Ex-page threatened over role in Foley flap
Edited on Tue Oct-03-06 11:37 AM by Lone_Star_Dem
A former male House page from Louisiana has received threats since reports surfaced Friday that former Rep. Mark Foley sent him inappropriate e-mails, another congressman said Monday night.

This teenager and his family have gone through hell, GOP Rep. Rodney Alexander of Louisiana said. Alexander wouldnt say what type of threats the teenager was receiving, or the source of the threats.

Alexander sponsored the then-16-year-olds service as a House page but said the teenager worked for the House clerk. The boy, who is from Monroe, La., is now 17.

"Its just not fair that they got caught up in this and became casualties, Alexander said. His mother is just broken up by it. Naturally, shes concerned about her child."

8. They're threatening kids now
This is what they're reduced to now? If I were that child's mother I'd be ripping me some republican ass.

5. Yo!
Yo, all you whistle-blowing former Congressional Pages!

NO SMALL PLANES!

DO NOT USE SMALL AIRCRAFT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

Also, keep a "suicide buddy" or two with you AT ALL TIMES, so you don't get mysteriously suiced against your will!

3. Freepers, of course.
Because they love "personal responsibility" and adore "family values."

11. It should be a crime, shouldn't it
I hadn't thought of that, but it's against the law to threaten someone.

12. tampering with a witness used to be a crime
blackmail used to be a crime too,
buggery of children used to be a crime,
back in the old day's the boys father woulda just shot the pervert,
not waiting for replicans to cover up a child predator ring.

These republicans are good for soft justice,
"are you hard" or are you soft. I bet he's soft now.
