Foley Had Gay Internet Sex with Teen During House Vote

ABC’s Brian Ross, who is to Mark Foley what Greta Van Susteren is to Natalee Holloway, has now uncovered more disturbing IM’s from the former Florida Congressman.

I’ll spare you lengthy excerpts. In it we learn two things, though: At least one of the teens seemed to enjoy Foley’s attention. And Foley’s spelling skills are less than superb.

  1. Steve Verdon says:

    And Foley wanted one teen to come over and have drinks with him.

  2. Anderson says:

    Hey, JJ, *you* try spelling under those conditions .. uh, on second thought, *don’t* try, okay?

    Hey, Steve: from the LA Times review of Woodward’s latest:

    During a meeting in the Oval Office, according to Woodward, Bush personally thanked [Saudi Prince] Bandar because the Saudis had flooded the world oil market and kept prices down in the run-up to the 2004 general election.

    Thought you’d like to know!

  3. Fersboo says:

    according to Woodward

    Ah, the paragon of Truth.

  4. Anderson says:

    “According to Woodward” would indeed be amusing slang for “but who the hell knows, really.”

  5. legion says:

    Yeeegh…. Creepy as all hell and still looking to get worse.

    I’ll be little black raincloud, and start taking bets on how long until Foley’s found in his office with a gun in his mouth.

  6. Bob Woodward….the only person other than a Catholic Priest capable of getting deathbed confessions.
