Mark Foley - former Congressman

I started to leave this alone. It's all over the net; you've all read it and I have nothing new to add. I changed my mind. It's important to make a public statement of my feelings.

It sickens me to even think about this. It sickens me even more that it's not an isolated incidence of a person in a position of power abusing the trust placed in him.

And what sickens me the most? The people who have known about it and done nothing. And would have done nothing if he hadn't been publicly exposed.

As it stands right now, he'll get to keep his pension and any other perks that go with it. That's just wrong. He should be brought up on criminal charges whether or not the House decides to hold its own investigation. Pedophilia is illegal and evil and he's the worst type of pedophile; masquerading as a champion of the victims.

Family values? Not in my book.

Update:

Investigation?

Setting the fox to watch the chickens is more like it.

    dawn marie, here's a site that helps to demonstrate why the republican party is the ethically superior, divinely inspired, moral compass for new millenium: armchair subversive. And that's just a start.

    It's this simple, imo. Had I been the one to send those text msg's, I would be in jail right now. Remember the Priests and Bishops that assualted all those kids? People higher up lost their jobs because they covered up for them. And that's exactly what the GOP has done. New kids coming in were "warned" about him. This is CSC, however you slice the political bread, he should be arrested, and those who covered up for him should be charged with aiding and abetting. Again, if you covered for me, do you think they'd let you walk scot free? I hardly doubt it!!

    In a fairminded world, it would be exactly that simple.

    But we're talking about the mob who booed Nancy Pelosi who dared suggest an investigation.

    no- it needs to be out there! it needs to be kept out there for as long as possible to counter the christian right wing hypocritical bullshit that typically permeates the election cycle. these people need to be exposed for what they are- not allowed to expose what they have to minors.
