Asked whether he spoke with now-former Rep. Chris Lee (R-NY) after his shirtless photo surfaced and before his resignation, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told reporters, "My conversations with members are private and will remain that way."
But Boehner didn't quite leave it at that.
He did indicate that he thought Lee's resignation was the right thing to do, adding "I believe that members of Congress should be held to the highest ethical standards, as the American people expect."
Though reports surfaced again this morning that Lee was one of several junior members that Boehner warned last year about their personal lives, Boehner indicated that he was as blindsided by the half-naked pictures and emails from Lee as anyone. He mentioned that he was first aware of the problem, "Sometime yesterday afternoon, and then it was a little after six when I heard that he had resigned"
Boehner added of Lee: "I think he made the right decision for himself and for his family."
"On Saturday night, I would see men lusting after half naked girls dancing at the carnival, and on Sunday morning when I was playing organ for the tent show evangelists at the other end of the carnival lot, I would see these same men sitting in the pews with their wives and children, asking God to forgive them and purge them of carnal desires. And the next Saturday night, they'd be back at the carnival, or some other place of indulgence.
I knew then that the Christian Church thrives on hypocrisy, and that man's carnal nature will out."*
"Lee, who won his seat in 2008, cultivated a family-values voting record in the House, earning an 88 percent approval rating from the American Conservative Union for his 2010 votes. He voted in favor of a ban on federal funding of abortion in the health care overhaul, in line with the group's position on the proposed ban, which was defeated in the House. He also voted against the repeal of the military's policy prohibiting service by openly gay men and women."*

Several people contacted the campaign of Lee's Democratic opponent in 2008, Alice J. Kryzan, to say they had firsthand knowledge of Lee cheating on, or attempting to cheat on, his wife, two sources with knowledge of the campaign said.
Kryzan decided against pursuing the accusations because she didn't want to run a dirty campaign, the sources said.
... lying is a fact of daily life. Participants in the community study, on the average, told a lie every day; participants in the college student study told two. One out of every five times that the community members interacted with someone, they told a lie; for the college students, it was one out of every three times. Of all of the people the community members interacted with one on one over the course of a week, they lied to 30% of them; the college students lied to 38% of the people in their lives.
