    Foley Resigns From Congress Over E-Mails

    Foley Resigns From Congress Over E-Mails
    By LARRY MARGASAK, Associated Press Writer

    In a scandal guaranteed to anger parents, a prominent House Republican has resigned after the revelation that he exchanged raunchy electronic messages with a teenage boy, a former congressional page.

    Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla., who is single, apologized Friday for letting down his family and constituents. Once his resignation letter was read to the House late Friday afternoon, Republicans spent the night trying to explain six weeks before congressional elections how this could have happened on their watch.

    Near midnight, they engineered a vote to let the House ethics committee decide whether an investigation is needed.

    Read the rest of the story.

    Looking back.....

    Republicans were aghast at Clinton's behavior, with many saying it showed he had lied and abused his power.

    "It's vile," said Rep. Mark Foley, R-West Palm Beach. "It's more sad than anything else, to see someone with such potential throw it all down the drain because of a sexual addiction."

    Some of the strongest reaction Friday was in response to Starr's account of Lewinsky performing oral sex on Clinton as he chatted with members of Congress on the telephone.

    That was "just sad," Foley said. "It's unbelievable that he could behave so carelessly in that setting."

    Is this another nail in the Republican coffin?

    In my experience, the louder someone complains about a bad habit, sin, et al, the more likely they are to be engaged in it.
