If Mark Foley died today, would the press describe him as a “gay pioneer”? But that’s how the Washington Post titled 12 term Massachusetts Democrat Gerry Studds’s obituary. You may recall Mr. Studds as the censured Congressman who got a 17 year old page drunk before having intercourse with him. The Post fails to mention those details although they put Mr. Studds’s disclaimer that it was just his personal life in there. It just goes to show that being a Democrat means never having to say you’re sorry.
