full of scandal!

so that whole mark foley sex scandal with the email and the IMs?

whoa.

supposedly abc has 52 separate exchanges between young boys and the ex-congressman, though i've only found a few. i'm a little surprised that the instant message evidence is framed as so condemning by the sites and their commenters, since they're not exactly traceable, right? as far as i know AIM doesn't keep records in the way that an email server might, so i'm assuming these are just rtf files of the conversation the page happened to save. i doubt they could ever hold up in trial, for example.

ob-socio-cmc comment: DON'T THEY TEACH CONGRESSMEN HOW TO USE PUNCTUATION AND ZOMG WHY CAN'T HE CAPITALIZE
