Mask Take Two—FoleyGate

Exactly what they knew and when they knew it.

ABC News is reporting that word was on the street about republican Mark Foley, the page fondling pervert from Florida, as early as 2001. Five years ago young boys eager to serve the country as pages to our members of Congress were being warned about Foley with remarks like, "Don’t get too wrapped up into his being nice to you."

Email handle "maf54" sent emails to these kids requesting photographs, dimensions of genitals, and descriptions of specific sexual acts. Bewildered, confused, and understandably terrified 16 year old kids (can you imagine?), wrote fearful responses like, "I’m still young, like under 18, and don’t want to do anything illegal."

Reader Discretion Advised.

Again, this guy chaired the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus. The very laws this caucus was involved with enacting may actually now be used against its former chairman.

Why didn’t this guy seek spiritual counseling?

Maybe he did consult his priest, and they ended up sharing photos.

This scandal brought to you courtest of the "family values" party.

If the Republican leadership had dealt with this guy appropriately in 2001, it would have been a scandal, but one they could have scored points on for dealing with in a quick and appropriate manner.

Now, it's just a disaster -- for them, and for all the unfortunate souls who had to deal with Foley's emails and ims since then.
