Sick, Sick, Sick

By DAVID ESPO and JIM KUHNHENN, AP:

Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla., resigned from Congress on Friday, effective immediately, in the wake of questions about e-mails he wrote a former male page.

"I am deeply sorry and I apologize for letting down my family and the people of Florida I have had the privilege to represent," he said in a statement issued by his office.

The two-sentence statement did not refer to the e-mails and gave no reason for Foley's decision to abruptly abandon a flourishing career in Congress.

Campaign aides had previously acknowledged that the Republican congressman e-mailed the former Capitol page five times, but had said there was nothing inappropriate about the exchange. The page was 16 at the time of the e-mail correspondence.

How many resignations is this now?

If you think that's sick, I found some seriously weird stuff buried in a local candidate's website:

To see the really bizarre, go to Sherrie News and read the ones under sexual harasment. It doesn't look like some of this stuff could have been legally released.

I don't know who this Nick guy is but he definintely has some office behavior issues.

Get out there while you can. Once they realize what they've posted, it will probably come down.

Just another example of Republican values.
