Republican Congressmen also lie about having sex

So - it seems top Republican Congressmen also lie about having sex with interns - er, pages. I ask you - what is worse - exploiting a person over 21 - legally impossible - or a boy of 16? Seems the top Republican leaders of the House of Representatives have known for almost a year of Rep. Foley's exploiting young boys - pages - and they covered it up. Now they are lying. They are changing their stories by the hour - and saying they did not know - or did know some or did or did not tell another Republican leader.

Ahhh - but our Republican friends have spent 10 years ranting about Bill Clinton having an affair with a woman over 21 - and lying about it. But their wrath is purely political - as again shown by yesterday's developments. Foley was one of those ranting about Clinton - even as Foley pursued young boys. And this guy was allowed to chair the committee responsible for stopping the exploitation of children - and while he chaired it for this past year the leaders of the Republican Congress knew he was pursuing boys.

Ahh - but that Bill Clinton. The Republicans tried for four years to impeach him for a sex affair with a grown woman - and at the same time harassed him for trying to get Osama bin Laden. But now - we are not talking about one congressman named Foley - we are talking about the top several leaders of the Republican House of Representatives. Cover up and lying. Don't expect any Republican outrage - just expect explanations and more cover up. Fox News to the rescue.
