"What I keep asking people is for proof of that fact.

Doesn't matter much though"

Oh don't kid yourself. It matters! This is going to turn on the dems just like Rather-gate.

My thoughts on this?

This is the Wellstone Funeral II.

There will be more Republicans voting this fall then ever before.

Kinda like that MAJOR STORY that played for weeks and weeks when it was found out that the CLINTOON was getting a BJ while he was discussing tactics concerning the Kosovo conflict with a member of Congress.

I still say we be cautious about this.

It would just be like the Dems and their MSM allies to get all us freepers hopeful and then come out with more messages that proved that Foley was being electronically naughty with minors, if for no other reason to twist the knife.

Hopeful.... but cautious.

Actions have consequences. This episode may spare young Jordan much mysery in the future if he chooses to learn from this whole, lurid, sordid, contrived, confabulated, media-manipulated orchestration toward a planned end. ABC should get the same contempt poured all over them as CBS and Rather.

If the guy was 18 then this story is dead.

Not really the guy was still page i.e. an employee of Congress being solicited for sex by a Congressman...

But then again if ther guy is just under 18 would it make it pedophilia or more statutory rape? .. and that assuming sex...

(If it as a 17 year old girl I wouldn't call it pedophilia but attempted statutory rape)

Foley deserves to get tosses but he more in the Clltion mold of hitting on subordinates vs a child molester

If the kids under 18 it attempted statutory rape over 18 it solicited a suborned for sex

Is it legal for ABC to publish these emails and IMS?

Are there privacy issues here?

What about when they had this "glitch" that showed the youngsters name?

I'd have a suicide watch up for the Democratic National Committee tonight. It blew up in their faces. The American people are going to be so soured against the Dims.

In the IM's, Jordan Edmund worries about his Mom finding out what he's up to. I wonder how Jordan feels now that his Mom can read the total content of his "dirty talk" with a 50+ homosexual?

My guess is she isn't real happy about this. However, her "kid" is now 21 and an adult who can do as he pleases. I feel sorry for his mom but not for him.

Yup, the abuse of authority issue (which didn't seem to matter when Clinton was frolicking with an intern, but I digress) is gone. It looks like the 'underage solicitation' is gone--the really lewd stuff was after the kid turned 18, and it would be *really* hard to make the exchange about getting together for dinner, 'and we'll see' after his 18th birthday stick as an internet solicitation of a minor charge.

Actually, the guy wasn't a page at the time the relationship started. The guy was part of the 2001-2002 "class". The conversations were in 2003.

Pedophilia, for legal purposes, is the children under the age of 16.

To: StoneWall Brigade
It's quite sad that so many would equate a relationship with a 17 or 18 year old as pedophilia. Pedophilia is such a nasty term and gets thrown around way too often, IMO. Kinda like the term "domestic abuse."

The same heterosexual men who blast Foley for being a "pedophile" also find 16-35 year old girls/women attractive. It's not uncommon at all for adult men to check out girls who are late high school and college-aged (some being under 18). Any other conclusion flies in the face of reality.

Likewise, many women find 17 or 18 year old-ish boys attractive. Those women are pedophiles?

Hello,

We have been stepping back, looking at the facts for almost a week. I have seen NO one here that has defended Foley. What I find interesting, is that you will not view this from both sides: Either Foley abused a child ~ OR Foley had an online "relationship" with an adult. It is one or the other.

Glad to be here, MOgirl

What did Brian Ross and ABC know, and when did they know it?

Time for Dan Rath---uh, I mean Brian Ross to answer some tough questions about why they hyped a story deliberately characterizing this adult as an underaged person.

Well if Istook's current efforts are any indication it may have been to sink his campaign. Altho I guess you really can't blame the poor campaigning on the staffers, after all you have to think the person running for office has a little interest in winning.

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

Ding, Ding, Ding-We have a winner !

Let's see how the Democrats and the media spin this tomorrow.
Foley and his internet sex talker could legally be man and man in Massachusetts
at the time the consenting gay adult ( aka the former page ) was describing the length of the his penis to Foley
and how they each masturbated ( shower for Foley, bed for other gay guy ) and kiss kissed each other.
Who knew the Democrats were against gay marriage ?
After all, they described the non page as a helpless child.
Are pigs flying, yet ???

" Now that same-sex marriage is legal in the State of Massachusetts, gay couples (residents or non residents) can apply for a marriage license.
Here are the steps you need to take before getting married in Massachusetts:
Bring your birth certificates.

" You and your partner must be at least 18 years old."

Once again, what's your point? Nothing illegal there. Nothing that could be interpreted as illegal happened until after the guy was legal age which would make it no longer illegal.

As has been said a million times, no one is saying the guy isn't creepy. But that doesn't make him a criminal, which is more or less what ABC was suggesting. They lied. What a surprise.

Cool it, Norm. You and I both know the kid was under 18 duing some of the IMs.

AS you could have learned by READING right hear on this thread, the IMs of a sexual nature came after he turned 18.

You need to find a forum that is more geared to your level as you're like a fish out of water on this board.
