Former Rep. Chris Lee may have been searching for transgender women on Craigslist.

The Craigslist cruising of former New York Republican Rep. Chris Lee may have been more expansive than first reported.

According to an investigation published Friday by Gawker, the same publication whose earlier expose led to Lee’s immediate resignation, the former congressman may have been searching online for transgender women.

The publication says that since the initial news about Lee broke, two transgender women from the D.C. area contacted them.

“One sent us an ad that Lee allegedly posted on Craigslist in search of trans women; the other sent us a never-before-seen photo that she says Lee sent her after they started chatting by email,” according to Gawker. “Taken together, they present a possible explanation to those who have wondered why such a tame ’sex scandal’ forced Lee’s hand so quickly.”

Craigslist deletes personal ads after seven days, but Gawker was able to confirm that a posting made on January 14 was titled, “Sexy Classy guy for passable TS/CD – m4t – 39 (Cap Hill).”

The content of the post cannot be verified, but according to one of Gawker’s sources it read, “New to area. Very fit classy, successful guy. 39, 6ft 190lbs, blond/blue. smooth hard body. Looking for a sexy ts/cd that i can spoil. I promise not to disappoint.”

“Revealingly, the headline and ad itself contain many elements from Lee’s first known Craigslist flirtation, including the words ‘fit’ and ‘classy.’ It dates to the same evening Lee exchanged emails with the woman we told you about two weeks ago,” said Gawker. “And it even featured Lee’s infamous shirtless Blackberry picture, albeit cropped to hide Lee’s face.”

The source told Gawker that she e-mailed back and forth with Lee, and that he told her that he had dated a transgender woman while “in college in California.” Gawker notes that Lee attended business school at Chapman University in California.

She e-mailed Lee on January 21 to say that she knew who he was. Lee never responded. He e-mailed his staff that day to claim that his e-mail account had been hacked.

The other source sent Gawker a photo strikingly similar to the one that was made infamous by the initial expose. She said that Lee had responded to a “trans for men” ad she had posted, but ultimately did not share the e-mails she claimed were sent. Lee resigned from Congress citing “profound mistakes” on February 9.

    • We "democrats" want to legalize pot, gay marriage and promote the rights of the poor. According to the right, we are the scumbags.

      That's why it doesn't really matter when we get caught doing something pervy and gay. But when a Republican does it, it's double the lulz! Because they're always crusading against gays and moral impropriety while receiving anal butterdowns from smoothly waxed Brazillian muscle-boys when the media isn't looking.

    • Well now you have someone else to be proud of...lol.

      "Poor Gordon Hintz. He should have fled with the Wisconsin State Democrat Senator Fleebaggers to Chicago. According to Gateway Pundit, Hintz arrested for sexual misconduct in connection with the Appleton prostitution sting with the Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor.

  • As a Christian pastor who has declared the practice of homosexuality a demonic lifestyle choice, I find this man rather attractive.

    • Exactly, it's a free country. However, his constituents might not understand and therefor he hides his true self from them.
