E-mail exchange questioned
Earlier Friday, a former congressional page questioned e-mails Foley had sent to him, describing it as “sick.” Foley, a Florida representative, apparently sent the e-mails in August 2005, when the male page was 16 years old.
In the e-mails, which were obtained by the Washington-based Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, Foley discussed a second page, saying “I just emailed [him]… hes such a nice guy… acts much older than his age… hes in great shape… i am just finished riding my bike on a 25 mile journey now heading to the gym… whats school like for you this year?”
Foley then asked the page for a picture.
The young man, who forwarded the e-mails to another congressional staffer, called the e-mails “sick, sick, sick.”
“Maybe it is just me being paranoid, but seriously. This freaks me out,” the page wrote in the e-mails obtained by CREW.
A spokesman for Foley told CNN the congressman acknowledged he had an e-mail exchange with the former page but flatly denied that it was anything inappropriate.

By Nicholas Johnston and Brian FalerSept. 29 (Bloomberg) — Representative Mark Foley, a Florida Republican, submitted a letter of resignation to House Speaker Dennis Hastert today after ABC News queried him about sexually explicit messages with underage congressional pages.
“I am deeply sorry and I apologize for letting down my family and the people of Florida I have had the privilege to represent,” Foley said in a statement.
ABC News today said the network had read excerpts of instant messages provided by former pages who said Foley made references to sexual organs and acts.
That fucker was the CHAIRMAN for the House caucus on missing and exploited children!!! I wonder how many he had taken himself??
His website just has a statement, but google was kind enough to cache the old page before the change.
Well that’s one (republican piece of shit) down.
Apparently the revolution will be televised.
