A Golden Opportunity Missed

You know it’s a real pity that Mark Foley’s Christian name wasn’t Thomas. That way you could have given the act of sending suggestive e-mails to young boys a new name.

You could have called it ‘Tom Folery’.

There is a Tom Foley after all. He was democratic house speaker in Congress from 1989 to 1995. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any record of him hitting on young staff members.

Damn! So close.

Still, I’m determined to use this pun in some kind of context. Have to dig around in his past a little more. Something’s bound to turn up. He is a Congressman after all. Mmm, there’s something here about a whip……
