Foley blames alcohol Oct 06

Disgraced Republican congressman Mark Foley, who resigned last week over messages he sent to young congressional assistants (he was accused of turning pages), has blamed alcohol for his problems.

“It’s not my fault. Some may say that I had inappropriate relations with teenage men, but I was driven to what I did by Charles Kennedy’s drinking.”

    Nice one. Glad it’s OK for a Republican to be an alkie, but not to be gay. I’m notoriously unsympathetic to politicians’ scandals, though. They’ve made their beds, etc. Hope the blogmeet was good. The Oaten thing has to be read to be believed. Astonishing.
