Last week, the career of New York Congressman Chris Lee came to an abrupt end when Gawker broke the story that he solicited a woman on Craigslist and sent her a photo of him shirtless. After the news broke, Lee resigned and has not been seen or heard from since.
This morning, RadarOnline provided some more information on his would-be mistress. Her name is Yesha Callahan, is a resident of Columbia, Maryland, works for the University of Maryland and has a connection to Anne Arundel County.
Thanks to an alert reader, it seems that Callahan spent a few weeks in an Anne Arundel County Detention Center in late 2006 for identity theft. According to court records, she was sentenced in District Court to 18 months in jail. However, the judge suspended all but 12 days. She also served a similar sentence for identity theft in Price George’s County in 2005.
When you see politicians get into these messes, you jut have to shake your head and ask, “what the hell are they thinking?”
