IMO Mark Foley was one of the best Representatives I have ever come in contact with. I respect him as a human being. When I had a problem he was the only one who sent me a personal response and followed up with a telephone call. If he was a democrat he would still be in office.
All you big macho men out there should know how many of our Marines follow that life style.
They are some of the best warriors in the world.

News flash: Mark Foley won't face charges. I know because this is the 4th different headline with the third different "reporter"s name under it, for the exact same story, in 2 days. Each "reissue" buries the current Topix thread.

Foley is a pedophilefag.

RE-ELECT ME AGAIN.

I love living in MARYLAND and sometimes working in south florida.
Congress is the best place to work. I can cheat, lie and steal and I guess even have gay sex with minors and not get in trouble. WHAT A COUNTRY

Mark Foley got away with the HELP from the Politician Figures: Charlie Crist and the rest of those ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE lawmakers and Catholic Priests. Yup, those MORONS living in the hidden closets with their HOMOSEXUAL fantasies preying on young BOYS. There is an old saying, "What goes around will get around" and eventually Mark Foley will get caught in the act and going to JAIL.

Foley should give strong consideration to taking his own life! He is nothing more than live "afterbirth"!

This is one more mark against serving as evidence of the political nature of the Justice Dept and it's constant obstruction justice along with the approval of congress.
This is an outrage and far more serious than the question of where Tim Mahoney lives!

AMEN to most of what you wrote, but not all.

However, while Foley HAD BEEN a victim of a pedophile Catholic priest, Foley CHOSE to become a VICTIMIZER himself. He's a halfway intelligent man who knew he needed help. The Catholic pedophile clergy abuse scandal became NATIONALLY public in Janauary 2002. Foley had 4 years to seek psychological help, but he CHOSE NOT TO SEEK HELP.

I'll bet the Catholic hierarchy, particulary Bishop Barbarito and Archbishop Favalora have paid Foley so handsomely (pun intended - Barbarito is gay) that Foley will never have to work again.

There are victims of Catholic pedophile priests and nuns who had much worse things done to them for longer periods of time than did Foley, and the Church hierarchy is NOT DOING A DAMN THING TO HELP THOSE VICTIMS.

Foley, I hope you're reading this -- you need to go hang yourself.

P.S. I write this as a Catholic clergy abuse victim/survivor AND as a Republican.

You're disgraceful! Now go find a rope.
