously. People cheat everyday, but only dumb people get caught."
"She's hoping this will blow over," Belton said.An ironic choice of words.
Leading us to:
None of the details so far reported suggest any official impropriety in Lee's Craigslist flirtation. But New York's Daily News reports that he "was one of several junior GOP lawmakers" (elected in 2008) whom Speaker John Boehner had "cautioned to 'knock it off' " over their "partying antics with female lobbyists." That's as specific as the Daily News report gets.
Along with the borderline breach of marital vows, Lee apparently lied to the lady from Craigslist. He "identified himself as a 39-year-old divorced lobbyist," according to Gawker. He's actually 46 and still married, though who knows how long that'll last?
The most fascinating detail is his claim to be a lobbyist. Apparently members of Congress are in such low repute that he didn't think anyone would go out with him if he owned up to being one.
