I am really getting sick of the right wing spinning the sexual abuse of a minor into a big rant against homosexuality.
Former Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) is involved in an internet sex scandal involving 15-16 year old congressional pages. The page program allows High School students to intern for Congress people and see how the government works. A series of emails between Foley and a 16 year old were released that showed Foley speaking inappropriately about another young boys body and requesting a picture of the page. This forced Foley to resign. Since then several others have come forward with emails and IM conversations asking them to measure their penises, to tell him about masturbation habits, sexual history, blowjobs from girlfriends, if they are getting horny, etc, etc, etc.
It has been a well known Washington secret that Foley is a closet homosexual. That, in and of itself is not a problem…other than maybe the fact that he is in a party who hates homosexuals, but that is another issue entirely. The issue here is that this bastard used his position as a Congressman to start sexually explicit internet relationships with children. Now you have the nut job right wing going off about homos!!!! What the hell is wrong with these people? This is a mental sickness. Having sex with children is a sickness, not a result of being a homosexual! Have a look at some of these morons below from Think Progress and other sources.
