ABC is reporting that former Congressman Mark Foley’s attorney is going to hold a news conference shortly. My guess is that Foley’s actions have been sufficient for a D.A. somewhere to charge Foley on charges of soliciting a minor — there’s no question as to evidence, and there’s no way a grand jury would fail to uphold an indictment. Sadly for the nation, this story isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
UPDATE: Instead, Foley is now saying that he was molested by a clergyman when he was between 13 and 14 and is gay. None of which excuse his actions in any way. Foley seems to be trying to garner sympathy for himself: I rather doubt that will work.
UPDATE: Orin Kerr of The Volokh Conspiracy has some interesting background on the legal issues that arise from this sordid tale.
