Mark Foley, world-class hypocrite
Mark Foley, hypocritical co-chair of the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus, made this hypocritical and portentous comment about the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal in 1998:
"It's vile. It's more sad than anything else, to see someone with such potential throw it all down the drain because of a sexual addiction." (http://www.sptimes.com/Worldandnation/91298/Congress_sees_through.html)
He also said, about the FBI's crackdown on child predators: "If I were one of those sickos, I'd be nervous." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6BKR4cTmAg)
And about the idea of teen nudist camps: "It's putting matches a little too close to gasoline." (http://www.sptimes.com/2003/06/19/State/Nude_summer_youth_cam.shtml?remember)
Obviously, Foley is a sick man and needs professional help. Unfortunately, so will his young victims. The real scandal here is that people who knew what was going on didn't do anything to stop it. Those people don't need professional help - they need to lose their jobs.
