Congressman who Pushed for Pedophile Laws Nailed for Online Sex Talk with Teenage Boy

Congressman Mark Foley Florida Congressman Mark Foley was a prominent supporter, even an avid advocate, of heavier penalties against pedophiles. He once commented that laws against child molesters should be so tough that pedophiles, when caught, would discover that their life was over. “We track library books better than we do sexual predators”, Foley had said. Now Foley has been discovered to be a pedophile himself after a 2005 incident with a 16 year old boy, was uncovered months later. In 2006, when the news broke, prominent newspapers described the email and IM exchanges as “raunchy” – they go far beyond raunchy and include requests from Foley to the teenager asking for a photograph, requests for “measurements” of penile size, descriptions of Foley’s and the teenager’s masturbation routine, an IM online sex session with the teenage boy, and more. The incident was all the more peculiar considering that Foley, as the chairman of the Missing and Exploited Children’s Caucus, introduced legislation in July of 2005, to protect children from exploitation by adults over the Internet.

The boy was a former congressional page, a high-school student who acts as an assistant and messenger to United States Congressmen. There are strict rules and guidelines regarding the use of pages in the U.S. government and many are calling out for an investigation into this incident in an effort to insure these young boys and girls cannot be taken advantage of by U.S. politicians.

The incident was further compounded when it was learned that others in the government knew about the Foley incident and did not take action immediately. Representative Rodney Alexander, a Republican from Louisiana, was the official sponsor for the page and knew personally about the incident himself. He claims that he did not come forward, regardless of the legal implications, because the boy’s parents requested that the matter be dropped. Alexander indicated that he had passed on what he knew to the chairman of the House Republican campaign organization, Representative Thomas Reynolds, a Republican from New York. Reynolds also chose to cover up the matter. In addition, chairman of the Page Board, Representative John Shimkus, a Republican from Illinois, said that he thought about starting an investigation but did not pursue it after Foley assured him that nothing serious was going on. Democrats of course, jumped on the story and demanded full disclosure and investigations to Foley’s relationships with other past pages – close to election time, without true concern for the boy victim; they used this incident as a springboard for the upcoming 2006 elections.

ABC News reported that Foley had also engaged in a series of sexually explicit IMs (instant messages) with current and other former pages – all male. In one exchange, Foley asked the boy “Do I make you a little horny?”. In another exchange with a young boy, Foley candidly asked, “You in your boxers too? Well, strip down and get relaxed.”

As the news broke, Foley, the age old politician, took the typical “sympathy” steps that Hollywood actors take when they’ve been caught with their fingers in the cookie jar. Foley began issuing public excuses claiming he had just entered a drug and mental rehab and then later claiming that he himself was molested as a boy (age 13 to 15) by a clergyman.

In defense of the Republicans, it doesn’t go without notice that the timing of the release of information regarding the incident occurred at an opportune time for the Democrat party – just 1 month before the November 2006 elections. The Foley incident took place in 2005 and that the Republicans knew about the email exchanges is not argued. What is arguable is who and how many Republicans knew about the IM messages and how that information was leaked to the press.

The news began to break when the boy emailed his sponsor, Alexander, about Foley’s email saying “This freaked me out.”. When Foley requested a photo the boy called it “sick, sick, sick”. The boy explained that Foley had obtained his email address when the boy had given him a thank-you card. The boy also noted that Foley had commented about email he had sent to another page. Foley told the boy that “He’s such a nice guy. Acts much older than his age and he’s in really great shape.”.

In one exchange, Foley had written “I am back in Florida now… It’s nice here…. Been raining today… it sounds like you will have some fun over the next few weeks… How old are you now? Send me an email pic of you as well.”

Copies of the email exchange were sent to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) who promptly submitted them to the FBI who immediately began a preliminary investigation. “As a former prosecutor who handled sex crimes in the District of Columbia, the emails set off alarm bells. Grown men simply do not send emails requesting photographs to teenagers over whom they have had some degree of authority,” Melanie Sloan, executive director of CREW wrote today.
