Chairman of missing and exploited Childrens Caucus resigns

Republican Representative from florida Mark Foley who is a chairman on the caucus of missing and exploited children has resigned due to hitting on young boys that worked as pages in his office. This creep even introduced legislation to stop the very thing he was doing.

Read Story Here

and i quote

Foley, as chairman of the Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus, had introduced legislation in July to protect children from exploitation by adults over the Internet. He also sponsored other legislation designed to protect minors from abuse and neglect.

"We track library books better than we do sexual predators," Foley has said.

And he once accused the Supreme Court of "siding with pedophiles over children."

Now if that isnt the pot calling the kettle black. The very purportrators of the sick things were trying to make laws against them. Sounds like hiding in plain sight to me.

According to the CREW posting, the boy e-mailed a colleague in Alexander's office about Foley's e-mails, saying, "This freaked me out." On the request for a photo, the boy repeated the word "sick" 13 times.

"I am deeply sorry and I apologize for letting down my family and the people of Florida I have had the privilege to represent," he said in a statement issued by his office.

Foley's two-sentence statement gave no reason for Foley's decision to abandon a flourishing career in Congress. But several officials said the resignation had been prompted by the e-mails, and he took his action as fresh details emerged about electronic messages he had sent.

Only things that come to mind is one sick puppy and the grolsch/gannon thing.

Our government is so outta whack its not even funny. Both sides are teeming with injustice. and now with all the abramhoff stuff building higher and deeper. I just lose all confidence that i barely hung onto about our leadership these days.

1. People in these positions at times need to be questioned. I bet lots of people over the years saw knew or suspected inappropriate conversations or actions with these boys, and did not say or do anything, or they just said oh not him, couldn't be.

2. I remember reading on these forums that pedophiles were hard to catch cause they are highly connected, now I understand what they mean. The congressman in this story may not exactly be a pedophile, but it's bad morals to head up something for missing and exploited children, and then to be hitting on teenaged boy's that are working around you. How many others in these positions are doing the same thing, without getting caught, or worst?

I was so grossed out by this. Hiding in palin site? This is how they do it, then when it's time to find the bad guys, you can't cause they run these agencies. This is true for politics and so many other things as I am learning. The world really is a corrupt place. I am so upset by the whole thing, each time I begin to hope that it really is not all that bad, I see something like this, and it just brings it home.

I guess the world will stumble over the truth of this for two seconds, open their eyes, then shut them firmly back again.

gee now it makes sense why our leadership thinks child molestation is such a problem!
They are the ones doing it the most!!!! It just goes to show how different a world these cornholes in office are living in than the rest of us.

Disgusting degenerate goverment. Its funny but they make laws for the citizenry but somehow think they are above those laws...
And the worst part is he was the chairman.... Thats like having Hitler run the Habitat for humanity program. My god; what has this govt. come to?

Well thats one less demopublican(democrat/republican) that we will have raping us next term(pun intended)...

Foley's Follies could cause irreparable damage to seniour Republican officials.

They knew this was going on and allowed it to continue.

If they can prove that Hastert knew about this and did nothing to stop it, all hell could break loose.

At the moment several seniour members are implicated in a cover-up that could very well
have them subject to criminal prosecution under the very laws that Foley helped push through

His party affiliation is meaningless, the fact that he's a slimey wanna-be pedophile is what matters. Not to mention a hypocrite of the first order. Accusing the supreme court of siding with pedophiles while being one himself seemingly would be funny, if it wasn't so sick.

Sending Emails to minor male pages that were sexually explicit...not only is he a sick little pervert, but he's a stupid, sick little pervert. Did he actually think this wouldn't get out? Moron...

The dems have GOT to be loving this from a political standpoint...yet another example of the corruption rampant in the GOP. Just hope they're clean...

It is very sick. Pelosi wanted an investigation into how deep it goes but this incident was directed to the ethics committee. If that committee is anything like the exploited kids committee, doubt we will see much done to him. Sad Really.

Here are some of the things being said.

ABC News reported yesterday that it had interviewed Foley, 52, about excerpts of instant messages provided by current and former pages under the age of 18. ABC reported that Foley, under the AOL Instant Messenger screen name Maf54, made repeated references to sexual acts and body parts.

Maf54: You in your boxers, too?
Teen: Nope, just got home. I had a college interview that went late.
Maf54: Well, strip down and get relaxed.

Another message:

Maf54: What ya wearing?
Teen: tshirt and shorts
Maf54: Love to slip them off of you.

And this one:

Maf54: Do I make you a little horny?
Teen: A little.
Maf54: Cool.

The language gets much more graphic, too graphic to be broadcast, and at one point the congressman appears to be describing Internet sex.

This will probably get lost in the minds of mainstream americans because all they will see is a blurb and then onto more iraq/clinton/bush crud on the nightly news. Im amazed how short the attention span of most americans are and how quickly things get forgotten by them. Why most americans havent marched on washington to demand a new leadership is beyond me.

I hope all hell breaks loose Fallen cuz then maybe something will happen. Now with new info that abramhoff had waaaaay more contacts with bush and rove then those 2 told the investigating committee, the frustrations of the 9-11 commission over bush and senior officials stonewalling, i just dont see it happening. The writing is on the wall and its getting covered over by BS graffitti. But one can always hope.

Foley's GOP party affiliation does most certainly matter.

They knew nearly a year ago about what he was doing and they did nothing to
correct the situation.

In the eyes of the law that's contributing and most definitely a crime.

Dennis Hastert and the GOP leadership had better have their flameproof skivvies on. This could get ugly fast...

October surprise, indeed...this could cost the Republicans control of both houses.

His affiliation matters only in the political aspect of it...I frankly couldn't care less what his affiliation is...I want that scummy little pervert wreaked. Dem or Rep, doesn't matter in the slightest...if you want to turn it political fine, feel free.

I'm thinking he thought he was so much smarter than everyone else, he'd never get caught. Which only proves he's not only a pervert, but a moronic hypocrite as well.

If there isn't a bipartisan effort to hang this guy out to dry as he deserves...the entire house and senate leadership, not to mention the general membership of both houses should all resign or be impeached. IMHO. There can be no excuse for not hitting this guy with every sanction available.

The media has already named several Republicans who may face charges for criminal neglect.

According to the Associated Press, "Rodney Alexander, R-La., who sponsored the page from his district, told reporters that he learned of the e-mails from a reporter some months ago and passed on the information to Rep. Thomas Reynolds, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Republican campaign organization.[18] Carl Forti, a spokesman for the GOP campaign organization, said Reynolds learned from Alexander that the parents did not want to pursue the matter.
Rep. John Shimkus said "that in late 2005 he learned — through information passed along by Alexander's office — about an e-mail exchange in which Foley asked about the youngster's well-being after Hurricane Katrina, and requested a photograph."[18] Foley was ordered to cease all contact with the former page and assured Shimkus he would do so.

_Rep. John Shimkus, R-Ill., chairman of the Page Board that oversees the congressional work-study program for high schoolers, said he did investigate but Foley falsely assured him he was only mentoring the boy. Pages are high school students who attend classes under congressional supervision and work as messengers.

_The spokesman for Speaker Dennis Hastert, Ron Bonjean, said the top House Republican had not known about the allegations. Shimkus said he learned about them in late 2005.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi introduced a resolution calling for the House Ethics Committee to investigate the controversy, in part because the Democratic member of the Congressional page board, Dale Kildee, was never notified of this issue. That resolution passed unanimously, 410-0.

Of course I'm wondering just how many people knew about this especially certain Florida politicians?

Also, do you guys have any idea what they do to pedophiles in prison?

Foley could prove to be an invaluable whistle blower trying to save his own ass.

The GOP, the party that loved to claim the moral high ground just went down in flames now that they don't dare bring up Clinton and his indiscretions anymore.

Pedophilia and a heterosexual BJ really can't be compared can they.

My guess is the rabbit hole runs mighty deep.

Can't wait to listen to Rush, Oreally, Savage and Hannity.

So when do they show the Special Edition of Dateline NBC where Rep. Mark Foley gets caught strolling into some young aide's beautiful bungalow with a six pack of Mike's and naughty intentions. I might watch that.

Man the crap just keeps gettin deeper.

Hastert said he does not remember talking to Reynolds about the Foley e-mails, but did not dispute Reynolds' account.

"While the speaker does not explicitly recall this conversation, he has no reason to dispute Congressman Reynolds' recollection that he reported to him on the problem and its resolution," Hastert's aides said in a preliminary report on the matter issued Saturday.

So Pediphilia is so freakin rampant that a congressman talks to you about anothers engaging of a 16yr old boy, and its so mainstream that you dont recall it???

Im utterly blown away at the lack of attention this got when it was initially found in 2005. Guess they dont want to rock the NAMBLA boat they all freakin party in. The Grolsch/Gannon thing keeps ringing in my mind. Pedophilia must be the "IN" thing in washington i guess.

I better be careful what i say. With that new bill passed, i maybe labeled enemy combatant and locked up and tortured indefinitely. This countries administration has gone to hell in a handbasket with a rocket strapped to its butt!!!

Is anyone picking up anything from those idiots apart from the sound of tumbleweed blowing across the road?
If he'd been a democrat they would be wall-to-wall with this stuff by now.
Urgh... feeling grossed out now...

The almighty Rush spend the better part of the first hour of his show explaining how the left would spin this to thier advantage. This slim ball DIDN"T EVEN BRING UP THE FACT THAT HE WAS WRONG FOR DOING THIS FOR A HOUR! This is not a left or right matter this is the fact that this guy and child predator has been the voice of shield for child protection laws and he was the very evil that was corrupting these laws from inside out. Rush has to my ears very well has supported this demon by trying to pass the blame on to other's. This man is a disgrace to talk radio and has to go! I would love to see t-shirts that read RUSH SUPPORTS CHILD PREDATORS go on sale. Please if you have the means go into his archive and listen to this sick jerk spin this off as left wing political calculations and then email him at and let him know that his political views are no long wanted on the air!

This is very scary...
it lends strong credence to paranoid stories such as these:
(which BTW, are becoming harder and harder to find on the net)

Gay child prostitutes in Whitehouse.

It seems that the search censors are hard at work, getting relevant searches on this to be heavily obscured.
ATS has no less than 20 threads dealing with exactly this and previous porn scandals, and the ensuing possible ramifications, yet didn't even show on the first 3 search pages...

but yet, you get massive search results showing unrelated- non porn related scandals...

this also lends credence... why hide it, if there is nothing to fear?

it is becoming harder to ignore these situations, that just dont fit into our beliefs regarding politicians... (we all think they are scum, but child molesters? nah....)

well my fellow posters... now we know... YEAH... they are!
