Good News, Bad News
Bad News: He is Mark Foley, a Republican congressman from Florida. It is good that he is taking the moral high ground and dropping out of the race, likely awaiting charges for sexual misconduct. This, however, does not justify his actions. And there is no way to believe that Republicans will be able to hold this seat, regardless of who replaces him in this campaign, and it is hard to tell how this might affect other races. Hopefully, the voters will recognize that the actions of this one nutjob does not reflect on the rest of the Republican party.
