oh, the irony.

so florida republican representative mark foley has resigned after being busted for allegedly soliciting minors on the internet. apparently, he was the house caucus chairman for missing and exploited children, railing against those who "used the internet for the sexual explotation of children," saying that they were "sick people" in need of "mental health counseling." and he would know!

his preferred group of kiddies? congressional house pages. i couldn't make this stuff up. pot, meet kettle... our esteemed elected officials, hard at work. no pun intended.

and who says the government works at a snail's pace? if you go to his official house site, it has already been removed, replaced with a vacancy announcement. pretty quick work for something that went down last night.
