Democrats Versus Mark Foley = Hypocrites 'R' Us!

I am amazed at the outcry from Democrats demanding the resignation of Speaker Dennis Hastert now that this Foley scandal has been revealed! I am half expecting violent mobs of Democrats to hit the streets, rending their clothes while burning down buildings and shouting "Clinton Akbar!" Ridiculous! That Foley immediately resigned is correct. That he has "problems" is obvious. That this should be an issue by which the Democrats seize control of congress reminds one of another era.

Question: Do the Democrats have their own set of "plumbers", dirty-tricksters trying to muck up the 2006 election like the Nixon campaign had in 1972?

Question: Since the Democrats were in uproar that anyone would care about President Clinton having sex with an intern, is this hypocritical of them?

Question: Since Democratic Congressman Gerry Studds actually had sex with an underage male intern (see near the bottom of the post) but continued to serve in Congress with the blessings of the Democratic Party for six terms after being censured (but certainly not forced to resign) how dare they demand further repercussions from this incident? Is it okay for Democrats to have sex with underage interns while Republicans cannot even send nasty text messages? I am not the only one who cannot fathom the "logic" here.

Question: Since these IM messages were sent three years ago, who held onto them and waited to release them right before a key election? Perhaps a faked blog with faked comments is a clue?

Question: Where are all these interns being mentioned by the Dems and the press? Is this post below a clue to the "16-year-old" male intern? Is he actually that young? See below...

Meet Jordan Edmund One Mark Foley Instant Messenger

Jordan Edmund 21 years old

Jordan Edmund is 21 years old

Mark Foley is a scumbag! Mark Foley is a scumbag! Mark Foley is a scumbag!

Now that that is out of the way I will reveal how I (and a few others) discovered Jordan Edmund was one of the former house pages that participated in sexually explicit instant messages with Rep. Mark Foley. Also I will explain to you why I believe it necessary to reveal Jordan Edmund's identity. You may not agree with my decision, but I hope to explain my reasoning by the end of this story.

On the evening of September 30th I did what many people did and I read the instant messages released by Brian Ross at ABC NEWS. Here is the link to the pdf of the instant messages. When I had finished reading the messages I felt disgust toward what Foley did. Below is a picture of the last 3 lines of that instant message.

I was so upset about what Foley said to an 17 year old boy that I started searching the ABC NEWS website to find out if there were more instant messages. This is what I found.

Same instant message with one big difference. The teen's AOL screen name is clearly visible. I could only come up with 2 conclusions; either someone at ABC NEWS screwed up big time or they meant for someone to find the unedited instant message.

Top Ten (Recent) Democratic Sex Scandals in Congress

10. Sen. Daniel Inouye. The 82-year-old Hawaii Democrat was accused in the 1990s by numerous women of sexual harassment. Democrats cast doubt on the allegations and the Senate Ethics Committee dropped its investigation.

9. Former Rep. Gus Savage. The Illinois Democrat was accused of fondling a Peace Corps volunteer in 1989 while on a trip to Africa. The House Ethics Committee decided against disciplinary action in 1990.

8. Rep. Barney Frank. The outspoken Massachusetts Democrat hired a male prostitute who ran a prostitution service from Frank’s residence in the 1980s. Only two Democrats in the House of Representatives voted to censure him in 1990.

7. Former Sen. Brock Adams. The late Washington Democrat was forced to stop campaigning after numerous accusations of drugging, assault and rape, the first surfacing in 1988.

6. Former Rep. Fred Richmond. This New York Democrat was arrested in 1978 for soliciting sex from a 16-year-old. He remained in Congress and won re-election—before eventually resigning in 1982 after pleading guilty to tax evasion and drug possession.

5. Former Rep. John Young. The late Texas Democrat increased the salary of a staffer after she gave in to his sexual advances. The congressman won re-election in 1976 but lost two years later.

4. Former Rep. Wayne Hays. The late Ohio Democrat hired an unqualified secretary reportedly for sexual acts. Although he resigned from Congress, the Democratic House leadership stalled in removing him from the Administration Committee in 1976.

3. Former Rep. Gerry Studds. He was censured for sexual relationship with underage male page in 1983. Massachusetts voters returned him to office for six more terms.

2. Former Rep. Mel Reynolds. The Illinois Democrat was convicted of 12 counts of sexual assault with a 16-year-old. President Bill Clinton pardoned him before leaving office.

1. Sen. Teddy Kennedy. The liberal Massachusetts senator testified in defense of nephew accused of rape, invoking his family history to win over the jury in 1991.

Does anyone remember that Studds turned his back on Congress as he was being censured?

Finally, as nasty as this all is, the age of consent in the District of Columbia is age 16, so even had Foley had sex with an underage intern it might not be illegal conduct. Reprehensible? Obviously. Illegal? Probably not.

As usual, this is all playing out because the Democrats have no real issues.

"Perverts And Pages

I’ve been waiting for our gal Ann Coulter to weight in on the Foley Affair and I’m happy to say she finally lets fly. The target is Democrats and the double standard we are all used to seeing by now. Mark Foley is a certified creep but at least he had the dignity to fall on his sword and resign from Congress - something Democrats Gerry Studds, Barney Frank and Mel Reynolds refused to do when they were exposed for doing much worse. Follow the links if you have a short memory or just don’t believe it.

My personal opinion is that Congress and government in general just need to do away with the whole concept of Pages and Interns. The jobs are an anachronism and have become nothing more than a bordello for perverted Congressmen and creepy Presidents from Arkansas. For the time being though, read what Ann has to say about the whole mess ... "
