They Come for Your Wallet, They Stay to Grab Your Ass (if You're Under 18)

Listening to Warren Olney on KCRW's To the Point on the way back from lunch and he's interviewing Chuck Todd, editor-in-chief of The Hotline (National Journal's daily briefing on politics--I didn't know either), and they're discussing the political fallout from the Mark Foley (R-NAMBLA) situation. Todd thinks the Republicans might have ignored the first "curious" emails they first saw about a year ago as that's when the Congressional power structure was a mess thanks to the Tom DeLay scandal.

I offer to you the current Republicans, too caught up in financial cheating to have the time to notice sexual misdeeds.

The political fallout from the Mark Foley situation is getting bigger. There is alot of discussion about when the Republicans first knew. Did they just ignore Foley's emails or think that it was not a problem. You said it, a Congressional power structure was developing due to another scandal.

No, it was par for the course. They chose to ignore the sexual predator so they could keep his seat in congress. Now, they're almost guaranteed to lose it.
