Breaking news on the story behind the Foley story. Sources close Mark Foley's IM "page-pal" are claiming that the IMs were part of a prank. We'll have to see on that. Drudge claims to have corroborating sources.
It is also now being said that he was 18 years of age, which is still twisted, but not illegal. That hasn't stopped a Minnesota candidate of accusing the GOP of conspiring to protect a child molester.
"Congressional leaders have admitted to covering up the predatory behavior of a congressman who used the internet to molest children.”
Nancy Pelosi has had plenty to say. Most recently she "demanded that Republican leaders be questioned under oath about what they knew of Foley's conduct." Forgetting for a moment that she voted in favor of Gerry Studds five times for chairman positions after she knew he was guilty of date rape, it is starting to look more and more like it might be Democrats who need to be under oath as per her demand. See Macsmind's three part series.
Also, it looks like Democrats are blocking efforts to investigate the page program.
Of course it has been a particularily brisk season for slime overall, what with the whole "N-word" and "You're Jewish! Admit it!" attack against George Allen, actual crimes committed against Michael Steele, and the worst by far, a despicable sliming of Jeanne Pirro.
For those of you unaware, Pirro's opponents leaked sealed wire taps for the sole purpose of embarassing her privately.
And why not? Stealing financial records and sliming opponents a month before an election is certainly a lot easier than other things that could have occupied the Democratic Party these last two years...like agreeing on a platform.
What a disgrace.
