State Rep. Joe Negron has been chosen -- or condemned -- to run for Congress in Foley's place (with the disgraced rep's name on the ballot). I think his photograph at left says it all. And there is this hilarious understatement from former state Republican Party chairman Tom Slade in Brendan Farrington's AP story: "The only way you win is they (voters) have got to vote for Mark Foley. That doesn't appear to me to be very attractive."
Fred Grimm writes about the "ethereal" nature of Mark Foley's downfall and provides an interesting history of D.C. sex scandals along the way.
