You aren't getting it are you? If the recipient of the IMs was 18, as we now believe, than there is NO CRIME. Get it?
Oh yeah there is no question about that
BTTT. Lots of filthy hands in this whole thing. Just need to string them together.
That trick won't work on me. Check my bookmarks and the dates of some of the threads IOW I'm not a sleeper account. Been here quite a spell actually. Even those who don't like me will tell you that.
Plus it knocked Woodward off the front pages and off the tv shows.
hardy har har!
it was CNN and it was a driveby piece with no documentation.
Unless Jordan released the IM's to them, they're likely to be forced to disclose in court how they got them.
Even if he revealed them to a friend, who then passed them on, ABC by its own actions demonstrated that it believed it had a legal obligation to protect his identity. It's just that they screwed that up for a few minutes---long enough for someone out there in cyberland to get a screencap of their mistake.
I missed it. This is a loooong thread. I'll check your posts. :)
Maybe this 18 old man and former page was hitting on Foley.
Its not in this thread i said when this first started
I quibble with your assertion that "public perception means everything."
Rovian Politics 101 proves that "the perception of your base means everything."
This will fire up the base big-time, much to the Rats' amazement. On top of ole Bubba and the Hildabeast acting crazy and flinging whoppers last week, I say: Rove, you magnificant dog, you.
Was this Jordan person trying to set Foley up? Or was he...um...agreeing to the attention?
Either way, the point that is never made adequately in this reporting of Foley as predator, is that IMing is two-way communication. Foley is terminally stupid to engage in this kind of behavior, but any recipient of his IMs that did not want to continue the "chat" would simply not have continued to respond.
Not that I'm aware of. I was referencing what he "said" in the IM's.
On tv I watched it twice. Normally on a station and show I never watch but my wife caught it. He was a congressional page 1996-97 and was 16-17 years old. The contact took place in I would guess 1997 2-3 months after his term as page was up and he returned home.
Yeah, for FR it ought to say "hugh manatee," but I didn't make it. :)
Brief synopsis then, please. I don't know what you're talking about regarding this situation.
