If you hate something . . .

. . . don't you do it too?

Saying he was "deeply sorry," Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) resigned from Congress, hours after ABC News questioned him about sexually explicit internet messages with current and former congressional pages under the age of 18.

Foley was on a commision which worked on issues directly regarding sexual exploitation of minors. He was just doing a little research I guess.

Last June, Larry Craig, the Senator from Idaho, was arrested for “lewd conduct” in a men’s room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. He pleaded guilty on August 8, paid $500, got out of the 10-day jail sentence, and was given a year of probation. The lewd conduct he was accused of consisted of a series of hand and foot jestures made under the partition of a bathroom stall in an airport. To call this type of encounter "gay" is insulting to homosexuals. Normal men and women, gay or straight, don't meet partners through a game of toilet seat footsie.

Craig, when addressing the issue at a press conference repeatedly denied being gay.Like most fellow Republicans, Craig has opposed gay rights, voting in favor of a federal ban on same-sex marriage several times in recent years

Asked this morning at the White House whether the senator, Larry Craig, should resign, President George W. Bush said nothing and walked off stage.
