Eric you appear to be talking about Barney Frank's
 having paid for sex and Tom Malin having been a prostitute.
(Perhaps you think it significant that they are *gay*?)

The point about Foley is that he proposed laws
penalizing people for having online sex with minors
(and perhaps for conduct falling short of that)
while, it seems, engaging in it himself, those minors
being, moreover, pages for his congressional party
and in their care.

I regret that you can't see the difference.
