Mark Foley May Resign Resigns

But not over the scandal; so that he can spend more time with his children.

Well, other people's children, but close enough.

Florida Republicans are scrambling for a write-in candidate who is either a) a straight family man with no possibility of scandal or b) a closeted gay candidate who's actually figured out there are an awful lot of pictures of boys on the Internet.


Via The Corner.

Update: Via GayPatriotWest, he's Foley's resigned.

The gay issue is a dicey one. On one hand, it's considered invasive to inquire into someone's sexuality.

On the other hand, the CIA does so, for a good reason-- a closeted gay, or anyone with secret sexual behaviors (infidelity, etc.) is a definite security risk. In politics, it's a major political risk to boot.

Of course, Barney Frank isn't without his boyfriend-related political problems, either.

But this bastard seems to have been hitting on a teenager.

I don't think there's the legal predicate for it, but I wonder what a bigger investigation into what else he might have been up to would show. Although I joked about it (inappropriately), I suspect this guy has a lot of underage porn on his computer.

Creep. Why do people with penchants for criminal behavior like this go into politics at all? Are they looking to get caught?
