Angry with his treatment at the hands of the Republican Party and its Congressional leadership, Mark Foley threatened to found a party for pedophiles: “All the good I did for children in Congress and this is what I get for it? They’re a bunch of ingrates is all they are. Well, now that I’m an outed sexually abused gay pedophile I’m going make a clean break with it. No more Mr. Squeaky Clean Traditional Values. I’m going to let it all hang out. And if the Republicans don’t like it they can suck my horny [censored].”
No, that didn’t actually happen. But the following item in today’s NY Times got me thinking:
The Netherlands: Pedophile Party Lacks Support
A political party formed by pedophiles will probably not succeed in gathering the 570 signatures needed by Tuesday to run in national elections next month, the party’s secretary, Norbert de Jonge, said. The party, formed in May, has managed to attract just about 100 supporters. It seeks to lower the legal age of consent to 12, from 16, and to legalize child pornography.

Mark Foley’s gotta be thinking: “Man, if only I’d served in the Dutch parliament instead of Congress. Then I wouldn’t have gotten into this mess in the first place. And just think of how much page head I could get if the age of consent was 12 instead of 18 like in D.C.!”
They oughta sack this guy de Jonge and bring in a real professional…like Foley. What they need is some of his financial clout and political organizing skills plus a little more of that horny factor and they’d be on the ballot in no time. The Dutch could use a good dose of pedophile horniness right about now. Mark Foley’s got to be feeling a little left out of the Party/party so to speak. What better idea than to hop on a plane and make a new life for himself as an outed and now public pedophile?
