Stupid. Shameful. Criminal.
Florida congressman and Republican Mark Foley is an idiot. That, sadly, is the smallest of his sins.
He has also disgraced himself, proven himself a hypocrite of the worst kind, and embarrassed his family in a horrific way. Appropriately, he will likely be prosecuted for his transgressions under laws that he himself spearheaded--laws targeting Internet predators who preyed on children.
So far--and, hopefully, never--there has been no accusation of Foley having actually sexually assaulted any of the kids, which in no way excuses the rank abuse of power and position from this fraud. The words to describe Foley--if the accusations prove to be accurate and they sure as hell seem credible--are stupid, shameful, and criminal.
Here’s hoping that his resignation and position don’t shelter him from prosecution for his crimes.
Update: And if the story weren’t bad enough on its own, here’s an example of House Republican leadership failing its duties in a massive way.
