Rep. Mark Foley Needs to Disclose the Identity of His Abuser

If Rep. Mark Foley was the victim of a crime, he needs to identify the perpetrator in order to protect other minors. It’s not enough that he’s disclosed that he’s a victim of sexual abuse, he needs to prevent future abuse by naming his accuser.
In all the political uproar, this message concerning the safety of our children has been lost. Just as the Catholic bishops thought first about protecting the institution, the Congressional leaders first considered their power and prestige rather than the safety of children.
That’s the real story and the tragedy of the Mark Foley saga.
