Gay repub. Jim Kolbe knew of foley's emails SIX YEARS ago.
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15188206 /

Another Republican congressman knew of disgraced former representative Mark Foley's inappropriate Internet exchanges as far back as 2000 and personally confronted Foley about his communications.

A spokeswoman for Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-Ariz.) confirmed yesterday that a former page showed the congressman Internet messages that had made the youth feel uncomfortable with the direction Foley (R-Fla.) was taking their e-mail relationship. Last week, when the Foley matter erupted, a Kolbe staff member suggested to the former page that he take the matter to the clerk of the House, Karen Haas, said Kolbe's press secretary, Korenna Cline.

Kolbe, the only openly gay Republican in Congress, is retiring at the end of the year.

2. I figure it's going to keep getting worse and worse.
So, how long before Bushler openly declares himself 'dictater' and says, "let the genocide begin!"

5. Let's not demonize Kolbe.
He knew, he reported it, and he followed up.

He's gay and he did the right thing. I'm concerned that gays in Congress are going to get beaten up in this whole thing, and that's wrong.
