FoleyFest continues. Having failed with the “well, Bill Clinton did it too” defense, we now find Focus on the Family taking a new tack (HT Talking Points Memo):
Colorado Springs, Colo. — Focus on the Family Action Senior Vice President of Government and Public Policy Tom Minnery issued the following statement today about the scandal involving ex-Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla:
“This is not a time to be talking about politics, but about the well-being of those boys who appear to have been victimized by Rep. Foley. If he is indeed guilty of what he is accused of, it is right that he resigned and that authorities are looking into whether criminal charges are warranted.
“This is yet another sad example of our society’s oversexualization, especially as it affects the Internet, and the damage it does to all who get caught in its grasp.”
Something I have learned: When someone says, “This is not a time to be talking about politics,” that means it’s an excellent time to do just that. Oh, and check out the internet-made-him-do-it defense. Damn internet! This is almost too good.
