In a bizarre bit of political news, former Rep. Mark Foley, the disgraced Republican from Florida who incited furor across the nation when he admitted to sending sexually-charged emails to underage male Congressional pages, has been given his very own radio show to talk about issues facing conservative America.
WSVU 960am, a Palm Beach area radio station, has greenlit a show featuring Fley to debut on September 22. The title: Inside the Mind of Mark Foley.
The station is a hodgepodge of sorts, mixing some talk radio (Foley will join nationally syndicated shows like the Don Imus Show), sports (NFL broadcasts for the Dallas Cowboys and MLB broadcasts for the Boston Red Sox), and adult-contemporary music.
Foley was cleared of any criminal charges following the revelation of lewd, provocative emails to young boys back in 2006. However, the scandal and his subsequent resignation was one of the single most significant events in the turning of the national mood against Congressional Republicans in the run-up to the 2006 election that saw Democrats take control of both chambers of Congress.
