When it rains, it pours, and when the sky opened up on Mark Foley, the leveys failed and the dams broke.

It started when a congressional page came forward in the press, alleging that Mark Foley had requested a photo. Then another page came forward and revealed sexually explicit text messages and instant messages. Then more pages came forward, charging Foley with a streak of sexually inappropriate conduct running at least 10 years back.

Here is an excerpt from one of Mark Foley's scandalous text messages to a teenage congressional page.
