photo by jsmjrFormer U.S Rep. Mark Foley has now hit for the cycle:
- I'm am alcoholic
- I'm gay
- I was abused as a teen,
- By a clergyman
What needs to happen is this:
- Nobody turns this into a gay-related scandal. This is sexual abuse of the most garden variety type: a man in a position of power trying to seduce subordinates.
- Nobody proposes legislation to restrict email or instant messaging.
- Nobody says "molested over the Internet" anymore. Democratic Rep. Patty Wetterling has already done so in an election ad.
