In addition to explicit sexual language, former Congressman Mark Foley’s Internet messages also include repeated efforts to get the underage recipient to rendezvous with him at night.
“I would drive a few miles for a hot stud like you,” Foley said in one message obtained by ABC News.
The FBI says it has opened a “preliminary investigation” of Foley’s e-mails. Federal law enforcement officials say attempts by Foley to meet in person could constitute the necessary evidence for a federal charge of “soliciting for sex” with a minor on the Internet.
That’s the biggie. If he was trying to solicit something online with a minor, then his goose probably cooked and he could be looking at some serious jail time.
Meanwhile, Foley has checked into rehab for “alcohol and behavioral issues.”
