    Then Foley must have been drunk on the House floor.  We know of at least one instance where he left the House floor during a vote to IM a teen and talk about orgasms, then he told the teen he had to go back to the floor to vote.  So didn't anyone in the House notice he was drunk while he was on the House floor??

        I don't think showing up drunk would have been any problem...
