 All right. A new sex scandal boiling up on Capitol Hill and it's already cost a congressman his job. It's because of the shirtless beef cake photo that you're taking a look at right there.

美国国会再现性丑闻,涉及到此丑闻的议员已经辞职。事因一张赤裸上身的照片。


New York Republican Chris Lee resigned after the photo and some tawdry details at the Internet.

纽约共和党员克里斯李在照片以及一些低级的信件被曝光后辞职。


CNN's Deb Feyerick outside Lee's home in Amperes, New Jersey.

CNN记者Deb Feyerick在新泽西克里斯李的住宅外采访。


My guess is he's not going to step out and talk to you and the cameras, Deb.

我猜他是不会出来接受你的采访的,Deb。


Well, he's definitely not going to step out and talk to us. As a matter of fact, the last reported sighting was as he was leaving Capitol Hill and someone asked him where he was going and he basically had no comment except to say this is something that he needed to figure out between he and his wife.

他肯定不会出来接受采访的。实际上,上一次报道他离开国会,有人问他将会去哪里时,克里斯李并没有作答,只是说跟妻子之间要有个了结。


Now Chris Lee, he apparently lied about his age, he lied about being divorced, he lied about his job. The one thing he did tell the truth about is what his name was. Well, apparently this was not the first time he had reached out to a woman on Craigslist as some of those e- mails suggest.

克里斯李显然在网上谎称自己的年龄,说自己离婚了,也隐瞒了自己的工作。只有一件事是真的,那就是他真的叫做克里斯李。很显然,他也不是第一次在Craigslist网上向其他的女性发送这样的邮件了。


What seemed like a promising career for this up-and-rising Republican ended in just a matter of hours. He had served Congress for two years, but once this hit the Internet on Gawkers, once those photos came out, it took about three hours for him to actually resign.

看来这位共和党人前途光明的职位在短短的几个小时内就告终了。克里斯李在国会工作了两年,但一旦这些信息流到Gawkers网上,一旦这些照片被显露,仅仅三个小时,他就真得辞职了。


Now the House Speaker John Boehner apparently did not force him out. However, it did appear that this was something that he simply could not survive. He issued a statement saying how sorry he was, saying how he needed to fix this, that he would do everything he could to make this all right.

白宫发言人John Boehner显然没有强制他离开。但是显然他也不能再待下去了。克里斯李发表声明称自己很抱歉,并需要对此负责,愿做任何事情来弥补这次的过失。


Now the e-mails apparently were sent from a G-mail account linked to his personal Facebook page. His spokesman had earlier said that perhaps that e-mail account was hacked into. However, the e-mails to this woman on Craigslist were sent before that hacking was reported and the picture that was sent was from a BlackBerry which you can clearly see in that photograph.

发送这封邮件G-mail账号与他个人的Facebook主页账号一致。他的发言人早些时候称那个电子邮件账户可能被黑客侵入。但是,Craigslist网上发给那名女子的邮件却是在克里斯李声称邮件被侵入之前,你可以清楚地看到这张照片是通过黑莓发送的。


Now folks here in western New York, really they're pretty disappointed. One of the main reasons is this was a businessman who was really trying to rebuild the area and bring businesses to this part of Buffalo. That's why there's sort of a sense of loss and sadness.

现在,纽约西部的人们都对此事感到万分失望。主要原因之一就是克里斯李真正努力要重建纽约西部,要为Buffalo带来商机。


You always come home and there'd be messages to what he was doing and, you know, updating you on progress or whatever, and for him to do something like this and throw it all away was sad.

你总是回家,会听到有关他的消息,每天都更新,但是,他却做出这样的事情,太让人遗憾了。


Sad state of affairs when you have someone that you are supposed to respect publicly lets you down.

当你觉得一个应该被尊重被爱戴的人却做出这种事情,确实很让人失望。


Really we need qualified people in Congress to represent us and, I mean, everybody makes mistakes and nobody seems to be able to live with what they do.

我需要合格的国会议员代表我们,我的意思是,每个人都会犯错,但是没人能够忍受他们的所作所为。
