From Brent Bozell's Oct. 4th column:

Since when have the Democrats ever insisted a politician be held accountable for a sex scandal involving a staffer, let alone the politician's party leaders? Take Durbin. Did he vote on any impeachment counts against President Clinton for perjury or obstruction of justice over Clinton's sexual relations with intern Monica Lewinsky?

Did Democrats -- the party of feminism, the party that hates sexual harassers -- demand accountability when President Clinton was accused of putting Kathleen Willey's hand on his crotch as she asked for a job? Or demand accountability when President Clinton was accused of dropping his pants in front of Paula Jones and asking that state employee to kiss his genitalia?

You know the answers. Let's continue.

Did Democrats -- who must have chortled at the 1996 GOP convention when NBC anchor Tom Brokaw suggested the Republicans don't think much about "women's issues" like rape -- demand answers from President Clinton when Juanita Broaddrick tearfully recounted to NBC in 1999 how Bill Clinton raped and brutalized her in a Little Rock hotel in the late 1970s?

Go beyond Clinton to see the media-Democrat complex and its partisan standards on sex scandals. On Aug. 25, 1989, The Washington Times revealed Rep. Barney Frank's male-prostitution scandal. Frank's lover, Stephen Gobie, ran an illicit gay sex ring out of Frank's home, and Frank fixed his local parking tickets. Did Frank resign? No. Was there a wave of media pressure on this lawmaker with law-breaking going on in his own home? No. He's still in the House today.

In 1994, news emerged that Democratic Rep. Mel Reynolds had a consensual sexual relationship with Beverly Heard beginning when she was 16. Heard said Reynolds gave her cash at each meeting and supplied her with his pager number and apartment keys. In taped phone conversations, they even plotted group sex with a 15-year-old Catholic high school girl Heard had said wanted to have sex with him.

Did the Democrats believe in holding Reynolds accountable? Bill Clinton pardoned him as he left office in 2001. He then went to work as a consultant for Jesse Jackson.

Don't forget 1983, when Republican Rep. Daniel Crane and Democratic Rep. Gerry Studds were censured by the House for sexual affairs with teenage pages (Studds with a male). Crane was defeated in a Republican primary; Studds arrogantly continued in Congress another 13 years.

Oh come on,

Despite Clinton's cheating, something apparently a lot of men do and plenty of Republicans, look at the Starr Panel that impeached him...

In 1997, Broaddrick had filed a sworn affadavit in the Paula Jones case saying Clinton had never assaulted her

According to Jack Nelson, Washington bureau chief of the Los Angeles Times, many journalists were skeptical;

"This is a story that's been knocked down and discredited so many times, I was shocked to see it in the [Wall Street] Journal today.... Everyone's taken a slice of it, and after looking at it, everyone's knocked it down. The woman has changed her story about whether it happened. It just wasn't credible."

I could as easily bring this one up:

Margie Schoedinger of Missouri City, Texas, a writer of Christian books, filed a pro se lawsuit against George W. Bush alleging that Bush had raped her in October 2000. The complaint also claims that she had been harassed, that she had been drugged and sexually assaulted numerous times by Bush and two other men purporting to be FBI agents, that her bank account had been interfered with, and that she had been threatened and beaten.

Here's an interesting fact about Ann Coulter: a commentator for MSNBC and a writer for the magazine "Human Events," was one of a group of lawyers who assisted Paula Jones's initial lawyers, Davis and Cammarata. Coulter's columns included analyses of the Paula Jones case, and she began writing legal briefs in the case.

While I dont intend to pick all of them apart, I figured these so recently and well covered facts should be pointed out. It was you folks that went after Clinton for a consenting relationship between adults. The Foley issue is about a 50 year old with not only political power over, (not to mention their job and future in politics) but also age, as these were Juvenile's 16 for this latest kid, even 17 would be illegal, lets not even talk about immoral, sleeping with a 21 year old intern is stupid and unethical for anyone, much less a president, but it pales in comparison to propositioning and probably (unproven as yet) molesting minors under his direct control. Might I also ad he was Chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Of course Conservatives are busy blaming, and threatening the victims of sexual assualt (as per usual) http://www.nola.com/news/t-p/frontpage/index.ssf?/base/news-6/1159942377135320.xml

And distorting the facts to manipulate the most ignorant and easily led among us. FOX 'NEWS' Labels Foley as a Democrat during O'REILLY FACTOR!

Here's a good history of Congressional Sex scandals: http://rjr10036.typepad.com/proceed_at_your_own_risk/2006/10/congressional_s.html it says plainly, some men are pigs, despite political party, religion, or how much they scream about their moral family values

I think this is all proof that this country is basically an outdoor insane asylum.
