That's the way to do it, Jonesy, blame the victim.

And this kid's motive was? Fear of STD maybe? Scorned that he wasn't Mark's one and only? True love?

Or he just wants to get back there ftf to punch him out like he should have on the floor.

I guess this is blog page number 5 you have cut and paste this crap of your on. As I have already told you prove your smear allegations or shut the hell up. You are a right wing nut job who needs to admit that it is over. your smear and lying B.S. will not work. Americans know what lies you are telling and are laughing their asses off at how ignorant you really are.
Again, why have you not mentioned the cover up by Hastert and the top Republican leadership ??????????
Because you are a party partisan hack that's why.
One thing is certain, you cannot hold anyone against their will on instant messenger.

Hey, dont beat jones to hard, wait a few days and see if what he is saying, just could be close to right.Besides we dems had our boy studds back a few years ago and we certainly did not handle that well at all. The leadership at that time stood behind him all the way to re-election.

Hippo can't help it, he is a self-loathing individual who rails against what he is. His hypocwisy is only matched by his sadist-masochist streak...I should know, I've had him in my dungeon.

"A congressman who bragged about his high marks from the Christian Coalition and American Conservative Union, a congressman who co-chaired the caucus on missing and exploited children, railing against Internet pedophiles ...

Perfect cover for the secret Foley, who was sending out electronic messages asking, among other things, for a young male page to provide the measurements of his penis.

That's not a drunk talking. That's a predator."

I see, so since Hastert defended him, that is why no one - including yourself - has called for his head...
And you equate Jefferson caught red-handed to a paper trail and allegations on Hastert...
I have protested the "He's sorry" mentality of the GOP. You must be on some other forum. I feel Mr. Hastert should go. The Republican is going to suffer in November. This is going to hurt them bigger than anything else. Wrongdoing---then merely apologizing to save ones' job, that ain't gonna fly buster. People are tired of Gov't deciding who's going to serve the people, not the other way around. Our Gov't was intended for the people, not the politicians. Gov't is self-serving. The people will have the last laugh!

from CNN...

A Republican member of Congress confronted then-Rep. Mark Foley about his Internet communications with teenagers as early as 2000, according to a newspaper report.

The report in the Washington Post pushes back by at least five years the date when a member of Congress acknowledges learning of the Florida Republican's questionable behavior toward pages.

It came as the Republican leadership attempted to present a united front on the congressional page scandal that has rocked the GOP a month before midterm elections and put House Speaker Dennis Hastert on shaky ground.

Though Rep. Adam Putnam, R-Florida, insisted Sunday that "the dirty laundry in our conference is gone," that claim appeared to be premature.

The Washington Post reported Sunday night that Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Arizona, confronted Foley about his Internet communications with teenagers as early as 2000.

The Foley scandal reminds me of the democrats scandal in the 70's and 80's when they were caught having sex with under age pages. They were sensored by congres and removed from office, but Studds(D) from Mass, wa reelected to congress by the democrats of Massachusettes even though they knew he was a pedofile at the time. The democrats in the house gave him a round of applause when he returned to congress.
