Focus on- Foley Chairman of Caucus on Missing and Exploited Kids
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 07:16 AM by better2know
There are potential problems with many different approaches to Foley, including illegalities, unpleasantries, the distance of his house to the page's dorm, the scientology connection, corruption, his large role in the 2000 election recount in Florida, and the immorality of his actions, but, unambiguously, this man should not have remained head of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children.

Yes, Justice should grind Foley exceedingly fine, but this is a straight out golden opportunity to shed sunlight in this huge gaping hole and reveal the filthy extent of their compromised behavior. The Congressional leadership were obviously continuing to let this creature do whatever he wanted, as long as he voted Republican.

This cover up clearly reveals the immorality, blackmail, and sordid secrets of our leadership, and is clearly emblematic of their thinking and behavior.

Torture, the Constitution, and the budget are much more important, but are complicated and spinnable (unfortunately even torture), but it's impossible to spin the fact that the Republican Congressional leadership should have at least kept Foley away from kids.

What's lovely is we can frame our argument to "take out the trash" while getting to the most effective endpoint:

"Mark Foley may not have been abusing children, young men, and the public trust, but those emails, that the Congressional leadership knew about, definitely show he shouldn't have been in charge of the Page program in 2002 or co-chair of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children."

Who knew what, and when?

The cover up is worse than the crime.

-sorry having trouble with indenting paragraphs

-Go Get Those Bush Bastards!

-Mucho edits for clarity etc.

2. We need to make sure to hold their feet to the fire on this issue...
If they are going to declare themselves the "holier-than-thou" Party, they ought to be able to walk the walk, not just talk the talk. These are kids lives this man was allowed to ruin.





That's all I have to say about it, too.
