    expands upon what Foley was after.  If it surfaces that he was meeting with the pages.........

    Of course, ironically, Glenn Greenwald says that if Foley actually HAD sex with a sixteen-year-old plage, that it would be legal.....in D.C. (consent age is 16).

    But since it was over the internet, the Asam Walsh Law kicks in and the age ups to 18.

      •  But the Adam Walsh Act wasn't signed into (0+ / 0-)

        law until July 26, 2006. The acts were apparently all committed way before then. The following day was the $100,000 donation to the RCCC. Sounds like Foley has been dangling by a thread for a while, and Karl saved him until he could serve as an October surprise to divert attention from other damning news. There are plenty of ways for the Republicans to fill any vacated House seats with hand-picked replacements that circumvent the will of the voters, from various threads I've read. So they aren't worried about losing these seats. They'll have schemes to amke them up elsewhere with their microtargeting 'Voter Vault.'
