Lights, Camera, FoleyAt a Blockbuster near you: Mark Foley, B-movie actor.
During a short role as a congressman who hires mercenaries to recover his kidnapped daughter, Foley shows an acting range that politely could be called limited. But with the disgraced Fort Pierce Republican now a household name, the movie is generating new buzz.Video excerpt here.
So Foley's acting role involved saving a child (albeit his pretend child in the movie), a pretend role that's similar to, you know, his role as chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children.
Speaking of the Congressional Pages' Best Friend, his lawyer announced his rehab stay is being extended, presumably until after Tuesday's elections. How convenient.
Meanwhile, the good-for-nothing Ethics Committee won't be releasing a report on their Foely investigation before Tuesday's election, even though the closed testimony of more than two dozen witnesses have been concluded. Doubly convenient.
The Committee argues it doesn't have time to digest all the info it gathered, but do you think the Republican-controlled Ethics Committee will sit on those testimonies if they looked favorable to Foley and more importantly to Hastert, Reynolds, and various sundry Republicans? Didn't think so.
