Unfortunately, I don't think we have to wait too long for the next scandal to hit. :( Hopefully that one will be just as poor as this one.

Internet age of consent is 18, not 16. That person is now 21 years old and the posts were from 2003, QED, he was 18

Not sure where you are getting that. He specifies in the IMs, "Xxxxxxxxxx (8:33:29 PM): ya slow things down a little im still young...like under 18 dont want to do anything illegal...im not 18 till feb 23 Maf54 (8:33:43 PM): i know.. Maf54 (8:33:50 PM): nothing will happen

ABC Statement on revelation IM teen was not a minor:

"We are investigating these vicious attacks on Republican Representative Foley's legacy as a paedophile (did we mention he is a Republican?)."

H&C are dropping the ball on this!

I guess FNC is trying to verify the story on Drudge's site.

Good point! The Demagogues who have been all hot and bothered (hypocritically) about this should now have to explain to THEIR constituents why THEY find sex chatter between two adult homosexuals so disgusting.....

Yes, they will. But I don't forget how hot and heavy the Dems were via Clinton/Monica to give HUGE MSM COVERAGE to the words "oral sex". And now we have bits and pieces of an "oral sex" epidemic happenening in junior high schools.

I'm seeing a parallel to then, and these "released" IMs by the press. It's "porn" on line masquerading as news.

Lots of kids are reading the news -- I should think certain LAWS in place should be enacted and INVOKED by Republicans.

VERY SOON!

So far, that's all rumor and innuendo. Nothing new has emerged. I guess if it does and they were minors, we'll be back in the same boat. But for now it appears this incident may have little lasting power. It's still sleazy, but it's legal. In any event, the whole thing has been totally overblown, 18 or not. It's good Foley resigned, but sheesh, can we get back to focusing on the issues. Foley is gone, but Bin Laden is not.

My understanding is that the Republican party down there is working hard to get the word out that Foley's name will remain on the ballot, but that a vote for Foley is a vote for Negron.

If people understand that, I don't think there will be a problem.

The first IM only talked about having him over for a drink. The man says he will be 18 on Feb 23. This exchange took place over Christmas. The really nasty stuff came after Feb 23... at least that is what I read on the aforementioned blog.

And can legally marry the person to whom he wrote in the state of Massachusetts.

Isn't it amazing, two perverts can marry each other. What a country!

In all seriousness, that is why we have a US Supreme Court to uphold laws of Congress which will restrict such travesties. It would also be a positive step if they would start to defend "life, liberty, and property" and the 2nd Amendment.

Just read the stuff on Edmo at Passionate America. Really weird that he works for Istook's campaign. Curious about his politics. Wonder if he is some kind of mole. The Democrats wouldn't do that, would they?

Mogirl,

No I am really not. I am just trying to get people to step back and look at the facts before accusing this victim of a pederast. Drudge tends to attack the victim in these cases, and I don't see the proof there to pile on with him.

So who went to ABC with the story?
Was it Edmund himself?


I think it was this bogus website set up just a few months ago in order to dump these IM's on the "market" right before the election.

How could an "internet age of consent by 18" but the actual age of consent by 16? That doesn't make any sense.

Geez, you are annoying. The main actual SEX message was from AFTER he was 18. Yes, the friendship started before he turned 18 and it got a little heavy, but the main sexual conversation that was highlighted by ABC and reported to be with an underage boy actually took place once the "kid" was legal age according to the timestamps. I'm not the first one who has said this to you either.

It seems to me, right off the top of my head, that when all this is sorted out it will be deduced that Foley was a homosexual trolling for future lovers.

Right now everyone's confused about when this guy was 18, when the IM's was sent, if there were other Pages that Foley also IM'd.

I'm betting here, using the good common sense God gave me and what keeps me one of the little people, that Foley was a shrewd operator. He likely knew about age limits but he did want to recruit future lovers. Thus those "red flag" emails and requests for birth dates.

If I'm right, Foley's big "crime" was using the congressional Page pool for lovers when they came of age. Surely Foley's not a stupid guy. The Dems want the silly American public to hear the words "Republican" and "homosexual", "underage" and "cybersex" emanating from all this media hysteria and well I don't know what the hell they want. Any fool, even us busy Americans out here in la-la land, can see this is a pre-election frenzy.

The Dems will never get us dummies to accept THEM as the party of chasteness and purity. Remember, THEY had Bill Clinton and just can't shake him off. Americans sure won't buy that every damn Republican with an "R" for a party affiliation should up and quit. The Dems, as always, have overplayed their hand.

Republicans need to handle this and so far they're doing a lousy job.

The ONLY IM that exists before 2/23 and the man's 18th birthday, dealt with banter and an offer to have the young man over for a drink... when he came back through DC. The young man says he wouldn't be of legal drinking age until Feb 23. The salacious IM's are from April on.
