October 4, 2006 — WASHINGTON – Mark Foley, who resigned from Congress because he got caught sending sexually suggestive e-mails to teenage male pages, had a political relationship with the very anti-gay Church of Scientology, it was revealed yesterday.
The controversial cult-like church has major operations in Clearwater, Fla., which just happens to be in Foley’s district.
The group also hosted a fund-raiser for Foley in May 2003 when he was considering a Senate run.
That book defines “homosexuality” as a “sexual perversion.”
Although he never officially came out of the closet, that Foley was gay was one of the worst-kept secrets in Washington.
A spokeswoman for the church did not return calls seeking comment.
