"What is it with members of Congress that they think entering alcohol rehab is an appropriate response to whatever misdeeds they are accused of? Mark Foley is the latest"* abc:
"In addition to explicit sexual language, former Congressman Mark Foley's Internet messages also include repeated efforts to get the underage recipient to rendezvous with him at night.
"I would drive a few miles for a hot stud like you," Foley said in one message obtained by ABC News."
"Now, House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) has called on "the ethics committee, the Justice Department, the news media - or anyone who can [help]" to track down the source of those IM transcripts. Does this mean Hastert wants to go after the kids, for failing to report crimes against them?"* tpmm:
"Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) actively pressured a page for a sexual rendezvous, according to Instant Message conversations obtained by ABC News. Under the law that Foley helped enact, solicitation of a minor could lead to a lengthy prison sentence."
"This story really can't end unless and until Hastert resigns."* glenn:
"It really is hard to believe how tailor-made and perfect this scandal is. It guts every Republican advantage and inflames every one of their disadvantages."

"BRIAN ROSS: So far, Foley is the only member whose overt sexual approaches have been documented. Charlie?
CHARLES GIBSON: The only one to be documented, but are there other shoes to drop?
ROSS: We’re hearing quite a bit from former pages. They’re sending us all sorts of messages about possible other members."
