We all know what a Foley Artist is, right?
“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.
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.
“The language gets much more graphic, too graphic to be broadcast, and at one point the congressman appears to be describing Internet sex.”
ABC’s Terry Moran informs us.
But just to make sure precisely how graphic supplies us with an Acrobat file.
The symetry is perfect. A network pretending to be shocked by a pedophile mkaes sure to give as all the details of his crime. It matches Foley who has engineered all sorts of legislation against internet sex, pushes DOMA and hasn’t met a piece of anti-gay legislation he doesn’t like.
All hail Mike Rogers who has been charting Foley’s hypocrisy since 2003. In fact, I can’t think of anyone who has been “outed” more relentlessly by Blogistan, and ignored by the “mainstream.” But now that these red-hot e-mails have surfaced they’re all over the story
“Rep. 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.
Alexander said he did not pursue the matter further because “his parents said they didn’t want me to do anything.”
Carl Forti, a spokesman for the GOP campaign organization, said Reynolds learned from Alexander that the parents did not want to pursue the matter. Forti said, however, that the matter did go before the House Page Board — the three lawmakers and two House officials who oversee the pages.
It was unclear what the officials did.”
Obviously nothing. But you can’t tell me the Republican leadership didn’t know what Foley has been up to until today.
“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.”
Foley was a member of the Republican leadership, serving as a deputy whip. He also was a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.”
He sure knows a lot about Missing and Exploited Children, doncha think?
“In 2003, Foley faced questions about his sexual orientation as he prepared to run for Sen. Bob Graham’s seat. At a news conference in May of that year, he said he would not comment on rumors he was gay. He later decided not to seek the Senate seat to care for his parents.”
Apparently he was more concerned about the parents of potential tricks.
“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.
He said Foley asked for his e-mail when the boy gave him a thank you card. The boy also said Foley wrote that he e-mailed another page.
“he’s such a nice guy,” Foley wrote about the other boy. “acts much older than his age…and hes in really great shape…i am just finished riding my bike on a 25 mile journey now heading to the gym…whats school like for you this year?”
In other e-mails, Foley wrote, “I am back in Florida now…its nice here…been raining today…it sounds like you will have some fun over the next few weeks…how old are you now?” and “how are you weathering the hurricane…are you safe…send me an email pic of you as well.”
What the boy wrote to Foley, who is single, wasn’t available.”
“Single”? Foley has a boyfriend who has been living with him for years. Wonder where he is now.
“The e-mails were sent from Foley’s personal account, which Foley spokesman Jason Kello says he uses to communicate with many people, including the governor.
Efforts to reach the boy were unsuccessful, but he told the St. Petersburg Times last November, “I thought it was very inappropriate. After the one about the picture, I decided to stop e-mailing him back.” The Times didn’t publish the comments until Friday.”
“Alexander said the boy notified a staffer in his office about the e-mails. The congressman said he learned of it from a reporter 10 or 11 months ago and promptly called the boy’s parents.
“My concern then was the young man’s interests and the parents’ interests,” Alexander said Friday. “We weren’t trying to protect anybody except the parents. … They told me they were comfortable with it and didn’t want to pursue anything, didn’t want to talk about it anymore.”
So they know their kid’s gay and don’t want their own names to get out? Why try to “protect” these parents at all?
Ah America — land of genteel pedophilia. Only appearances matter.
We shall hear more of this loathesome charade.
Quite soon, I trust.
And it won’t be pretty.
