WASHINGTON, D.C. ( ABC NEWS / MediaBistro.com ) ABC NEWS "Good Morning America" ( seen Saturday morning on Channel 7 ) broadcast the first picture of the woman allegedly involved in the Craigslist scandal with former Congressman Chris Lee. The picture is from Yesha Callahan's blog on website www.blackflychick.com.
Betsy Rothstein from www.mediabistro.com posted the following on February 11, 2011 10:40 PM in the FISHBOWL DC section of that website:
"...Yesha Callahan has written what she claims is her “first and last” blog post on the subject of Ex-Rep. Chris Lee (R-N.Y.). Thursday night, WaPo‘s( Washington Post's) Reliable Sources broke the identity of the woman who the now infamous congressman allegedly sent his shirtless photograph to on Craigslist.
Now she spills all on her personal blog, FlyBlackChic.com. Callahan has freelanced for TheLoop21.com, which sent us( Media Bistro) the latest news. In short: “Sure I received the photos, yes I sent them to Gawker.” ( referring to www.gawker.com, the tabloid website that broke the story Wednesday afternoon shortly after 3p.m.)
Yesha writes, “Excuse me for not realizing asking “Do you have something that doesn’t look like a JCPenney Ad” is considered enticing nowadays. Maybe I’ll use it more often. Maybe it’ll keep me off of Craigslist. Maybe it’ll yield me a financially & emotionally stable man. I mean anything is possible right?”
Yesha Callahan's friend and fellow blogger Danielle Belton was interviewed by ABC NEWS, and posted her own story on loop21.com.
ABC NEWS tells Eyewitness News that Callahan's website blog will be her first and last commentary on the incident.
As of this posting, Chris Lee has not been seen or made any comment other than the statement he released Wednesday apologizing to his family and his constituents for "profound mistakes."
