Foley Was Sexually Abused as a Youth, His Lawyer Says


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Oct. 3 — In another day of revelations about former Representative Mark Foley, his lawyer said Tuesday that as a teenager, Mr. Foley had been molested by a clergyman and had "kept the shame to himself" until now (my italics). The lawyer also issued the congressman's first public acknowledgment that he is gay.


Looks like Foley played his hole card.*
