Newsflash.....

Mark Foley's lawyer announced just moments ago that his client's homosexuality is the result of an alien abduction during his college days.
And...
Foley's lawyer has also revealed that the disgraced congressman was drunk when he engaged in online sex chats with gay teens.
And...
Mark Foley's lawyer suggested yesterday that a Roman Catholic priest who molested him as a child may be responsible for his homosexual proclivities.
And...
Republicans Giving Sexual Deviancy a Bad Name
Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) is a closet homosexual who used his position of power to lure impressionable young boys into obscene online chats. Yet in spite of all that, it turns out he is actually a bad person. His crime? Violating the sacred trust between members of Congress and their pages.
Read about it here, here, here and here.

And of course, no commentary about Foley is complete without a mention of the recently deceased former Massachusetts Representative Studds, the first openly gay member of Congress...
In 1983, Studds acknowledged his homosexuality after a 27-year-old man disclosed that he and Studds had had a sexual relationship a decade earlier when the man was a teenage congressional page.

The House of Representatives censured Studds, who then went home to face his constituents in a series of public meetings.

At the time, Studds called the relationship with the teenage page, which included a trip to Europe, "a very serious error in judgment." But he did not apologize and defended the relationship as a consensual relationship with a young adult. The former page later appeared publicly with Studds in support of him.
Its ok, if you don't feel sorry about it, I guess. So that is really what Foley is guilty of, he apologized and felt sorry for his behavior.
