Okay, so the whole Rep. Mark Foley thing is disgusting on so many levels. This has been blogged about, but I just thought it bore repeating:
The GOP leadership knew!!!!!!! They knew and they did not do a goddamn thing to stop this bastard!! There are not enough exclamation points in the world to express how angry I am about this!!!!!
Bad enough that they trample the Constitution, rape the Geneva Conventions, give civil liberties a big "fuck you!" -- but now this. They put at risk of harassment and abuse children, children whose parents are their constituents, and who trusted them. Not only that, but they put a man SOLICITING MINORS FOR SEXUAL CONVERSATION in charge of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children!! What, did they think he had some sort of special knowledge of how this scum would approach kids??????
Okay. A little better now. But I sincerely hope that whoever helped sweep all this under the rug goes down, and hard, for covering up Foley's little "peccadilloes". Fucks.
