I Suppose "Nancy Hearts Kiddie Rapers" is Too Much...

But if it had been your kid you'd probably be a little on the side of the polemic, I'm betting. For those people, and all the children who are exploited for political gain when they suffer, but never really helped by those who use them, this is for you:

Florida law enforcement officials have been denied access to the office computers of disgraced former Congressman Mark Foley, despite a direct appeal to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for help in their investigation of sexually explicit messages sent to current and former teenage congressional pages.

In response to a letter sent to Pelosi last month by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, House Deputy General Counsel Kerry Kircher denied the agency's request, citing the Speech or Debate Clause of the Constitution, which protects congressional papers.

"We have received (the House's) response, and our investigative team is reviewing it," FDLE spokesperson Heather Smith told ABC News. She said despite the House refusal to provide access to Foley's computers, the FDLE is still investigating the former Republican who now sells real estate in Palm Beach, Fla.

Foley resigned Sept. 29, 2006, hours after ABC News questioned him about sexually explicit messages with former congressional pages, some of whom were under the age of 18 at the time of the exchanges.

and isn't that weird, abc won't seem to let me copy and paste from that page, hmmm

Be sure to read page 2, in which Nancy's brave forces at House Counsel are just so sure that FL has no need for anymore data as the investigation is going to close soon anyway. I guess the FDLE didn't get the memo yet. Anyway, DOJ and the House office that reviewed this data decided nothing was there, move along, the rape and torture of children by those in positions of power is fun for everyone, la la la...

It's not like these people are public officials using computers paid for by US taxpayer.

It's not like there are laws or anything.

Why the fuck should anyone release anything? Emails, off the table. Crimes committed by the President of House Reps, off the table. Bags of bribe money in your freezer.. well that is privileged.

Nancy, why bother investigating anyone? Maybe she is reaching across the aisle to let all the crooks go free. She's building political capital, huzzah.

and this is one of those times. i rewrote this post about 10 times, because this is a family blog and that kind of anger-pr0n-dissing-cursing wouldn't have been appropriate.

but if i didn't already think the least of Nancy, i do now.

you really expect our rulers to throw one of their own to the wolves? Then who would obstruct the investigation when it's Nancy's turn?

When they came for William Jefferson,
I remained silent;
I was not William Jefferson

When they searched Mark Foley's computer,
I remained silent;
I was not Mark Foley's computer.

When Leader Nance shut down the Foley investigation. An opportunity to blow the Republican brand absolutely sky high, and she ... got all polite.
