As usual in government it’s do as I say not as I do. Seems like Congressman Foley likes to have sex with little boys. While at the same time he has been passing draconian laws to jail other citizens who enjoy sex with little boys
Laws pushed by Foley could be used in case
WASHINGTON - Former Rep. Mark Foley, who resigned from Congress last week amid reports that he sent sexually explicit Internet messages to teenage congressional pages, could be prosecuted under laws he promoted.
The Florida Republican, who was co-chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children, spent much of his career on Capitol Hill promoting federal laws that would punish sexual predators who use the Internet to locate potential victims.
One of the laws that may apply began as a 1998 bill sponsored by Foley and 36 House colleagues that prohibits sending obscene photos or messages to minors over the Internet. Foley also could be prosecuted under other federal laws he sought to toughen. Those laws aim to combat computer-aided luring of children by sexual predators.
Mary Leary, a criminal law professor at Catholic University, said the laws that might be used to prosecute Foley were born of the realization that the Internet ushered in a new way to prey on children.
There also are anti-luring laws in 40 states that could be used to prosecute Foley Those states include Louisiana, home to a former page who received e-mails from Foley, and Foley's home state of Florida.
