I'm pretty sure he hasn't been convicted of anything, so that would mean he hasn't been to prison.

Hmmm....Ted Haggard and Mark Foley in the news on the same day. Now we only need Larry Craig to have a closeted Republican caucus.

I'm so sad that a person who made a career out of making life harder for people based on their sexual preference has had his life destroyed...because of his sexual preference.

He probably got rear-ended on his way to the studio.

Why is he not in prison?

Well, it wasn't entirely because of his sexual preference. If he'd been involved in an affair with a man his own age, or even some 23-year-old twink, it wouldn't have been nearly as personally toxic. He went after (a) underage boys (b) who were professionally subordinate to him, and (c) in a manner specifically prohibited by legislation he himself had championed. That's what did it.

"There was never anywhere in those conversations where someone said, 'Stop,' or 'I'm not enjoying this,' or 'This is inappropriate'

That's a lie.

Also, I guess the pages were just fine with you showing up at their dorm drunk and demanding to be let in. They love shiat like that.

You belong in jail.

I tossed you three votes. Sorry, but I had to support the Truck Nutz.

One point I don't think has ever been touched on in the Mark Foley page scandal: have you SEEN some of those pages???

Yet the Family Values party managed to protect him from prosecution on all of this.

This. I could bang a white hot 17 year old, (well, it's possible. Not likely, but possible) and no matter how much she enjoyed that 15 seconds, I'd still be guilty.

You are aware that the age of consent is 16 in most states, right? Although some states do bump it up to 18 when it involves authority figures, I don't know if what he did was even illegal.
