Christopher Lee, the disgraced former anti-gay congressman who was caught sending shirtless pictures of himself to women on Craigslist and trolling the site for transgender women and cross-dressers, might have a new career.
Playgirl’s Daniel Nardicio wants Lee, from upstate New York, to be the centerfold for a shoot of “hot daddies” the magazine is producing.
“I think Chris would make a great centerfold for that issue,” Nardicio told the Village Voice’s Michael Musto. “He’s hot and hunky, and the fact that he likes trannies gives me a great idea for a shoot with Terry Richardson, whom I met last week backstage at Lady Gaga and was into the idea – in fact, Terry’s mother used to work at Playgirl.”
Nardicio said she’s thinking of call the issue “DILFS” or “Silver Foxes.”
“I think it’d be a great choice for Chris – a dismal political career could be topped off with a flamboyant finish,” Nardicio said. “Plus I feel Chris’ penchant for chicks with dicks makes him a shoo-in for porn, no?”
Lee resigned his office three hours after Gawker.com reported being contacted by a woman who said Lee had responded to a “women for men” ad that she’d placed on Craigslist. She provided flirtatious messages that Lee had sent her as well as a bare-chested shot he’d sent her of himself flexing in front of a mirror.
Lee described himself as 39, divorced, a lobbyist and a “fit, fun classy guy.” His real age is 46, and he and his wife have a young son.
Subsequent to Lee’s resignation, Gawker was contacted by two transgender women who also said they’d also encountered Lee on the site. Identified as Fiona and Holly, they said they’d come across posts from Lee in January looking for “a sexy ts/cd that i can spoil. I promise not to disappoint.”
Lee wrote to Fiona that he dated a transgender woman while at business school at Chapman University, Gawker reported. She told Lee on Jan. 21 that she figured out who he was by looking up his e-mail address on Facebook, and he did not answer back.
That’s around the time he reportedly told his congressional staff that his e-mail account had been hacked.
Lee, who positioned himself as a “family values” politician, opposed overturning the military’s anti-gay “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and voted consistently anti-choice.
