P-2 Politicians, sex and corruption

'06 Oct 02 Sexual abuse in Congress? Not on leaders' agenda...

'06 Oct 06 Foley scandal investigations heating up >> President Bush called Hastert late Thursday to reassure him amid allegations that the House speaker did not do enough to protect the teenage House pages from former Rep. Mark Foley (news, bio, voting record)'s advances.
Congress is consistent at corruption
WASHINGTON - Foley's folly - the sexually suggestive messages that Rep. Mark Foley (news, bio, voting record) (R) sent to one or more former congressional pages - is only the latest manifestation of Lord Acton's axiom that power tends to corrupt....In the case of our Congress, the corruption is of two general sorts - money and sex.

Update '06 Oct 07 House's Foley investigation is wide open WASHINGTON - The House's investigation of a page sex scandal has only one certainty: Former Rep. Mark Foley (news, bio, voting record) will escape punishment by his peers.....It is the Florida Republican's sexually explicit electronic messages to teenage former male pages that have ignited what has become a pre-election firestorm......Congress only can punish current members, officers and employees. Foley resigned on Sept. 29, but is under investigation by federal and Florida authorities.

Update:'06 Oct 08 What's Wrong With Washington: Exhibit A
