Now the Democrats have a predator of their own and lingering questions over how party leaders handled the bizzare case of New York Congressman Eric Massa and his sexual harassment of male staff members could mean trouble in the voting booth in November.
Foley and Massa both left Congress in disgrace. In both cases, leaders of their party tried to look the other way for too long with failed hopes that the whole thing would fade away.
In Washington, karma has a nasty way of coming back around to bite you in the ass. Now Massa gives the Democrats the same problem the GOP faced four years ago and Republicans have gone into a feeding frenzy over a possible coverup by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
The jury is still out but American voters comprise the jury in this case and they will deliver their verdict in November.
