    AP Special Correspondent


    Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla., submitted a letter of resignation from Congress on Friday in the wake of questions about e-mails he wrote a former male page, according to a congressional official.

    Foley, 52, had been considered a shoo-in for re-election until the e- mails surfaced in recent days.

    Campaign aides had previously acknowledged that the Republican congressman e-mailed the former Capitol page five times, but had said there was nothing inappropriate about the exchange. The page was 16 at the time of the e-mail correspondence.

    Foley's election opponent, Democrat Tim Mahoney, has called for an investigation.

    Brian Ross and Maddy Sauer Report:

    Mark_foley_nr_1Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) planned to resign today, hours after ABC questioned him about sexually explicit internet messages with current and former Congressional pages under the age of 18.

    A spokesman for Foley, the chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children, said the congressman submitted his resignation in a letter late this afternoon to Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert.

    Hours earlier, ABC News had read excerpts of instant messages provided by former pages who said the congressman, under the AOL Instant Messenger screen name Maf54, made repeated references to sexual organs and acts.

    The full details will be included in a report tonight on ABC World News with Charles Gibson.
  3. I dunno. It doesn't give any incriminating details. But then again, why would he possibly resign if there wasn't something there that really smelled awful?
  4. Foley was running for re-election to a seventh term. He has represented his district, which includes West Palm Beach, since 1995. Florida Republicans could replace Foley on the ballot.

    In his exchanges with the boy, Foley asked how old he was, what he wanted for his upcoming birthday, how he was doing after Hurricane Katrina and for a photo.

    I'm glad that muZZZlim finally see's the light!! :)

    Homosexuals have no business in Congress let alone in the GOP.

    Mark Foley was a great Congressman who will be missed. But let's leave the homo behavior to Democrats like Rep. Barney Frank, Rep. Tammy Baldwin and former NJ Governor Jim McGreevey. :p
  6. This would not be an issue for a single democrat with a partner of similar age, and not a duplicitous person like Foley.

    Much of Florida is of course, homophobic, which is probably why you fit in so well down there....


    As a founder and co-chair of the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus, Mark has been instrumental in the development and passage of legislation designed to protect our children.

    He authored legislation that became law -- the Volunteers for Children Act -- that gives volunteer organizations that work with children, such as scouting and sports groups, access to FBI fingerprint-based background checks to ensure that they are not inadvertently hiring child molesters.

    He has also cosponsored legislation toughening the penalties levied at those who hurt children and, most recently, has joined forces with the Administration and Congress to fight child predators. His Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, which has passed both the House and Senate, will overhaul the way we track and monitor predatory pedophiles. He has also introduced and cosponsored legislation designed to eliminate child pornography and exploitive child modeling web sites.

    Over the years, Mark also has worked closely with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and John Walsh (host of Fox TV’s America’s Most Wanted) on a variety of child protection programs. Among the latest of these is a program designed to show children how to protect themselves from online predators.

    On the education front, Mark strongly believes that our children are the key to the nation’s future. Since he was elected into Congress in 1994, he has been working with both Republicans and Democrats to help reduce children illiteracy and improve educators’ job benefits. He has consistently supported measures that will give all of our young people the opportunity to become educated, successful members of society.

    This past year, he voted to increase funding for No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), Head Start and Pell Grant programs. He also supports funding for pre-college opportunity programs like TRIO and GEAR UP and is an advocate for students’ right to have access to a safe and productive learning environment with federally funded programs like Safe and Drug-Free Schools.

    Mark is a strong proponent of NCLB’s program called Reading is Fundamental (RIF). This productive program helps educate parents to create a literacy-rich home environment for their children through motivation activities in communities. RIF’s motto to children is that reading is both fun and fundamental. Mark’s district has benefited from RIF’s activities and materials, helping increase FCAT scores and improving schools’ Annual Yearly Progress marks (AYP).

    As technology rapidly advances, Mark feels that students should have the ability to integrate the use of computer software into their daily learning regimen. As a strong supporter of NCLB’s Enhancing Education Through Technology program, Florida’s rural and urban schools alike have received technical assistance through the recruitment of highly qualified teachers and state coordinators.

    Mark also is a firm believer in finding and supporting innovative ways to encourage our children’s educational horizons, including participating in the annual Congressional Art Competition, a program that reaches out to high school students in Florida and the nation to showcase their creative talents.

  7. Your party is full of republipervs...

  8. So far I don't see anything incriminating with regard to Foley. On the other hand if he was propositioning a minor, that's plainly wrong.

    As for any other gay persons in leadership... can that actually be considered a qualification as to their ability to lead?

    Let it be known, before some subjective thinking responder labels me as a left wing moonbat, I am totally against gay marriage (between a man and a women). Civil unions to your hearts desire.

    Btw, for future reference, I am also pro-life (Irresponsible to allow indiscriminate abortion).

    But I also adamantly believe in "to each their own".

    "Still, Baldwin says she hopes there will be young women, some of them just out of college and sitting on the floor of their first apartments, who will be inspired both by what she has to say and by her presence in prime time. "

  10. What's that got to do with anything?
