This is why I know the Repubs covered up the Foley Scandal
Just look at how they are trying to cover it up now.

Tony Perkins blames it on ALL homosexuals being out of control sexually. Pat Buchanan says it was OK since the kids lived in Virginia and the "gays" fought to lower the age of consent in Virginia.

Conservative monkey Matt Drudge - said the Paige's were "beasts" and were "having fun". and "egging the Congressman"

Michael Savage echoed these types of statements adding that the kid was "greedy and aggressive" and wanted to use Foley to get ahead. And then he used the simple denial strategy by saying he questioned whether the boy who blew the whistle even existed.

Rush Limbaugh said the emails were planted by Democrats.

Perkins and Newt Gingrich blamed society by suggesting that all the ones who knew did not say anything because they were afraid they would be called "gay bashes". In other words it is once again the gays fault by forcing themselves on society.

So if all the right winged fanatics are trying to cover up the truth now there is no way they wanted the truth to come out before. The fact that they could have saved a young kid from the trauma of a powerful political figure coming on to them when they were in a situation that, by design, stripped them of their normal power to stand up for themselves, shows how much they care don't care about children but care about saving themselves at all costs

1. This is a GOP scandal owned by the GOP
The fact they've refused to hold themselves accountable but blame the democrats only make them look weaker.

The polls are showing it. You reap what you sow.

Let these right wingers know your feelings:

Jerry Falwell at www.falwell.com
American Family Association at www.afa.net
James Dobson at www.family.org
Perkins at www.frc.org
