Foley's Follies...

From Politcal Humor...

The Mark Foley Scandal, in Their Own Words

Congressman Mark Foley (R-Fla.): "Do I make you a little horny?"
Teen: "A little."
Foley: "Cool."
--from the transcript of a sexually explicit IM chat Foley had with a 16-year-old male, the revelation of which prompted him to resign

"Overly friendly." --the initial characterization of Mark Foley's emails by House Speaker Dennis Hastert's office

"And, and, and my position is it's in his corner, it's his responsibility." --House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH), blaming House Speaker Dennis Hastert for the page scandal

"I hate to tell you, but it's not always pretty up there on Capitol Hill, and there have been other scandals as you know that have been more than simply naughty emails." --White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, downplaying the Foley pedophilia scandal

"Anybody even contemplating a sexual offense against a child, understand your life will be ruined." --Rep. Mark Foley, co-founder of Congressional Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus

"They're sick people. They need mental health counseling. They certainly don’t need to be interacting with children." --Mark Foley, on pedophiles, in 2002

“We track library books better than we track pedophiles." --Mark Foley, talking to America's Most Wanted in 2001

“Well, if I were one of these sickos, I'd be nervous with America’s Most Wanted on my trail." --Mark Foley, in 2001

"It's vile. It's more sad than anything else, to see someone with such potential throw it all down the drain because of a sexual addiction." --Mark Foley, on Bill Clinton, in 1998
