Just breaking on CNN
read the article at this thread .. then follow the posts I made
Thanks for the info
Good point. I probably just registered myself on some FBI list.
But you can't deny the dirty Rats are usually out for blood right before an election, can you?
I think we have decent people on here, who needed more proof of explicit email other than "what do you want for your birthday"?...
So now we have it..and it is sad, sick, and a crying shame..OK?
I skimmed the first 100 post but saw no mention of Fox whose name appears in the Title....
Who the hell is Fox? If you can tell me I'd appreciate it...
"Proving the maxim yet again that to lose an election, an incumbent needs to be caught in bed with a dead woman or a live boy."
Good thing Teddy doesn't own a water bed.
"Who the hell is Fox? If you can tell me I'd appreciate it..."
I believe they are referring to fox news being the source (rather than cnn which most folks here have a major problem with regarding reliability).
Where are these emails posted? I'm a little afraid of reading them....but some posts would probably make sense to me. I'm keeping him on my list....want to see if he has the guts to get back on.
Yeah, I just read the entire document.
If you live your life under a microscope, you shouldn't be doing stuff that will wreck your reputation.
They're actually IMs; not emails...
I find that pretty odd, along with the time questions you raised. Reading through the IMs quickly though, I'm not sure that Foley looked to conceal his identity. And that too is odd given internet opportunities for anonymous cheap thrills.
"First, the governor calls for a special election to fill Foley's seat for the lame duck session."
Well, I'm not sure about Florida laws, but most states require 90 days before a special election can be held, from the time the governor calls for one.
I don't think there's time for all that.
I think what's actually going to happen is that the Florida GOP, or the Republican group in that district will name some sacrificial lamb to take Foley's place. Then they'll just walk away and let two years go by and run a real candidate in the next election.
Your opinion may differ.
Man were a bunch of hypocrites.I hate reading the posts like "if it were a kennedy he'd get a pass".I DO NOT CARE WHICH PARTY HE IS FROM!!!!!!!. The loser must be called for what he he is,A sick perverted freak.Please stop making excuses for him if republicans lose this district then so be it, stop hitting on underage boys.Sometimes this website makes me sick when I read the excuses we'll give to our own......
Keep us posted as they go through the steps and I hope they have every "t" crossed and "i" dotted in this one.
"The issue is whether or not there is some popular state senator or supervisor or mayor around.
No, the real issue is whether or not there is some popular candidate who is willing to step in to this mess. I doubt it.
Log Cabin Republicans lobby specifically for "gay" rights. They are Republicans primarily to promote "gay" rights, not to promote the conservative agenda.
This is not about Charlie Crist. This is about Mark Foley. You're on the wrong thread. The Terri thread is somewhere else.
Wow...embarrassing. Kind of sad....I take away desperate, lonely, pathetic...
Bottom line -- can it be accomplished before the election?
I am totally disgusted. What a perverted fool.
Foley shouldn't have resigned -- terrible move. They're coughing up stuff from '03 just prior to his '06 reelection bid? Why didn't they use the material just prior to the '04 election? Oh yeah, that's right, Foley wasn't up for reelection that election cycle.
That is really weird, why would someone WAIT to turn him in, and allow children to be in danger?
He's in the House- every 2 years
and these IM's are from 2005
No doubt about it..he had to resign.
He's a member of the House, right? They're up for reelection every two years.
Whoever had these IMs in '03 was "smart enough" NOT to release them for the '04 election (as Foley wasn't up for reelection *THAT* year),
Check your facts.
"Log Cabin Republicans lobby specifically for "gay" rights. They are Republicans primarily to promote "gay" rights, not to promote the conservative agenda."
I would say that is a slight distortion of the Log Cabin Republicans. Painting with a broad brush I would say Log Cabin Republicans are typcilly more fiscally conservative while obviously more liberal when it comes to social issues. Of course promoting their lifestyles is part of being a politically active gay person. Would a politically active muslim, native american, christian, asian, etc. ever argue against their own belief system? In rare cases maybe but of course you are going to try and promote things which you think will benefit you. To say there are no aspects of the conservative agenda the log cabin republicans support is a bit of a stretch. To say they do not support the conservative social agenda would be closer to the truth.
The IMs are from 2005
He's in the HoR and THEREFORE is up for reelection every 2 years.
"Well, maybe the "kid" has some issues as well...so he needs help too??"
No doubt, but the "kid" is not a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Nah, its west palm beach.
Oh liberal land. lol.
"Foley shouldn't have resigned -- terrible move. They're coughing up stuff from '03 just prior to his '06 reelection bid? "
Oh, please...he shouldn't have resigned? He's a teenager-chasing creep. Of course he should have resigned. The question is not about that...the question is whether anything can be done to save this seat.
If you want to argue FOR him, then you're in the wrong place.
|Whoever had these IMs in '03 was "smart enough" NOT to release them for the '04 election (as Foley wasn't up for reelection *THAT* year), but rather knew to alert the media (just) prior to his '06 reelection (for maximum effect).
He's in the House and is up for re-election every election cycle.
Drudge posted them.
Ok..just got back from my cocktail with hubby...lol.
You got a point there..however..I get the impression that that XXXXXXXXX(the 'boy') knew exactly who he was talking to and Mr. Foley knew who he was talking to(or thought he did). I actually read a gay guy on one of the 'news' forums saying that it was not unusual that gay people have their first experience with older men(i know it's sick)..but he was acting like it was no big deal. We are going on a big assumption too..that what ABC reported about these PM's being from former 'pages' is true.
Yep, I was wrong. :O)
Thanks for the link.
"I just added MAF54 to my AOL buddy list....LOL. He's not on."
lol...he is probably busy booking his ticket to Thailand.
(sorry folks, my humor is a bit off color tonight)
No person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the age of twenty five years, and been seven years a citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an inhabitant of that state in which he shall be chosen.
You don't have to live in the district just the state.
ROFLMAO! You're weird.
and that lessens ANY of what he said?
You just can't justify pedophila, no matter how you try....
That's the only place he will be able to show his face....he might as well go. Course, I read that if he wants to continue his career...he should move to San Francisco...change to a Democrat... He'd be welcomed with open arms. LOL
Only if the candidate was a Democrat in New Jersey.
House members are up for reelection EVERY two years? When did THIS happen? LOL. Every two years? That sounds like a huge pain! ...
"Shoot [glances at calendar hanging on wall in old corrugated shed]... time to change my oil [and campaign] again! ..."
Honestly, had no idea (thought it was every 4 years). I goofed.
