Former Senator Foley – Caught with his hand in the perverbial cookie jar.

So, I was listening to Tom Leykis Show last night, as a group of us were going out to celebrate a guy friends 26th birthday.  Low and behold he brought up Fmr. Sen. Foley and asked for supporters of the afore mentioned to call in on live air and talk to why they support him. Do you know that of the three people actually put on the air not one of them could support Fmr. Sen. Foley with a plausible argument!

Now how sad is that.Â

REALITY CHECK: When someone is in a postion of power, they live in a bubble, where people are always watching their every move.Â

Here is what amazes me.  Why would you, at the ripe old age of 50 something years old, feel the need to destroy what you’ve worked hard to obtain, over an orgasm?  You can not tell me that any orgasm at any time is worth tossing away ones life and hard work.  The least this man could have done is wait until the young man/men in question were 18.  Two little years, that’s 104 weeks, 730 days.Â

The excuse that he used fake id, well I hate to say it, but hello lets wake up and smell the starbucks here, you can not tell me that you can’t tap into one of numerous pipelines to establish this young man’s rightful age.  When in doubt, DON’T WHIP IT OUT! It’s pretty simple really.Â

Now, he’s busy stating now that he was molested as a youngster, as thought that might deflect the heat coming his way, but come on nowÂ

Let’s just open this up…  You can blame society, you can blame your parents, you can blame your teachers, hell you can blame anyone but the bottom line, the buck stops here line is, BLAME YOURSELF.  Actions have consequences, sucky as that might sound.  As not only an adult, but also as someone who was elected to represent the fine people who elected you into your position of power, a few elected officials seem to think they are above and beyond the law, that they will not get caught for any misconduct they engage in. Bottom line here… don’t do the crime if you’re not willing to do the time.Â

NEWS FLASH: An elected official is voted upon by his constituents to represent their best interests, not further ones sexual desires.Â

Before you think that I’m anti gay, two of my best male friends in this world are gay.  The crap they put up with before Foley was hard enough; I can’t imagine the barbs that will be shot their way, now that the distinguished gentleman Fmr. Sen. Foley has come out of the closet.  This will just put more fuel on the fire for those hard core religious fanatics’ who believe in taking away from gay rights and liberties.  They deal with people who are so focused on what they do in the bedroom that they can’t seem to grasp that gay and lesbian people are just like you and me. Normal

So, as I see it Fmr. Sen. Foley, to put it bluntly, you screwed the proverbial pooch here. You owe not only the young man/men you feel the need to be sexually aggressive with online or text message or however else you managed, the good people, who in good faith elected you to represent them, the congress that you managed to disgrace with your actions and lack of thought, and the people of the United States of America, who are now not only hearing about your lack of digression and control, a very sincere apology. Not one of those trite oops I screwed up, not one of those lets blame everyone but me, but a true from the heart I’m sorry, and then deal with what is doled out to you for your lack of judgment.  Â
