Disgraced Mark Foley Launching New Radio Show

Three years after he fled Congress for sending sexually explicit messages to teenage pages, Lake Worth’s Mark Foley resurfaces as a radio talk show host this week.

The show will air at 6 p.m. Tuesday on South Florida’s AM-960.

But a sample of the former Republican lawmaker’s views have been made public in an interview with the Conservative Republican Alliance web site.

Excerpts:

On his sex scandal: “I am solely responsible for the problems I faced in 2006. I took responsibility, I resigned from the job I loved and a career I had built for 30 years. I did not break any laws; however I owed my constituents, my colleagues, and my family a far better standard then I set.”

On returning to politics: “I doubt I will reenter the political arena as an office seeker, but I will use my experience and my voice to help others, to rally for economic sanity, to bring about real reforms on a local, state and even national level.”

On the Charlie Crist vs. Marco Rubio Republican Senate primary: “If anyone thinks this election for US Senate is over, then they better pay attention. We are in a very unique time in America’s political life…. There are no sure bets in politics, and money alone is not the key barometer.”
