Here’s Representative Vito Fossella of Staten Island at a photo op with everyone’s favorite disgraced Congressman, Mark Foley, who’s in trouble for coming on to underage male Congressional pages.
The bigger story, of course, is that the Republican leadership knew for months and months about Foley’s bad behavior and covered it up. Apparently heterosexual blowjobs between consenting adults are impeachable, but attempted homosexual pedophilia is something the public doesn’t need to know about.
And did Vito know about Foley’s shenanigans? Does it even matter? These are his friends, this is the moral environment in which they operate. This is why I’m working for Steve Harrison’s campaign for Congress: because the current Congress is repugnant.
