Foley Investigation Grows, As Former Pages Step Forward

Federal investigators who have interviewed several former pages have unearthed instances of conduct by former Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) that will almost certainly lead to a full criminal investigation to determine whether the former lawmaker violated federal sex crime laws, government officials briefed on the matter told the New York Times Tuesday.

The Times reports that prosecutors have yet to issue subpoenas or search warrants but have discussed ways to safeguard evidence in the case, the officials said, possibly issuing what are known as preservation letters, directing government agencies or private entities, like Internet providers, not to destroy any electronic data that might be relevant.

Meanwhile, a former House page said coworkers were uneasy about former Foley's behavior in his congressional freshman year in 1995.

Mark Beck-Heyman told the Washington Post warnings were circulated to steer clear of Foley, R-Fla., after he began inviting pages to his office for ice cream in notes and e-mail.

This would back up a claim made earlier by former House page Matthew Loraditch, who told ABC News he and other pages were warned about Foley by a supervisor in the House Clerk's office in 2001.

Loraditch, the president of the Page Alumni Association, said the pages were told "don't get too wrapped up in him being too nice to you and all that kind of stuff."

I wonder how many pages have come forward and have told ABC News that they were molested by Democrats yet ABC News wont release that information because they need to protect the Democrats, I mean kids.

On a lighter note, Foley is more than likely going to get a book deal, just like another "Gay American", a corrupt governor from NJ. Do you think the title of Foleys book will be "The Pages In My Life"?

You mean the repug controlled Congress, back in 1995, who was covering up a repug Congressman hitting on underage pages while investing millions of dollars investigating a failed land deal and going after a president who messed around with an adult woman? THAT repug controlled Congress?

Shocked I say, shocked. SARCASM

And Newt Gingrich was in charge in 1995!

If this was an open secret among pages in 1995--the leadership had to know something. Newt let him get away with this too. He should be held accountable!

That was my first thought - that was Gingrich's watch.

And Gingrich has aspirations of stepping back into the arena as a presidential candidate?

The dam is breaking and IMO the phony ploy going on by Foley and the alcohol re-hab and stories about being molested by a priest are NOT going to protect him.

I have friend. He is Catholic and in his late 60s. When he was about 6 years old, he grandmother paid for him to attend parochial school. He was an alter boy and he was molested by one of the priests. He told on the priest and he was PUNISHED by his parents for making up lies and the people in charge of the school went after him, too. His stupid parents left him in that school and allowed him to be victimized several times after that by that son-of-a-bitch priest.

This man is an alcoholic and has been one for many years. He drinks on a daily basis and when he drinks, he is not at times a pleasant person. It is clear that he has stuffed down a ton of anger about what happened to him when he was a kid. When the scandals came out in the Catholic Church about how they knew of certain pedeophiles who were priests and actively particpated in covering up, my friend got involved in the suits against them and it was the BEST thing he has ever done for himself.

Btw: He has NEVER molested a child ~~ nor would he. He was so traumatized his entire life about what that sick asshole did to him when he was a child, that he would never cause that type of harm to another innocent child as was done to him as a child when a certain very sick priest violated him and his body.

So, IMO, Mark Foley is not only a sick piece of shit, but a coward looking for an easy way out. He is hiding and looking for sympathy where he deserves absolutely none. If he had a problem and wished to do something about it and this is an honest position by him, then why the hell did it take public exposure and humiliation for him to start cleaning up his act? He is totally bullshitting everyone.

I know several people who were molested as children

They never went out and tried to inflict the same pain on other children. Some people are abused and go on to abuse others. Some people remember the shame, pain and utter humiliation and swear on their graves never ever to do such sick things to others. What makes the different reactions? Perhaps it has something to do with an authoritarian personality.

Mindless speculation? Do you mean just like the Fox News typo or is that demonrat know how? Dont be surprised when it hits the demonrat fan and pages accuse them also. But then it will be a "vast right wing conspiracy" right? Have a nice day Bradgelina.

Some go on to become republicans, while some go on to become democrats. I suspect they break on about the same lines.

Was that the girl who said they were never "warned" about Foley?
Aside from the fact that she wouldn't NEED to be warned, I thought the girl looked like she was lying. Maybe she was just nervous but all that squinting and rolling her eyes upward set off my radar.

What a bunch of schmucks. You all are the same people who pray at the alter of the NY Times and have no regard for Fox News? I guess that is because Fox is a fair news organization and kicks ass in the ratings. You libs hate success dont you? I am sure you all just hate Colmes too, because he just might be a capitalist pig for taking a Fox paycheck.

It has nothing to do with thinking like a liberal. It has to do with forming coherent sentences, staying focused on topic, and engaging in conversation, instead of sounding like you're shouting at the moon. Or you can just continue to eat your sneakers and quack like a duck. Whatever.
