Gerry Studds Dies

The man who was Mark Foley before Mark Foley was Mark Foley (!) has died. Former Congressman Gerry Studds was the first openly gay man elected to Congress and faced controversy when it was found he had sex with a 17-year old male page. He however fought back the against the scrutiny and set the trend for Democrats getting away with whatever they please. Quite a legacy.
