Mark Foley in Rehab
The Mark Foley story has officially jumped the shark. Now People magazine is getting a piece.
Following his abrupt resignation on Friday and a current FBI investigation into his alleged sexually explicit communications with underage Congressional pages, former Representative Mark Foley of Florida has checked himself into a rehab facility, according to his attorney, David Roth.
Roth, who would not name the treatment center but said the ex-legislator was admitted over the weekend, gave the Associated Press a statement from Foley, saying, "I strongly believe that I am an alcoholic and have accepted the need for immediate treatment for alcoholism and other behavioral problems."
Foley is going the fallen movie star route. I don't think it's going to help. Foley offered to meet the pages in person.
"I would drive a few miles for a hot stud like you," Foley said in one message obtained by ABC News.
The FBI has said that Foley attempting to meet a page may be the criminal act of soliciting for sex with a minor. The Blotter reports that Foley may have met a minor in San Diego.
