    that any suggestion that he ever had any sexual contact with a minor is patently false.

    Ok .... 16 years old .... a statutory minor.

    Instant message asking for penis measurements, cyber ejaculation, and offers to buy minors drinks in a real face to face molesting encounter ..... sexual contact.

    What the hell is confusing about that?

    •  Naw, I bet the lawyer drew the line tight (0+ / 0-)

      in DC, for actual sex, it's 16.  Maryland too.  In English, the lawyer's statement can read:

      "Congressman Foley had tons of sex with the 11th-grade, 16 year-old and perfectly legal stable of House Pages.  He never veered off to nail a 15 year-old 10th grader, since such don't become Pages."

    •  That's the legal aspect. (0+ / 0-)

      But it's not a legal scandal. As Greenwald points out, it's a political one.

      •  That "He's Not A Minor" (0+ / 0-)

        Thing isn't going to play well nationally, not to mention their base.
