I was barely aware that the Congressional page program still existed, but if it wasn't already clear that it should have been ended long ago, it certainly should be now.  No, I don't think that most Congressmen or Senators would even think about doing what Foley has done, although the bipartisan page scandal in 1984 involving Democrat Gerry Studds and Republican Daniel Crane suggests it isn't unique, either.  And that one also disproves some of what you'll see on the FREEP boards that abusing teenagers is somehow exclusively the province of gays, since Crane was involved with a FEMALE page, to the best of my recollection.

We have all seen grown men and women who either tried to have sex with kids or did, get pulled into the spotlight and sent to jail.

Apparently, the rule of law does not apply to members of Congress.

They lie incessantly, they steal with impunity and now it appears they can have sex with children and that's OK too.

There clearly are two stes of rules in this country. One set for Congress and the President and one set for the rest of us.

This needs to change because, as of right now, we do not live in a democracy, we live in an oligarchy where the rich and powerfull can steal the bread from our mouths and our kids from our homes. How long are we going to put up with this?
