WASHINGTON, Oct. 25 A liberal gay rights group said Wednesday that one of its employees, acting anonymously, had created the Web site that first published copies of unusually solicitous e-mail messages to teenagers from former Representative Mark Foley, which led to his resignation.
A spokesman for the group, the Human Rights Campaign, said it first learned of its employees role this week and immediately fired him for misusing the groups resources. The scandal surrounding Mr. Foley, a Florida Republican, has been a burdensome distraction for members of his party in the month before the midterm elections, and some Republicans have speculated that the e-mail messages were planted by a Democrat.
The rights campaigns spokesman, David Smith, said the employee, whose name he declined to disclose, was a junior staff member hired last month to help mobilize the organizations members in Michigan. The minute we learned about it we took decisive action, Mr. Smith said.
The Miami Herald and other news organizations have acknowledged obtaining copies of the same e-mail messages months ago but declining to publish them because of their potentially ambiguous contents.

Did Foley get an apology from the group?
No? Thought so.
There's more to this firing than misuse of groups resources.
Which was it? Was he resign or did he get fired? If you get fired you can't resign from job.
"Gay rights group punishes (gay?) staffer for outing gay pedophile - it's Bush's fault!"
Speaking of Foley, Congress should take the next logical step and condemn all sodomites as a menace to public health.
Yeah, he got CAUGHT by the Pajama People.
The DNC Brownshirts can't fool me.
Smoking is a menace to "public health" but AIDS is a personal decision. < /s >
I believe American taxpayers have spent at least $200 billion on AIDS. Politicians and gays would have us believe that AIDs comes from the tooth fairy.
