According to ABC News: Former Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) interrupted a vote on the floor of the House in 2003 to engage in Internet sex with a high school student who had served as a congressional page.
Foley used the screen name Maf54.
Maf54: I miss you
Teen: ya me too
Maf54: we are still voting
Maf54: you miss me too
The exchange continues in which Foley and the teen both appear to describe having sexual orgasms.
Maf54: ok..i better go vote..did you know you would have this effect on me
Teen: lol I guessed
Teen: ya go vote…I don't want to keep you from doing our job
Maf54: can I have a good kiss goodnight
Teen:Boehner and Hastert knew about Foley and tried to cover it up.
Now Castle has a choice to make. As Dennis Spivack puts it: “Representative Castle portrays himself as a force for moderation and good government who stands apart from the corruption that has marked Republican rule. This is his chance to demonstrate his independence and strength of character by joining in the calls for their resignations and donating the money recently raised for him by Boehner.”I agree.
The Republican Congress lies when it says it is protecting children and lies when it says it is protecting America in the war on terror. The are protecting one thing: Republican seats in Congress. These are legitmate questions:
How much money did Castle take in at the stealth fundraiser? Boehner, a man who thinks everything is great in Iraq, came to Delaware while fully involved the the cover-up. Does Castle regret having Boehner campaign for him? Who knows. If Castle does the right thing and returns the money while calling for the removal of Hastert, it would go a long way to rehabilitating his image. Fair & Balanced Note:
Tom Carper (D) is a horrible person who hates America. I'm writing in Karen Peterson.
