1. Of course, that, in itself isn't illegal...
...however it does show a fondness for young men. How low (in age) did he go?

7. no, the page is saying he was 21 when the sex took place
LATimes:Ex-Page Tells of Foley Liaison
The young man says the then-congressman eyed males in the program. He says he was 21 when he and the Florida Republican had sex.

A former House page says he had sex with then-Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) after receiving explicit e-mails in which the congressman described assessing the sexual orientation and physical attributes of underage pages but waiting until later to make direct advances.

The former page, who agreed to discuss his relationship with Foley with the Los Angeles Times on the condition that he not be identified, said his electronic correspondence with Foley began after he finished the respected Capitol Hill page program for high school juniors. His sexual encounter was in the fall of 2000, he said. At the time, he was 21 and a graduate of a rural Northeastern college.

14. thank you mm!
I have been outa the loop the last couple of days and completely missed this. I have only caught bits and pieces on CNN and you know how great that is. :eyes:

I was wondering if anyone knows how many pages he has made advances to? Has that been mentioned anywhere? CNN reports like it is just the one in FL.

18. that's my question as well
I know there is the one that was in CA(working on Istook's campaign), another one was interviewed from Atlanta (Ty something or other), the one from LA that started the whole ball rolling, but I'm sure there have been more. I'm not sure about the FL one, I think that maybe the one from LA maf was talking to after the hurricane. It's hard to keep track of it all.

4. Also, a bit inappropriate, IMO. Like a teacher having sex with a student.
Even though it may not be illegal, it's still unprofessional and demonstrates poor judgment.

16. Bill Did Not Prowl After & Groom Monica
She had already established herself as a sexual being when she carried on an affair with a married man for five years. She chased after Bill not the other way around but you knew that didn't you Carlos?

3. He was grooming them as pages and waiting until they were old enough,
possibly.

That is what I inferred in reading one of him ims.

9. Steve Gilliard has been saying that it was only a matter of time...
before some actual, as opposed to virtual, sex would surface.

17. 24 Hours In The News Cycle...
We're so used to these bombshells blowing up against us, but stand by...the next shoe to drop has fallen. The "juice" rhe corporate media was hoping for...especially if this person or another is willing to do one of those "behind the mask/voice altered" interviews. This is where the "alleged" is removed in many minds and people flock to the tube as they're turned on by being turned off by the details of this story. Think about the circus atmosphere of when the Starr report was released.

And there's still other sides of this story that are festering. There's still plenty in the pipeline to suck up several more news cyles and churn this scandal for all its worth.

The fun will be to see how Rushbo tells his coven to spin this. I suspect the fact this person was over 21 at the time of "contact" with the good Representative will absolve all Repugnicans of any guilt...and somehow it was Democrats who either have been sheltering this guy or paid him off or promised him a job with a new majority staffer...the denial game moves along.
