Foley’s Big Fuck Up

What would the morning be with a quick update on the scandal of the moment? We’ll keep it short, we promise.

Expanding their investigation into how deep in the shit Foley actually is, the FBI has started questions former Congressional pages who may have had contact with the disgraced pol in the past. First on the list, Jordan Edmund, who worked as a House page in both 2001 and 2002. The political go-getter’s currently slaving away on Republican Ernest Istook’s gubernatorial campaign in Oklahoma, where his meeting with the FBI will be taking place. Oh to be a fly on the wall in that one…

Edmund’s just the beginning of what may prove to be a disastrous investigation for Foley, who’s currently in rehab for his alleged alcohol problem. We can’t help but wonder if he’s keeping track of all this drama, or if he’s stuck his head in the sand a la Speaker Dennis “Hasturd” Hastert.

Speaking of ol’ Turd-ball, a new CBS poll “shows” (as much as these things really can) that 46% of American people think the Speaker should step down from him post. Tenacious to say the least, Hasturd’s insisted again and again that not only will he not step down, he intends to keep the seat for another term. Considering that the aforementioned CBS poll also suggests that four out of five people believe the GOP cares more about political standing than the safety of Congressional pages, Turdie better count his blessings…
