Robert D. Novak: Keeping Mark Foley

WASHINGTON Disgraced former Congressman Mark Foley had two excellent job offers in the private sector this year when Rep. Tom Reynolds, National Republican Congressional Committee chairman, talked him into seeking a seventh term.

Although Reynolds says Foley was merely deciding whether to run again, the talk in Republican circles on Capitol Hill was that he was ready to leave Congress. His inappropriate e-mails to a former page were known to the Republican leadership late last year. The 16th congressional district was considered so safely Republican that any GOP candidate could carry it but now likely will be lost with Foley still on the ballot.

1. It reminds me of that "bad idea" jeans skit on SNL.
Foley running for re-election when he was known to have a page problem: bad idea!
