Sometimes I Feel Like A Nut, Sometimes An Allman

10/11/2006 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Now that Mark Foley's found "one way out" of Congress -- by allegedly sending salacious messages to teenage pages -- maybe he can get one of his old jobs back, as a ramblin' man for the Allman Brothers Band.

It turns out that Foley, the disgraced former congressman from Florida, once served as an "honorary" gear-hauler for the perpetually on-tour Allman Brothers in the early 90s, when he was a state senator in Florida. Foley described the experience in an interview as "wild" and "crazy."

What's more, that particular job helped him become buddies with late Rep. Sonny Bono and led to his taking over the House's Entertainment Task Force after Bono's death. Foley was friends with Allman drummer Butch Trucks, and, in his former job as a realtor, once sold a house to former Allman guitarist Dickey Betts. He ended up meeting Cher and then Sonny through Cher's ex-husband Gregg Allman.

But his showbiz-fixation didn't stop there. Foley also copped in a 1999 interview with E! Online to being an avid lover of such high-brow fare as "Ally McBeal," "Melrose Place," and especially of actress Heather Locklear. He was not so much a fan of Julia Roberts in "Mary Reilly," to whom he passed a card at the premiere of "Runaway Bride" in Hollywood.

This creature is pure sh*t, and should be ignored. (I'm glad he's a Republican.)

That list of freaky sex Republicans left off quite a few:
Jeff Gannon, gay hustler, had a White House Press Pass for "Talon News". White House records show he spent the night there a few times and was in the building when there were no press events. Who was he seeing?

Jim West, Mayor of Spokane and ex-Speaker of the State House, was trolling for young guys on the internet and would offer internships.

And my ALL TIME FAVORITE: Billy James Hargis, preacher from Oklahoma, had a church and a college, was on TV, school's motto: For Christ, Against Communism. He fell fast and hard when a young couple he married had the same confession to each other on their wedding night: Honey, I slept with Billy James!!!!!!!!!

News flash- Democrats knew aout the emails for a while and were sitting on them as well. Also there is a list of gay republicans about to be revealed by democrats thinking it will scare conservatives into not voting this November - who are the hypocrites now? This election is not about Foley - it is about the issues - where Democrats have no idea where they stand.

Thank You Kdez, for your eloquent presentation, and patience in trying to eduacte those that just cannot see the truth that is in front of them, no matter how obvious.

THE REASON THAT THIS IS A REPUBLICAN ISSUE IS THAT THEY STAND FOR FAMILY VALUES, AND IGNORED THIS ISSUE, DID NOTHING ABOUT IT, YET KNEW ALL ALONG.

YES, FOLKS, THEY KNOWINGLY IGNORED THIS ONE. DID NOT CARE.

THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT FAMILY VALUES, FOLKS. WAKE UP.

They are an INTOLERANT GROUP, and yet they seem to have so many secrets.


They pose to be that which they are not. In other words= HYPOCRITES.

NAME ONE POLITICIAN's SON WHO IS IN THE WAR.

THE REASON THAT THIS IS A REPUBLICAN ISSUE IS THAT THEY STAND FOR MORALITY, AND CONTINUED TO LET THIS FOLEY WORK FOR YOU.

THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU, FOLKS, UNLESS YOUR NET WORTH IS IN THE 100'S OF MILLIONS, TO BILLIONS.

Bush senior had a documented mistress for years, whose home he paid for. This is a known fact. Strom Thurmond (segregationist) has a black daughter that he kept a secret during his whole career. Family values, you say?

please educate yourselves...this is TOTALLY A REPUBLICAN ISSUE.

I am a conservative. Foley should be prosecuted to the fullest. As should all those in office that were aware of his behavior. If this were a true corporation, all those aware of a fellow co-workers' actions should be held accountable for quelling information. Companies would in fact discipline all those involved. However, Blaming the Republicans would be blaming the company, you must separate the one or one's from the many in order to do honest justice to all those involved.
