Mark Foley (R – creepy, child solicitor) resigned today from Congress. Florida is required to keep him on the ballot this November. Which leads to a fine ad opportunity for the next month:

The Republicans:

  • Put an Arabian Horse Judge in charge of disaster management.

  • Put oil company lobbyists in charge of our energy policy.
  • Put Dubai in charge of our port security.
  • And they put a child predator in charge of the Caucus for Missing and Exploited Children.

Who will you put in charge in November?

Update: AmericaBlog has posted some of the IM’™s between Foley and some kid’¦ creepy is being far too kind, and Hastert KNEW about this over a year ago and let him keep his position as head of the Committee for Missing and Exploited Children.

Richard’™s Update: Associated Press has now picked up the angle that the GOP congressional leadership knew of Foley’™s actions nearly a year ago. Josh Marshall and Hunter at DKos provide analysis on the possible fallout. Both believe that this seamy story could grow much larger and have significant impact on the mid-terms. (Or could it possibly be that the breaking of this story was purposefully timed as a manufactured distraction from more important events of the day? Ah, the news junkies always love a good DC sex scandal’¦)

Richard’™s Update 2: GOP House Majority Leader Boehner hangs Denny Hastert out to dry. Wow. This is gonna be huge.

Richard’™s Update 3: Now, this is rich – from Hastert’™s website, dated August 29, 2006 – months after he learned about Foley:

ï–¿–½Recent news stories remind us that there are predators using the Internet to target children,ï–¿–½ Hastert said. ï–¿–½And just as we warn our children about ï–¿–½stranger dangerï–¿–½ when they are at the park or answering the door or telephone, we need to be aware of potential dangers in Cyberspace.ï–¿–½
