Follow up questions on the Foley/Page deal

Mark Foley is an idiot creep who should have resigned, and deserves to be shunned.
That said, there are some interesting angles here.

1. In DC 16 is the age of Consent. Is it legal to hit on a 16 year old or not? If you are over 25 it is certainly not moral.

2. Seems that the page, Jordan Edmund, is now 21, and was 18 when this really happened. If that is the case, isn't this scandal in the same relm as the Clinton -Lewinski scandal i.e., an inappropriate relationship between an employer an employee. (see here - includes pix!)

3. Most media reports make little distinction between the e-mails, and the IM's. (Click the link!) The only strange part of the e-mails was a a request for a photo, but the IM's go into themes like levels of arousal, and methods of masturbation. Considering that the IM's were not distributed until Friday were the e-mails alone, enough to hang the Congressman?

4. IM records vanish into the ethers after the discussion, so who saved the transcript, and who held those records for more than a year???

5. This story broke just days after the deadline to file for a replacement candidate passed. Co-Inky-Dink?


In other similar news:

And who are the other gay Republicans under wraps?

And why are the Dems "outing" gay people? Do they think there is something wrong with being gay? Why not lay out all the cards on this?

Lets get into asking and telling!

Which reps/Senators are gay or bi?
I want all 635!

You want all 635 Reps and Senators to be gay or bi? Well, OK, but then don't count on passage of the 'marriage ammendent.' At least not the version being pushed by the religious right. ;)

No, No, no. I only want them to all go on record for their preferences. I don't really care what those preferences are.
