Abuse in any form to children is pure evil. If the Republicans in Congress did try to cover up Foley's behavior, then they deserve the fate of the 1994 Democrats.
However, if Foley's behavior was a "well known secret," then why didn't the Democrats pounce on this story sooner? One has to question the timing of Clinton's temper tantrum on Fox, Bob Woodward's book and this late breaking Republican scandal.
Believe it or not, I vote the person, not the party. I hope our Representative, E.Clay Shaw, does win re election for the state of Florida. Thus far, Representative Shaw serves the public good and his opponent may have a few skeletons in his closet. These skeletons seem to talk a bit at some of these entertainment establishments in Boca Raton and are a "well known secret."
