Debunking the Foley myth machine

Media Matters does an excellent job of countering the GOP spin and talking points lies in a special report.

A few choice ones blown away with facts:
* Democrats and their allies orchestrated the Foley scandal as a political dirty trick
* Hastert did not learn about Foley’s alleged behavior until September 29
* Alleged Foley emails that House Republicans possessed were merely “overly friendly”
* Foley scandal has not affected voters or Congressional races
* Hastert and the GOP leadership forced Foley to resign after they learned of the lurid instant messages
* Gay Men are More Likely Than Heterosexual Men to Sexually Abuse Children
