Mark Foley gets the Ripon's Society Rough
Rider Award. Pun at will.
Back in the day, people used to call predators like Foley, chickenhawks, men who liked boys. They would cruise around for teenagers to have sex with.
We don't know how many kids and young men Foley may have seduced, even raped, while in Congress,but I'd bet you could find a lot of people who could testify to his predatory nature. .
This is a simple point: anyone who defends the House leadership in this is defending a CHLD SEX PREDATOR. No question, and it's Foley who wrote the law.
When Assrocket and the rest of Ass Clown Media defend Hastert and Boehner, just nail them to the wall "are you defending a CHILD SEX PREDATOR and those who would protect them? "
They raise Gerry Stubbs, who was censured by the House in 1983 for banging a 17 year old page, just say"Newt Gingrich was right in that they should have been expelled. But that was 20 years ago. The laws and social attutudes have changed. Child Sex Predators need to be jailed, Period, not protected by the House leadership, a leadership which left him in contact with other children until forced to deal with this.:
I didn't know membership in the GOP came with a membership in NAMBLA as well.
The same Republicans who want to control stem cells and outlaw abortion, let a known child sex predator remain not only in the House, but their leadership.
If Nancy Pelosi had done this, she'd be chased from the House with pitchforks and sermons from Robertson and Falwell as a matter of course. Denny Hastert was a teacher. He knows this is dangerous behavior. Yet, for whatever reasons, he protected a child sexual predator.
The moral corruption of this is astounding, beyond even what I imagined. We shouldn't let anyone pretend otherwise.
