Chris Lee wins "Worst Week in Washington"

By Chris Cillizza

Sometimes picking the person who had the "Worst Week in Washington" is hard. And then, sometimes there's Chris Lee.

Lee is the former New York congressman who resigned his office just hours after Gawker, an online gossip site, posted a shirtless picture and a series of flirtatious messages between the congressman and a woman who wasn't his wife.

As we write in today's print edition of the Post:

"The speed with which the Lee Flee played out was the most remarkable element of the scandal -- aside, of course, from the remarkably bad judgment in sending a half-naked picture to a woman you have never met....The scandal was tailor-made for Twitter, where Lee's denial, reversal and resignation unfolded."

You can read the whole thing here.
