In a bizarre bit of political news, former Rep. Mark Foley, the disgraced Republican from Florida who incited furor across the nation when he admitted to sending sexually-charged emails to underage male Congressional pages, has been given his very own radio show to talk about issues facing conservative America.

In a bizarre bit of political news, former Rep. Mark Foley, the disgraced Republican from Florida who incited furor across the nation when he admitted to sending sexually-charged emails to underage male Congressional pages, has been given his very own radio show to talk about issues facing conservative America.

WSVU 960am, a Palm Beach area radio station, has green-lit a show featuring Fley to debut on September 22.  The title: Inside the Mind of Mark Foley.

The station is a hodgepodge of sorts, mixing some talk radio (Foley will join nationally syndicated shows like the Don Imus Show), sports (NFL broadcasts for the Dallas Cowboys and MLB broadcasts for the Boston Red Sox), and adult-contemporary music.

Foley was cleared of any criminal charges following the revelation of lewd, provocative emails to young boys back in 2006.  However, the scandal and his subsequent resignation was one of the single most significant events in the turning of the national mood against Congressional Republicans in the run-up to the 2006 election that saw Democrats take control of both chambers of Congress.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
