LA Times: Former page eventually had sex with Foley

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

The L.A. Times revealed that a former page did hook-up with Foley. The young man had turned 21 by the time they had their encounter. He also described how Foley was always checking out the pages:

His sexual encounter was in the fall of 2000, he said. At the time, he was 21 and a graduate of a rural Northeastern college.

The former page's account is consistent with Foley's assertion that he did not have sexual relations with minors, an issue that will be key to determining whether he committed crimes. The legal age of consent varies from state to state; in the District of Columbia, where the pages live in supervised dormitories, it is 16.

Yet the former page's exchanges with Foley offer a glimpse of possible predatory behavior by the congressman as he assessed male teenagers assigned as House errand-runners.

In the messages, Maf54 described how years earlier, he had looked to see whether the former page had an erection in his tight white pants while the then-teenager was working near the congressman. Maf54 also speculated about the sexual attributes of other males in the same page class, including the observation that one young man was "well hung."
The young man and his friends "were surprised that it took so long for Foley 'to get caught.'" Foley did "get caught" years ago, but no one in House GOP leadership did anything about it.
