ABC: Evidence That Foley Solicited Sex With Page

Excerpt ABC Report "FBI Contacting Pages; Evidence Foley Solicited Sex":
At least one former page has reportedly offered evidence that Foley sought to solicit sex during instant message exchanges over the Internet.

The "preliminary investigation" appears to be heading towards a full field investigation, according to one official.

But the ABC report also notes:
Officials say Foley's extensive knowledge of child exploitation laws may have helped guide him as to how far he could go without violating the law.

and then finishes this part with:

Instant messages obtained by ABC News indicated Foley met or arranged to meet young men under the age of 18 who had been pages.

Either I'm putting 1 and 1 and 1 together and getting 13 or it seems like Foley did go over the edge of the law.

Another thing that should be a crime is found in the same article:
Despite the fact that Foley's attorney has said Foley admits to sending the "totally inappropriate" e-mails and IMs, the FBI has still not seized his computer and hard drive.


And in the Washington Post a former page notes in article titled "Some Say They Felt Uneasy About Representative's Attention":
...many people on Capitol Hill," including many Republican staffers, "have known for over 11 years about what was going on and chose to do nothing," he said.


This is completely unbelievable.

This is the party that claims to be protecting the American family.

What a bunch of hypocrites. They send our jobs overseas and insource labor so we have a harder time supporting our families, and while we are working they are working to let sexual predators legally get to our teens.

I don't know if Cagle ever changes a subject "collection". I do notice that today's cartoon by Stahler -- I have linked above -- wasn't added yet. Hopefully, this link will remain stable. (BTW don't give me guff about "liberal cartoonist" Stantis, according to Editor and Publisher and the strip itself does "Prickly City".
