(Washington, DC)  --  Republican House Speaker John Boehner says Congressman Christopher Lee made the right call by resigning.  Boehner was asked if Republican leaders pressured Lee to resign.

Lee, a New York Republican, abruptly resigned after a report surfaced that he flirted online despite being married.  The resignation came after the gossip site Gawker posted a bare-chested photo of him that he apparently sent a woman he met on Craigslist. Although married with a child, Lee reportedly told the 34-year-old woman he was single and worked as a lobbyist.  The woman searched online for his name and realized he had lied.  She then leaked their e-mail exchanges to Gawker.
