CNN just reported that Mark Foley's attorney said his client is now seeking professional help. For what you might say? Is it for a sick desire to solicit children for sex on the Internet? Nope. Foley is seeking help for alcoholism!
I have been falling down drunk before, and never once have I stumbled into my computer room and thought "hey I am going to go online and pick up children". If this is what Foley thinks his problem is, then he is worse off than anyone ever imagined. True for the right, alcoholism is a perfect scapegoat. It can be used as an excuse to go on anti-Semite triads and now for soliciting sex from minors.
