The age of consent for heterosexual vaginal sex was 12 until 1890 when it was raised it to 14. It remained there until 1985 when it was raised to 18
in cases where an adult partner is in a position of authority over a minor .
Ok that is for heterosexual sex, but I think the main point is at the end with
"until 1985 when it was raised to 18 in cases where an adult partner is in a position of authority over a minor"
Mark had authority over the pages, and the pages were warned in 2001 to avoid him by other Republicans. So how this is not a bad thing I can't
figure out. Also, the age of consent in Florida is 17, Mark Foley is a Florida representitive, but his lovers/supporters say "Well it is 16 in
Fine, I want to have sex with a 12 year old girl, I'm going to Vietnam and having sex with a 12 year old girl. I did nothing wrong because it is
legal there so you better not report it on TV because there is nothing illegal involved with having sex with a 12 year old girl in Vietnam.
That is the arguement defending Mark, that 16 is legal in D.C. but not in FLorida where FOley is from. So again, if I go to Vietnam and have sex with
a 12 year old it's ok since I did nothing illegal, right? All hunky dorey, no problems, I'm still defended by my followers since I did it in an
area where it was legal.
Speaking of him being from Florida...
Florida -- All sodomy acts illegal. Penalty = (60 days/$500)
