Aren't You Glad to Have the GOP Protecting a Predatory GOP Pedophile Who's Also In Charge Of Not Exploiting Children Sexually?

Recently resigned Congressman Mark Foley has worked for a long time for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. When he resigned, the Center said it was very sorry to see him go.

I think everyone at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and everyone who is interested in Bushist fascist family values needs to read ex-Congressman Mark Foley's obscene exchange with an underage boy, available here.

This is what's called grooming.

It's how predatory adults sexually seduce minors. Which is, I believe, a crime (at least to those of us who still believe in the rule of law).

And Foley's doing it right under the nose of the kid's Mommy, who thinks her son is safe because she's right there in the same house with her kid.

Well, Mommy's wrong.

Here's a WaPo story about House Speaker Hastert knowing about Foley's criminal behavior since 2005.

Here's a WaPo story about Foley's career "protecting children."

Here's an article on preventing predators from "grooming" their prey, as Foley did:
This article is designed to increase awareness of the sexual predators who infiltrate youth-serving organizations. Since 97% of these predators have no criminal history, and virtually all of them maintain "trophy testimonials" to offer as references, ordinary screening methods are grossly ineffective. Worse, the customary reference-checking methods are mistaken for "screening" and further fail to elicit red flag information, which would suggest risks. . . .
Of specific focus in this article are the prolific serial, preferential predators described by Kenneth Lanning so well in his free book from the National Center on Missing & Exploited Children . . . this type of predator averages from dozens to hundreds of victims, operating undetected for whole lifetimes because they are expert at deception, . . . expert at impersonating "the perfect volunteer" and because 97% of them will never have a criminal history or fingerprints-on-file.

Ring a bell?

Why is the GOP protecting pedophiles?

Don't they even know enough to move them on to another parish?

Here, a WaPo story on the sadness of chickenhawks coming home to roost.
