Foley out of rehab and possibly into hot water
ABC’s Blotter reported this AM that former page predator Rep. Mark Foley, is out of the Arizona tank where he’s undergone rehab for “substance and his own alleged sexual abuse as a minor,” but it looks like he may not enjoy his freedom for long.
Florida law enforcement officials are building a possible criminal case against disgraced former Congressman Mark Foley, R-Fla., based on sexually explicit instant messages that were sent from Pensacola, Fla., to an underage high school student, thereby falling under the state’s tough law on Internet sexual predators, ABC News has learned.
…People familiar with the case said one instant message in particular, from Pensacola, could serve as the foundation of the case because it would allow charges to be brought in a county far from Foley’s Palm Beach, where he was a popular figure. Law enforcement officials say any decision to bring charges is still a month or two off and also depends on testimony from the former pages who received Foley’s messages.
Here’s a link to some of the infamous instant messages — what a blast from the past:
“How my favorite young stud doing,” Foley, using the screen name Maf54, asks at the beginning of the exchange.
“Did any girl give you a hand job this weekend,” Maf54 asks a few minutes later.
The 17-year-old boy responds, “lol no.”
“Good so your getting horny,” Maf54 says, adding later, “i am hard as a rock…so tell me when your reaches rock.”
Later, Maf54 writes, “um so a big buldge [sic].” “Love to slip them off of you and gram [sic] the one eyed snake.” “get a ruler and measure it for me.”
