Double standards are showing

October 5, 2006

In 1983, then-Democratic Rep. Gerry Studds of Massachusetts was caught in a similar situation. In his case, Studds had sex with a male teenage page.

In 1989, Rep. Barney Frank, also of Massachusetts, admitted he’d lived with Steve Gobie, a male prostitute who ran a gay sex-for-hire ring out of Frank’s apartment. Frank, it was later discovered, used his position to fix 33 parking tickets for Gobie.

What happened to Frank? The House voted 408-18 to reprimand him — a slap on the wrist. Today he’s an honored Democratic member of Congress, much in demand as a speaker and “conscience of the party.”.

Roughly between 1992 and 1996 the former President Clinton was having an affair with an intern, Clinton was proud of his deception and lying to the united states citizens
In 2001, President Clinton, who had his own intern problem, commuted the prison sentence of Illinois Rep. Mel Reynolds, who had sex with a 16-year-old campaign volunteer and pressured her to lie about it. (Reynolds also was convicted of campaign spending violations.).
Rep. Mark Foley sent explicit text messages and emails to a 16-year-old congressional page back in 2003, who in Washington D.C., was of age and consent. Were any physical sex acts involved no, have Democratic elected Officials have physical sexual contact in person with their volunteers or pages, yes.

Was it illegal no, was it immoral yes, did mark foley do the right thing by resigning, yes, do the Democrats and the Media have double standards yes.

Is the G.O.P. protecting him, no will he be prosecuted if laws were broken the G.O.P. do hope so and will help with the prosecution.

Will Democrats ever use the same morals and standards they are trying to apply against Mark Foley based on past actions and track record never
