Washington is Hollywood for ugly people.

And child predators, apparently.

I heard that he... uh... had sex with a young man.
Butt sex.

They don't have any child predators in Hollywood?

(OK, to be fair, Ms. Lords was the victim not the predator and Neverland is not actually in LA)

A few more things I didn't know about Mark Foley:

*His favorite composer is Erich Wolfgang Korngold
*When he was 12 years old he won a spaniel puppy for fifty cents
*His favorite color is green
*Also, he's a trekkie

It's true!

Possibly related.

Foley has decided "all by himself" to stay hiding in rehab beyond his 30 day treatment program (or at least until the elections are over).

When you exchange money for an item, you didn't win the item, you bought the item,

Does such a basic misunderstanding explain what goes on in Congress?

It was a little cocker spaniel dog in a crate that he'd sent all the way from Texas. Black and white spotted. And our little girl -- Tricia, the 6-year old -- named it Checkers. And you know, the kids, like all kids, love the dog and I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we're gonna keep it.< ?i>

What I don't understand is why they didn't ask Foley to testify at the hearings. Wtf? He's in rehab, not dead...

Click, right at the tail end of my netflix queue too. Bet Foley's film career gets a boost.

In Washington when you've died politically it's actually worse than actually dropping dead. You do not get an oportunity to come back and explain what you did, particularly when you are a serious embarrassment for your party in a tight election year.

ABC's The Blotter reports that the movie has been "flying off shelves."

I didn't forget, I just thought his charges were dropped. Seems that only his misdemenor charges were dropped.
