So we have 2 men with something in common: Mark Foley (ex-Congressman, FL) and Dan Sutton (Senator, N.D.). Although Foley's a Republican and Sutton a Democrat, both were involved in scandals involving male pages. Foley was forced to resign. Sutton has merely been censured. Foley wrote highly suggestive emails and text messages to pages (he was never actually accused of molesting any of them). Sutton is accused of fondling a page he shared a bed with. Had Sutton been a Republican the scandal would have been plastered all over the mainstream media. If you google both men, the difference in results is rather interesting.
Sutton denies the accusations leveled at him, and who knows what the actual truth is, but sharing a bed with an underage teen (family friend or no), which he does acknowledge having done, is totally inappropriate.
The behavior, in both cases, was morally incorrect, and yet the punishment was not, by any means, meted out in an equal fashion. Just another example of liberal hypocrisy. You can read more about this inequality here.
