Republican values

Looks like the Democrats just picked up a House seat:

Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) planned to resign today, hours after ABC questioned him about sexually explicit internet messages with current and former Congressional pages under the age of 18.

Hours earlier, ABC News had read excerpts of instant messages provided by former pages who said the congressman, under the AOL Instant Messenger screen name Maf54, made repeated references to sexual organs and acts.

Hmm. Not exactly the kind of behavior one expects from the chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. In the words of, um… Rep. Mark Foley:

“For too long our nation has tracked library books better than it has sex offenders. That day is coming to an end,”

It certainly is.

It is unclear whether Florida law allows the GOP to replace Foley on the ballot. In any case, Democratic challenger Tim Mahoney has been running a credible campaign in a district that tilts Republican, but not irreversibly. Thus I think you’d have to say that FL-16 has instantly shifted from a longshot, to a near certain Democratic pick-up.

UPDATE:
“I am deeply sorry and I apologize for letting down my family and the people of Florida I have had the privilege to represent,” Rep. Foley said in a statement.

Hmm. Well, if he really is “deeply sorry,” I’ve got a suggestion for how he can show it.

Rep. Foley is currently sitting on a $2.8 million war chest, much of it left over from a dashed US Senate bid. Typically, that money might go to the NRCC’s campaign coffers, to help elect other Republicans.

But if Rep. Foley really wants to show some contrition, he should donate it all to the Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

We all have personal failings of one sort or another. At least this way Rep. Foley might achieve some good out of his. So send him an email and encourage Rep. Foley to do the right thing. For the kids.

UPDATE, UPDATE:
ABC News has released a transcript of Rep. Foley’s instant messaging log. Oh my. Shades of Jim West.

UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE:
It turns out that the Republican House leadership knew almost a year ago that Foley was having sex talk with underage pages, and yet they let him remain as chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children.

The page worked for Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-La., who said Friday that when he learned of the e-mail exchanges 10 to 11 months ago, he called the teen’s parents. Alexander told the Ruston Daily Leader, “We also notified the House leadership that there might be a potential problem,” a reference to the House’s Republican leaders.

Um… when we talk about the lack of oversight in Congress, this is the type of shit we’re referring to. The GOP leadership has totally lost its compass.

UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE:
This has just become a HUGE scandal. Expect to see calls for Speaker Hastert’s resignation. This is inexcusable.

    Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla., submitted a letter of resignation from Congress on Friday in the wake of questions about e-mails he wrote a former male page, according to a congressional official. Foley, 52, had been considered a shoo-in for re-election until the e-mails surfaced in recent days.

    Here is YOUR Republican party in action…and I MEAN action!!!

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Congressman Mark Foley, Republican from Florida, resigned today just hours after ABC news questioned him about a series of sexually explicit instant messages involving current and former underage male Congressional pages. Foley used the login name Maf54.

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

    Foley was the chairman of the house caucus on missing and exploited children and has long crusaded for tough laws against those who use the Internet for sexual exploitation of children.

    How about Rep. Barney Frank’s(D-MA) illicit affair with prostitute Steven Gobie, who ran his gay prostitution ring out of Frank’s Washington apartment? The Democrats “believed” his excuse: He simply didn’t know about those multiple illegal “escorts” farmed in and out of his home by his own boyfriend. Barney didn’t know about his boyfriend’s prostitution ring!!!! Yeah, right!

    JCH,

    The issue is not one of sexuality. The issue is one of unwanted and inappropriate contact with a minor who is 16 years of age.

    I could care less if Foley is gay, straight, bi-sexual, Taliban or Islamic. He is a possible sexual predator, that is the issue and he agrees, he resigned. I commend him for that.

    Can you cite any case where Frank has been implicated in a similar situation?

    Good morning to you also!

    I am going to take some shit from my side, but you ain’t nearly all bad.

    Another TJ says Foley’s the district’s partisan index is +2.4

    From “The Cook Report:”

    The Partisan Voting Index (PVI) is a measurement of how each district performs compared to the nation as a whole. A PVI score of D+2.3, for example, means that in the 2000 Presidential election, the district performed an average of 2.3 percentage points more Democratic than the nation as a whole, while an R+3.8 score means that the district performed 3.8 percentage points more Republican than did the nation.

    I work on average 55-60 hours a week for a 40 hour paycheck. I like tax cuts, and I am not rich!

    Wow. Well, you’re a little dumber than I thought. I fail to see any particular virtue here.

    I like safety. So kill the islamofascists over there so they don’t visit here.

    Right now wer’re busy trianing a whole new generation of Muslim militants to hate and oppose us for the next fifty years. Lordy, and they werent even there before we invaded Iraq! I shouldn’t be, but I guess I am surprised that you refuse to see the folly of trying to kill one’s way out of a terrorist threat. Counterterrorism is almost entirely a hearts and minds operation. Bombs, guns, armies, torturing thousands of carelessly screened detainees, not so much.

    I like freedom of speech so as long as donk are not in charge we’ll have it.

    One might ask you, as others did in response to the detainee adn torture bill, if you have any cases n mind that would support such a claim.

    Can you imagine if GOldie was a Repub, the deonk in congress would threaten him like they did to ABC?

    I had never befor looked this up, but finally decided to. Democrats sent a letter that in part reminded ABC of its obligations under the the Communications Act of 1934. Nowhere was mentioned any action against ABC, nowhere was mentioned ABC’s “license,” NOTHING. And considering that the Republicans run both the Congress AND the FCC, it would be a particulary ridiculous and toothless “threat” if is WAS one, which it clearly is not.

    Why are you on the wrong side of abortion, gay marriage
    We’re not. We’re on the RIGHT side of medical privacy and equal protection under the law. Why do you oppose privacy and fairness?

    lowering the age of sexual consent to 12, islamofascism?
    Not Democratic positions. Straw man.

    Tell me your plan to keep America safe? No platitudes like Daddy Love gave last week.

    Well, first, we plan to get into a position to make changes by exposing Republican corruption and incompetence until the American people realize how badly they want a change.

    Then, until Demcrats run the Executive, we will implement the 9/11 Comission recommendations, implement the Demcoratic Party security measure from the platform. Detailed plans for these measures exist, in the platform itelf, in white papers from universties and think tanks, and so on. If I bullet point them you’ll mve on and accuse me of “plattudes,” So read for yourself. If you can.

    Honestly, you should look in the mirror before you fling crap about “platitudes.”

    How do you plan to kill them:
    Talk them to death?
    Blow your bad breath on them?
    Fart in their face?
    Give them looooooooooove?

    Don’t you understand? Russia has been feeding them arms for decades and they attack the hand that feeds them. You are soooooooooooo STUUUUUUUUUPIIIIIIIIIIIIID!

    As far as his Congressional seat, I don’t know what his district is like, but he was so strong there that he probably has a weak challenger, and I wouldn’t be surprised (because Foley’s name will still be on the ballot) if Florida Republicans will cast their votes for a child molester if he has an R behind his name.

    I just read the Gorelick memo (at the DoJ: http://www.usdoj.gov/ag/testim.....k_memo.pdf)

    Honestly, I don’t see in it the crap you guys have been flinging for a decade about it.

    Gorelick says we should not imperil criminal prosecutions by sloply allowing FISA information to be used improperly. Do you want federal criminal prosecutions to fail?

    Gorelick says that an Assistan US Attornay (Mary White, AUSA for Southern New York) will act as intermediary, to make SURE that evidence of criminal activity gained from FISA terrorism surveillance gets to the criminal investigators and prosecutors, and to make SURE that evidence of terrorist activity gets from criminal investigators to counterterrorist agencies. The AUSA is also there to make SURE that there are no IMPROPER contacts between such agencies that would taint investigations and provide defense attorneys with grounds for mistrial or acquittal. Do you favor compromised investigations and prosecutions?

    Those are yes or no questions.

    The corruption of the Republican leadership goes far beyond tradng money for votes, though they certainly did that. This is just another reminder to the American people why they do not deserve our trust, our votes, or a postion of leadership.

    Sometimes I think I have run out of outrage. I think, “Well, OF COURSE Republicans are gay perverts and pedophiles!” But what gripes me most, and I just heard, for example, news reports about Rumsfeld not taking Condoleeza Rice’s phone calls, is that the GOP seems to have NO sense of duty, NO sense of honor, NO sense of the responsibility of public office, NO wish at all to enter public service to, you know, serve the public. It’s all about power and their own selfish ends. It amazes and disgusts me.

    I’m only glad that America’s waking up to the same realization.

    I get sick of hearing the Republican talking point “The Democrats don’t have a plan” spewed from slimy GOP lips over and over.

    I do know who has a plan. Republicans. They plan on taking bribes, running our debt to the moon, screwing 99% of Americans so the top 1% can buy new Ferrarris every year.

    They have a plan for Iraq best of all. Their plan is to ignore all facts, and realities. Lie their asses off, and blow sunshine while the place turns to sh*t, and make every mistake possible, and lie to cover them up. When it comes to managing a war, I would trust any Democrat over and Republican hands down.

    There is no way anyone could have messed up this bad (Iraq) by accident. I think Bush wanted Chaos so he could play war chief longer, and keep the price of oil as high as possible. It is now backfiring in spades, and it is our troops that are having to pay WITH THEIR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyone that supports Bush should go enlist RIGHT NOW and stop typing. Go die for Herr Fuhrer.

    Just don’t pretend you are serving your country. I know you want to serve your country, but following orders from Bush, and Rummy is actually hurting our country. Big time. Bush has made our troops make us less safe, by doing their duty. Gotta suck.

    All facts support that statement by the way.

    Warning: If you are a young male page working in congress, please, please be careful, there are Republicans around. When working as a page do not, ever bend over in front of a male republican, or smile at him. Do not even make eye contact, or mention anything they are wearing. If you catch their attention they may creep you out. These Republicans are dangerous, and should be treated with extrems caution. If any Republican makes sexual advances to you, or any of your friends, please report it to THE DEMOCRATS. Reporting inappropriate behavior to Republicans would be a waste of time, and probably only lead to more sexual advances.

    Don Joe spews:

    MWS:

    I’ll tackle some of these:

    “you support gay marriage by voting donk.”

    Already answered rather adequately above by someone else.

    “you support We here, we queer, I’ll bend over you pack it here”

    No, I support the notion that the Government should stay out of people’s bedrooms. Democrats read tawdry books in the privacy of their own homes. Republicans form censorship committees and read them as a group.

    “you support islamofascists by trying to give people who have no country or uniform Geneva Convention rights.”

    So does Sen McCain (R-AZ). For that matter, so does Colin Powell. If Powell actually ran for President, he’s one Republican who’d very likely get my vote.

    “you support the ACLU push to lower consent age to 12.”

    This is complete bullshit. Read here for a thorough debunking of that canard. Since your picture of the ACLU is this distorted, we can presume that all the other claims you make about the ACLU are equally abhorent to the actual truth.

    “you support artistes who put the cross in urine jars”

    No. In order to support such artists, I’d have to buy their art. Rather, I support their freedom to express their opinion with regard to what many people who claim to be Christian have done to the Christian faith. Personally, I’d point such “Christians” to Matt. 7:21-23, but, apparently, some of them don’t read very well.

    Sorry WOS. The FBI happens to think waterboarding and the other “alternative methods” are ineffective. So the next time you have that “waterboarding” feeling, just focus on the here and now (i.e. reality) and let the feeling pass.

    KSM just gave up some stuff in the talking stages. Very little of value. They tried to get more stuff by threatening to harm his children – they failed.

    Here’s a quote from the One Percent Solution:

    “The traditional methods of debriefing, used by both FBI and CIA, involved the building of a relationship, no matter how long and arduous a process. It’s the need for some human contact, some basic comfort, rather than simply the bottomless human fear, which ultimately triumphs. The captive’s previous life starts to fade and is slowly replaced by one constructed, often ingeniously, by his captors. This method, which the FBI still recommends, was canceled out by what they did to KSM. That’s the gamble. Once you do something as horrible as threaten someone’s children, and it doesn’t work — there’s nowhere else to go.”

    Sorry WOS – you’re as brainwashed as the Islamists.

Sorry that happens but when you meet the enemy, you use all the force necessary to destroy him (paraphrased Four Star General Colin Powell 1991) I guess the B-17 Stratofortress, B-24 Liberator & B-29 Superstratofortress carpet bombing of Germany in WWII was a mistake? Per For Throughtly Clueless it was.

    WOS – I apologize for giving you the benefit of the doubt. You’re not yet ready to abandon the mental disorder of wingnuttia.

    What the hell, I know it’s useless but I’ll engage your points:

    Hershey Highway the only way: WTF? Hell I agree with you. I respect and celebrate diversity.

    Tax cuts: who doesn’t like them? I just like my kids not having to pay for the mistakes of their parents.

    Safety: check. I believe in neutralizing those who wish us harm. I just don’t believe in killing innocent people and creating more terrorists.

    Freedom of speech: WTF? Did Bill Clinton keep you from melting your ears with Limbaugh and your eyes from Drudge, WND, Moonie Times, etc.? I was all for the ABC docutrash, that’s what TV movies are for – all they had to do was delete the lies.

    Abortion: safe legal and rare. People need more freedom and options in their lives not less.

    Gay marriage: against it. Marriage is the province of religion. Civil unions grant gay couple survivor benefits, things like that things they should have. If priests and ministers want to marry gays, it’s up to them.

    Lowering age of consent: WTF? against it. 18 is fine with me.

    Islamofascism: no such thing. Just brainwashed people who want to kill those don’t want to jackboot with them.

    Plan: redeploy out of Iraq to Afghanistan with NATO, get bin Laden, al-Zawahiri. If civilization is threatened by these people then a multilateral strategy is what’s required. Finish the job there. Bring the country out of the middle ages. It’s doable and it’s cheaper than creating more terrorists in Iraq.

    I don’t want to kill anybody if it’s not necessary.

    Understand? Fuck you, asshole.

    Commentby Leftist Looney— 9/29/06@ 12:35 pm

    That is actually old. Drudge had in frontpage yesterday. The emails were not inappropriate.

    ABC News reported Friday that Foley participated in sexually explicit instant messages with teenage male pages. In one exchange, Foley wrote: “Do I make you a little horny?” In another, he wrote, “You in your boxers, too? . . . Well, strip down and get naked.” Nothing that Drudge would consider inappropriate, so long as it was coming from a Republican.

    But hey, investigate him. If it is found inappropriate, unlike liberals who defend their politicians inappropriate sex acts, I will be all for prosecuting him to the full extent of the law.

    Let’s see. We’re equating child molestation with consensual sex. Oh, if it’s a Republican, then it’s just normal sex. Yes, President Clinton should have kept his zipper closed, but Ms. Lewinski was a consenting adult.

    But of course you aren’t advocating we rush to throw him away without due process nwo are you? Why that is the same thing you liberals are accusing Bush of doing with this bill.

    No, and I am even willing to give him full credit for resigning as soon as the scandal came out. I can think of at least one Democrat that should follow his lead. But then, Rep Jefferson is only accused of bribery and corruption. At least he doesn’t molest young boys, while serving as the chairman of the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children’s Caucus.

    “Hypocrits.”

    My sentiments exactly.

    I like safety. So kill the islamofascists over there so they don’t visit here.

    I like freedom of speech so as long as donk are not in charge we’ll have it. Can you imagine if GOldie was a Repub, the deonk in congress would threaten him like they did to ABC?

    Why are you on the wrong side of abortion, gay marriage, lowering the age of sexual consent to 12, islamofascism?

    Tell me your plan to keep America safe? No platitudes like Daddy Love gave last week.

    How do you plan to kill them:
    Talk them to death?
    Blow your bad breath on them?
    Fart in their face?

    Gray Coyote spews:

    Mark Foley was most violating Florida law doing what he did. In Florida, the age of consent is 18 under most circumstances, and only 16 and 17 with a close in age exemption.

    Washington law is a little different, as our age of consent is age 16 unless you’re in a position of power and authority over such 16 and 17 year old and you’re over 5 years older than said minor.

    Now, I’m certainly not defending the piece of shit. The guy is definitely a hypocrite, and for that reason alone he should fry. He was a closeted moron who was a hypocrite, and filled with quite a lot of self hatred.

    However, I’ve seen the term “pedophile” used to define Foley. If Foley was attracted to pre-pubescent children, then he certainly would be. He still may be (there is an absence of evidence, which doesn’t mean it isn’t true).

    Everyone should more focus on the fact that the guy is a POS hypocrite closetcase. Mark Foley was outed as “closet gay” two years ago, and as a result it costed him a US Senate race without him even admitting that he’s gay. What’s even worse is that he was in a position of authority and power over said pages. In this situation, age matters little, but power does matter.

    Moonbats, I have to agree with you on this one. What is done in the dark of night God will show in the light of day.

    He needs to go and any laws broken should be thrown at him with the full extent of the law. This sucks all over. I agree if Hastert covered this up he should go. There is no double standard in my book. I don’t live by double standards. Now if Hastert told him to leave and Foley said no, then I can clear Hastert. This stinks.

    See moonbats, when shit stinks I say clean it up.

    No member of Congress should be e-mailing personal messages of any kind to any 16 year old page. This Congressman instant messaged explicit sexual things with a 16 year old page. He did the right thing by resigning. However – where was the leadership of the House for the past year? It was hiding the crime. Who is running the place?

    Barney Frank was subject to a vote in the US House reprimanding him for his behaviour. He made an articulate apology on the House floor. There was a bi-partisan consensus that the House not expell Barney Frank but rather leave the representation of his district up to the people there.
