The object lesson of Foley's inappropriate e-mails to male pages is that when a Republican congressman is caught in a sex scandal, he immediately resigns and crawls off into a hole in abject embarrassment. Democrats get snippy.

Mark Foley plans to reveal the name of a clergyman he says abused him as a teenager, a move his attorney said would deflate claims the former congressman fabricated the allegations as an excuse for sending sexually explicit e-mails to teenage pages.
Gerald Richman, Foley's civil attorney, said Tuesday that Foley has been "keeping this deep dark secret inside of him for many years."
"He's dealing with this issue, but it's going to take a lot of time."
"We're talking about issues that happened 36 to 38 years ago," Richman said. "This is all part of the healing process for Mark Foley. He thinks it's important to go ahead and bring this information out and hope and encourage other people who have been similarly abused to go ahead and come forward."

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.
That is the arguement defending Mark, that 16 is legal in D.C. but not in FLorida where FOley is from.
Florida -- All sodomy acts illegal. Penalty = (60 days/$500)
