FOLEY LEGISLATION OVERHAULING AND STRENGTHENING SEX OFFENDER PENALTIES INCLUDED IN ADAM WALSH CHILD SAFETY ACT OF 2005

July 21, 2006
WASHINGTON
- Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL), Co-chairman of the Missing and Exploited Children Caucus, applauded Senate passage of legislation he authored and introduced overhauling our nation’s sex offender registration and notification laws.
“For too long our nation has tracked library books better than it has sex offenders. That day is coming to an end,” said Foley. “Senator Hatch and Leader Frist have been resolute in keeping this legislation on track. We are closing loopholes that sex offenders and pedophiles have used to prey on children.”

Mark Foley Targets Nudists

In an apparent bid to raise his standing among conservatives and improve his chances at inning the U.S. Senate seat held by Bob Graham, U.S. Representative Mark Foley of Florida has launched an attack on a nudist camp sponsored by the American Association for Nude Recreation which caters to teens. Named Lake Como, it's operation is legal because under Florida law, public nudity is allowed as long as it is not lewd.

But Foley wants to change that and sees nothing "wholesome" about nudists and nudity. For Foley, nudity is about sex and allowing teens to run around naked will only inflame passions. He would rather they be covered up and ashamed of their bodies than to have a way to learn to be comfortable with who they are.
Just weird.
