Former Congressman Mark Foley may have left office in a haze of homo-flavored scandal, but that doesn’t mean he’s not still lurking where you least suspect him. His picture graces the program for the 10th annual Prism Awards – a show which describes itself as such:

The programs were printed up last year, before Lane Hudson helped instigate the page scandal in which we all learned that Foley has a thing for the lads.
