25 Days until Election Day
I've refrained from posting articles about Mark Foley because surely everyone is aware of that scandal by now. This article from the Nation, however, brings to light something perhaps scarier than even a letcherous congressman IMing teenage boys: "some anti-Republican gay-rights activists composed a memo containing the names of closeted gay Republican Congressional staffers and sent it to leading Christian-right advocacy groups," implying that those staffers may or may not have shielded attention from Foley's actions. I honestly don't know what the worst part of that sentence is (aside from my construction of it), but there's a lot. How many twisted turns are in store for us? New Yorkers, there are 25 days until Election Day... which means you need to send in your registration today if you haven't yet.
