Don’t Try This While Voting

Richard, what will it take to convince you that Mark Foley is well within the range of a deranged pedophile, deserving of the full scorn he is now receiving?

How about if I told you that while awaiting a vote on funding for the Iraq war, he had IM sex with yet another teen?

Maf54: ok..i better go vote..did you know you would have this effect on me

Teen: lol I guessed

Teen: ya go vote…I don’t want to keep you from doing our job

Maf54: can I have a good kiss goodnight

Teen: :-*

Or that he later invited the teen over to his Capitol Hill house for drinks?

Teen: are you going to be in town over the veterans day weekend

Maf54: I may be now that your coming

Maf54: who you coming to visit

Teen: haha good stuff

Teen: umm no one really

Maf54: we will be adjourned ny then

Teen: oh good

Maf54: by

Maf54: then we can have a few drinks

Maf54: lol

Teen: yes yes 😉

Maf54: your not old enough to drink

Teen: shhh…

Maf54: ok

Teen: that’s not what my ID says

Teen: lol

Maf54: ok

Teen: I probably shouldn’t be telling you that huh

Maf54: we may need to drink at my house so we don’t get busted

And that he reportedly met one of these pages in San Diego and had plans to see him again?

Or these email exchanges with another former page, which make the Starr report seem mild?

So forgive me if I don’t agree with your statement that “it appears that Foley took great care to keep himself apart from his demons.” Au contraire.
