Disgraced former Rep. Mark Foley said through his lawyer Tuesday that he was sexually abused by a clergyman as a teenager, but accepts full responsibility for sending salacious computer messages to teenage male pages.

Attorney David Roth said Foley was molested between ages 13 and 15. He declined to identify the clergyman or the church, but Foley is Roman Catholic.

He also acknowledged for the first time that the former congressman is gay, saying the disclosure was part of his client’s “recovery.”

Mark Foley wants you to know he is a gay man,” Roth told reporters as Republicans struggled with fallout from Foley’s resignation.

I guess running to rehab to hide wasn’t enough. Time to pull out all the stops with the old “a priest pulled my winkie” trick, and the “oh yeah, and I’m gay.” Are we supposed to feel sorry for him now? Being molested and gay doesn’t make you a pedophile. Being a pedophile makes you a pedophile.

  1. >I saw this crap of a statement last night and I was like, this dude is tripping. He's trying to create a way of escape for himself. And you are right, being "allegedly molested" some 40-50 years ago doesn't make you a pedophile. His nasty behind is just hoping they feel sorry enough for him to give him a light punishment. Since he's gay, I guess he won't mind sharing a cell with Bubba, the six foot two muscular maniac who's got nothing but time on his hand. I'm hoping Bubba's first words are "Come on over here, I want you to meet my little friend". Oh, I'm sorry, I guess I should be more compassionate and Christ-like towards him. Whatever! He knew better, he deserves what he gets.


  2. >Yeah right…I read some of those comments until I became sick. Hes outting himself because now its the 'in' thing to do. Did any one see the episode of South Park and all the men turned metrosexual because of watching Queer Eye??? Mr. Garrison was pissed. Funny man…I didnt realize it has been 10 y6ears of South Park.Okay back to my point: A Gay Republican.


  3. >I'd like to see a non-congressional seat holder get away with that excuse. Interesting how on that Dateline:Predator program the cops usually end up slamming the pervert down onto the sidewalk with guns drawn. Why hasn't this puke been arrested again?
