Drudge is trying to spin FoleyGate so bad that he is looking more like and idiot than people already knew. He is now saying that the pages conducted these email and IM exchanges with Foley as a “prank”:
Faced with claims by the conservative political website The Drudge Report on Thursday that lurid instant message exchanges between disgraced former Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) and the former page who was outed on a conservative website yesterday were the result of an elaborate prank, insiders at ABC News say the network stands behind its story.
Even if it was a “prank” to these children, it was not a “prank” to Foley. He obviously was very much into the reality of these messages. Trying to dismiss any wrongdoing because it was a “prank” would also mean the thousands of would-be molesters, who are behind bars because the children they thought they were talking to were actually police officers, would not be in jail.
ABC is Also planning on releasing much more information on Foley, including more messages:
RAW STORY has also learned that ABC plans to release additional stories that indicate that Foley’s behavior extended to other congressional pages who served on Capitol Hill during different sessions of Congress.
Stay tuned – this story is far from over.
