FOLEY SAYS HE WILL SEEK TREATMENT FOR ALCOHOLISM
NBC News reported this morning that former congressman Mark Foley, who has not been seen publicly since resigning from the House of Representatives Friday, will be entering rehab for what he said in a statement is a "strong belief" that he is an alcoholic.
The FBI is investigating the inappropriate and, in some cases, sexually explicit e-mails and AOL instant messages to determine if any laws were broken. Meanwhile, House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R - IL) has written federal Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Florida Governor Jeb Bush to request that the Department of Justice and Florida Department of Law Enforcement, respectively, investigate Foley's conduct.
This won't be over for awhile.
