Foley's site: before it gets deleted (and you know it's gonna get deleted)
Edited on Fri Sep-29-06 03:15 PM by EarlG
Here's a screencap of Foley's now highly ironic "Child Protection" page.



The text says:

We live in a new day and age, when our children are being exposed to more threats at school, in their own neighborhoods and even on the internet. In 1998, I helped to establish the Missing and Exploited Childrens Caucus in Congress in order to bring more attention to legislation and issues that provide law enforcement and parents with the tools they need to keep children safe.

I have been honored to become a leader on this issue in Washington, sponsoring
legislation that ensures organizations that deal with children have proper background checks, strengthens sex offender laws and eliminates child pornography.

* Sponsored legislation signed by the President that gives volunteer organizations that work with children, such as scouting and sports groups, access to FBI fingerprint-based background checks to ensure that they are not inadvertently hiring child molesters.

* Sponsored legislation toughening the penalties for those who hurt children.

* Joined forces with the Administration and Congress to fight child predators.

* Authored the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, which has passed both the House and Senate and which will overhaul the way predatory pedophiles are tracked and monitored.

* Introduced and cosponsored legislation designed to eliminate child pornography and exploitive child modeling web sites.

* Worked closely with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and John Walsh (host of FOX TVs "Americas Most Wanted") on a variety of child protection programs. Among the latest of these is a program designed to show children how to protect themselves from online predators.

Mark Foley, Caleb and Timothy

Mark Foley takes some time to interact with our children. Here he poses for a picture with Caleb DeBerry and Timothy Parker.

50. Love to hear the pastor try to defend Foley's sorry ass now.
Wonder how eager he'd be to let the kids hop up on uncle Foley's lap now?

(I first thought that maybe the boys are a bit young for Mark's tastes. But then that lovely little photo was taken over five years ago. Caleb and Timmy are probably just about the right age... )

20. Do you get the feeling that he aligned himself with Walsh and
these groups to find out how these "people" do what they do, took control of the committee to "steer" investigations, with the knowledge that they gained from their friends doing the real work in this area?

I think he used his affiliations as a guideline for just how to do what they do and not get caught. Seems they always get just a bit too cocky to keep themselves from becoming trapped in their own net.

Glad this asshat is gone. Prosecute him with his own laws!

21. People like Foley make life hard for people who work with children.
This really angers me. There are a lot of good decent people who enjoy working with children for the sake of being around children and wanting to offer them a good role model.

Then along comes a creep like Foley, a hypocrite with this Child Protection Act bullshit to cover his tracks, and it just casts an aspersion on everybody.

The joke by a poster upthread about him becoming a priest is exactly what I'm talking about. Some priests were pedophiles and now the whole priesthood has to live with that ugly scandal. People like Foley taint the entire community of people who dedicate their lives to working with children.

Yes, I know that pedophiles gravitate to jobs where there will be contact with children, but this is of a higher order because this creep is/was a Congressman.

Repubs and their scandals. Who the hell can keep up?

36. That's the truth. Strike up a casual conversation, watch them edge away.
A long time ago you could make small talk with a kid or a teen-ager and nobody gave it a second thought. Now I'm really careful to watch my body language so I don't get too close, and I don't talk too friendly unless I really know the kid or the parents.

Everyone's alarms are set at the lowest threshold possible. I guess if I were a parent, I'd be on constant alert, too. :(

28. I saw it earlier today...
...it opens with a Macromedia Flash slideshow with words like "honor" and "integrity" and whatever other superlatives you can assign to a man who has clearly taken the moral high ground.

I thought about copying it and posting here and thought "nah, I'll do it later..."

I just posted a thread about the site being down and a fellow DUer directed me here, so in addition to this post I gave this thread one more nomination.

27. Is this the same Foley who was FL house speaker in 2000 and
threatened to have the FL house decide the 2000 vote, if the count was allowed to go forward and it showed that Gore won? Seems like every day another one of the repuke leadership who has helped get america into its present pitiful state is revealed as an evil, corrupt pervert, just like we always knew they were.

30. Here's some text from Foley's "Farewell to Pages" speech from 04-
Edited on Fri Sep-29-06 06:49 PM by Rose Siding
http://www.vote-smart.org/speech_detail.php?speech_id=4...

Highlights:

...It is fun to watch the transformation from that first day to the last week. Because I see in all of you that sense of kind of reluctance to some degree to leave this place. You have met and have established lifelong friends in this very process.

What is exciting for all of us that serve here is that you truly represent the best and brightest in this country. It is very, very difficult, as you know, to become a page in the Congress. It requires a number of skill sets that will serve you in life: leadership, intelligence, personality, perseverance, and faith; and those are attributes that, as you mature and go forward in life, will serve you in phenomenal ways.

Many of you know that several Members of Congress originated in the page class. So it is not only a training and testing
ground. You certainly got a long exposure to the good and bad Congress has to offer....

Now, I know you have one more year of high school to conclude and that probably is some degree of relief or maybe, to those you feel like you are probably well equipped to enter your first year of college, some of you, I think, in conversing with you, some are actually mature enough to enter college right away.....

I know my page Anthony was, and is, expected to deliver the commencement speech. So a word of warning, Anthony, the
16th district is watching you very carefully.

This Member of Congress, of course, is delighted that there is an age requirement to run for the job. He lives in my community, and he certainly has to reach 25 before he campaigns for this job.

34. House Speaker Complicit in Foley Teen Sex Scandal Coverup?
Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) Resigns over sexually explicit Email's and IM's to 16 year old boy...

Here is one of the sexually explicit instant messages to a 16 year old boy (Foley's screenname is Maf54):
House Speaker Complicit in Foley Teen Sex Scandal Coverup?

The Republican House leadership are monsters. They knew and let him remain in the GOP leadership for a year. They let him remain the Chairman of the child sex offender caucus. Jesus H. Christ.


GOP = Gathering Of Pedophiles

Foley was Chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children
House Speaker Complicit in Foley Teen Sex Scandal Coverup?

The Republican House leadership has known about (and covered up) Foley for a year
Quote:
The page worked for Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-La., who said Friday that when he learned of the e-mail exchanges 10 to 11 months ago, he called the teen's parents. Alexander told the Ruston Daily Leader, "We also notified the House leadership that there might be a potential problem," a reference to the House's Republican leaders.

45. Oh, but you don't get it
what he did is different, of course. They all are above the law. They have generous health insurance, they can keep their campaign funds once they leave office - to do as they please, "family values" is to be exploited as campaign team.

Gingrich, Reagan, Phil Gramm, Dole and others who would be presidents - all dumped their first wives for a trophy one. Remember the guy who was a speaker for exactly two days, after Gingrich? And he had to resign because of his philandering.

In both politics and religion, the higher are the claims of holiness, the nastier are the real facts.
