Attorney: Foley Was Molested as a Teen by a Clergyman

WASHINGTON — Former Rep. Mark Foley was molested between the ages 13 and 15 by a clergyman, his attorney Mark Roth told reporters late Tuesday.

Foley also wants Americans to know that he is a gay man but he never had sexual contact with a minor, Roth said. Foley was admitted on Saturday night to a mental health facility, where he will remain for at least 30 days.

Roth said Foley wanted to release the name and religious affiliation where his alleged molestation occurred, but was advised by civil counsel to delay naming names at this time. However, details of the clergyman, the timeframe and the situation will be released when counsel advises Foley to do so.

I believe it. That's a common route to fagdom. The child identifies with his tormentor.

If he had gotten help before he was caught, I'd be impressed. He didn't and I'm not. Not impressed, not buying the bullsh-t.

Sorry, I'm not. The 'timing' of the release of this was a calculated ploy by the rats. This all happened back in, like, 2003.

Michael Reagan was molested as a child. As far as I know he didn't take it out on boys as an adult.

He may well have been molested. Who knows. I don't give a damn at this point. It's up to him and his family to deal with his sickness. He'll get no sympathy here.

Oh. Well by all means, that clears things up.

He's now a victim and a homosexual. Shouldn't he then be the new liberal hero?

If this is true it does far more damage to the homosexual agenda than Foley's own IMing. This places the must me monitored over the lifestyle like nothing else could.

Foley, you've done enough damage, don't try and indict the Church as well. You were an adult when you committed these acts.

But not everyone who was molested is a molester.

Once he changes his party registration to democrat, that's when all the fabulaous parties and invitation to Oprah will begin for him.

It may not be a crime, but it's very, very creepy. The "Creep-o-Meter" registered off the scale.

Has this been confirmed Howlin? All I know for sure is that the pages were former pages when contacted (a point totally lost by the media).
