10/02/2006: Hopefully, no one will be buying into this line of horsecrap. The disgraced Mark Foley (R-NAMBLA), is trying to play the “I’m an alcoholic” defense.
Another sex offender–Paula Poundstone–pulled the same stunt in a 2001 plea deal. So did drunk driver Patrick Kennedy (D-RI).
He should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, as well as any GOP leaders who helped cover his butt.
