"3. The GOP leadership investigated at the time and told him to break off the email correspondence after Foley assured them it was a â€œmentor thing.â€"
Riiiight. They investigated.Comment Posted By Auntie Occident On 30.09.2006 @ 21:54
Hastert's statement says that the Clerk of the House Board and Hastert's office "investigated" Foley's conduct without even insisting on seeing the emails that Foley sent. We can visualize the brutal interrogation: "Say Mark, did you send any inappropriate e-mails to a sixteen year old boy?" "Er, ah, nope." "Ah! Good then. Golf tomorrow as usual?"
"After you call me a moron?"
I'm sorry; did I misspell your name? How careless of me. It's Moran, isn't it? An unfortunate mistake. Please forgive. Now, about that answer...Comment Posted By Auntie Occident On 30.09.2006 @ 21:46
Oh, and for you folks who say Foley didn't do anything illegal... wellity wellity wellity.
"one of the laws which Mark Foley appears to have violated is the so-called "Adam Walsh Child Protection Act of 2006" which, among other things, increases penalties for adults who use the Internet to discuss or solicit sexual acts with "minors" (defined as an "individual who has not attained the age of 18 years")."
This law makes it illegal to even discuss sexual matters with a minor. Asking a sixteen year old his favorite masturbation technique probably falls under this particular clause. Thanks for playing.Comment Posted By Auntie Occident On 30.09.2006 @ 21:39
"blackhearted smear merchants...grasping at straws." Well, think of it as our Swiftboat Veterans for Truth, and I'm sure it'll be a lot more palatable. After all, we only want the truth to be told about Rep. Foley and his enablers.Comment Posted By Auntie Occident On 30.09.2006 @ 21:08
"It is little more than what a fraternity might subject its pledges to."
Let's strap your ass to the waterboard and simulate drowning you. After 2 hours of it, you can tell us whether it's torture or a fraternity prank.Comment Posted By Auntie Occident On 30.09.2006 @ 21:00
