Foley and a dangling job offer

* foley makes WaPo A1. again:
"The messages were innocent at first. But after the young man moved home, he recalled, Foley started asking about "my roommates, if I ever saw them naked." Within months, the congressman was dangling a job offer, "because I was a hot boy," he said. Two years later, when he contacted Foley for advice on D.C. hotels, the congressman wrote back: "You could always stay at my place. I'm always here, I'm always lonely, and I'm always up for oral sex."
....Then, shortly before they left or soon afterward, he singled out certain boys to write to -- including four newly confirmed by The Washington Post... Some of the correspondence was brief and casual. But over months or years, if a boy seemed willing to go along, some conversations grew more sexual."

* CNNI *led* with an evoting story! NYT frontpaged the story the other day. ChigTrib too. Brad has the details, of course.

* if you didn't catch it over the weekend - make sure you read the Ellsberg interview where he says that Hastert received suitcases of Turkish heroin cash delivered to his home.

There was more than a job offer dangling.

What . . . a participle?? ;-)

Yes, Lee, there was a participle. There were grammar problems, and possibly trouble with semantics or perhaps nomenclature. Then, Mark got his dick out.

hahaha, Uranus, you beat me to it, i'd already copied Within months, the congressman was dangling

jeez. and i thought i'd seen it all before 2000--just amazing. my poor innocence gland is FUCKED despite the huge amounts of drugs and booze.

i need something stronger like an impeachment or heroin (so i wouldn't give a shit). once again in the words of Hunter S Thompson, 'fuck these people.'

perhaps it was GWB's comma that was dangling.

I'm glad Dubya's still in the closet, because when he comes out, it'll be a scourge and an insult to good, decent gay people everywhere.
