Mark Foley had cybersex with teen while waiting for House vote

ABC has uncovered more instant message exchanges between disgraced Republican congressman Mark Foley and underage boys. These records show Foley having cybersex with an underage boy while waiting to vote on the Emergency War Time supplemental appropriations bill. In another conversation Foley invites a boy over to his house to drink alcohol.

Maf54: we will be adjourned ny then
Teen: oh good
Maf54: by
Maf54: then we can have a few drinks
Maf54: lol
Teen: yes yes ;-)
Maf54: your not old enough to drink
Teen: shhh…
Maf54: ok
Teen: that's not what my ID says
Teen: lol
Maf54: ok
Teen: I probably shouldn't be telling you that huh
Maf54: we may need to drink at my house so we don't get busted

Update: Mark Foley has checked himself into a rehab clinic, claiming that alcoholism drove him to chat up teens online. The TPMmuckraker questions Foley's claim that he was a secret alcoholic. For example, if he was having cybersex online before the House vote, he presumably wasn't drunk at the time.

Nice to see our representatives taking war so seriously. Lol.

Is everyone in North America incapable of distinguishing between your and you're? I would hope that even closeted pedophile Congressmen would have the decency to ue proper grammar and syntax and yet, I'd once again be disappointed.

Fuckwit.

The LA Times has dug up some former pages who said they were warned in 1995 about Foley, and that pages passed this on from class to class over the years.

Foley took office in 1995. He got to work pretty quick.

Cybersex?

I admit I've never had cybersex with anyone (or done cybersex with anyone, or cybersexed anyone...whatever) but I was always under the impression it would be a bit more, uhm...sexual...than anything I've seen so far from the former congressman.

You know, "I want my THIS in your THAT" or "I want to VERB your NOUN until you VERB."

Not that I'm making excuses or complaining about the lack of explicit sex (that's a good thing, because one of the participants would be underage) but so far there's not a lot of sex in this sex scandal.

This is more like cyberflirting. It's a flirt scandal.

Confusing your and you're is setting a rather bad example for the kids. He should be ashamed of himself.

You stole my comment. I am getting so sick of people time travelling to the future and using telepathy to read my thoughts JUST so they can beat me to writing a smartass comment. It seems like such a waste of both technology and superhuman ability. If I had ESP and a De Lorean I could think of so many more important things to do with them than that. I'd try to talk Jesus out of the Apocalypse, at least until Lindsay converts. (Who cares about ya, girl? Certainly not PZ Myers.)

Sorry. Your/you’re, regardless/irregardless, could/couldn’t care less, effect/affect, apostrophe errors, and on and on - all grating. But it’s the nuclear/nucular thing that sends me climbing walls. If George Bush can ever pronounce it as it is spelled, just once, I promise I’ll vote straight Republican for the rest of my life.
