Submission + - Craigslist Congressman Cedes Chair (cnn.com)

Ethanol-fueled writes: Republican representative John "Chris" Lee, who voted against the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act and in favor of the prohibition of federal funding of abortion, has now resigned his House seat following a report that he attempted to meet a mistress on Craigslist.

Lee, who is married and has a son, resigned after the website Gawker published an item reporting he corresponded with a woman who posted a Craigslist ad and allegedly sent her a bare-chested suitable-for-work photo of himself.

It goes without saying that our public officals are held to a higher moral standard than the rest of us are, but what if he weren't married with family? What if the ad were on Match.com instead of Craigslist? Should he still be admonished?

Submission + - 7.0 Earthquake Rocks Haiti (msn.com)

Ethanol-fueled writes: Holy fugging shat! What could be considered the world's most worthless nation has finally suffered God's Wrath as punishment for practicing Voodoo and Santeria. Adding additional insult to injury, the epicenter, 5 miles deep, was only 15km from the capital city Port-Au Potty. Large numbers of uppity displaced inhabitants are blaming "The Man" for the mess while asking him for handounts and relief dollars.
