The evidence has been dribbling out (no pun intended).
But so far it seems like Foley's sex life with former pages was adolescent and pitiful.
The actual incriminating documents are several series of instant messages. The more recent emails, it now appears, were innocuous.
One series (2003) took place from approximately 7:25PM to 8:15PM. During that time, messages were exchanged every few minutes. Another similar series took place on another evening, and like the first contained a string of messages over a period of time. The lingo could be best described as the type of risque talk that can be heard on advertisements for phone sex. e.g. MMMMM horney? me too.
This silly banter between a 50 something man and a teenager is pretty lame.
Clear from the context of the messages is the geographic distance between Foley and the "victim", and the fact that the "victim" was no longer working in Congress.
Our tolerant and liberal friends on the left side of the aisle are hard at work on conservative websites trying to make the case that criticism of Mssrs. Studds, Franks, Clinton and the noted Mel Reynolds necessitates the political death sentence for Foley and anyone in his party.
The evidence simply fails to make out the case.
