American Congressman is a dirty paedo

To be more specific: Mark Foley. Despite the millions of comments on that story from what I can only assume are disturbingly uninformed Americans desperate to cover up any bad word said about anyone connected to their fascist Republican Administration, there's definitely something dodgy about this.

He sent emails to a 16 year old former page (from his personal AOL account no less), asking
"did you have fun at your conference…what do you want for your birthday coming up…what stuff do you like to do."

In another Foley writes, "how are you weathering the hurricane…are you safe…send me an email pic of you as well…"

Er isn't that quite wierd?
The young man forwarded that e-mail to a congressional staffer saying it was "sick sick sick sick sick."

That's just worrying. I mean there's a chance it doesn't mean what I'd assume it means, but there should at least be some kind of investigation. The most hilarious thing for me, as pointed out by Shakespeare's Sister is this point:
The explanation: Congressman Foley’s office confirms he wrote the emails but claims they were “entirely appropriate and that their release is part of a smear campaign by his opponent.” The emails were “completely innocent” and “Foley is only guilty of being friendly.” Uh-huh. Also, it’s just their office policy to keep pictures of former interns, that’s all.

Let’s say that it is. Do they typically get copies of those pictures by personal requests from the Congressman’s personal email account? I doubt it.

Well Indeed! And obviously this guy hasn't even been arrested and will continue to exert his power over the people of America. SCARY.
