As co-chairman of the Missing and Exploited Children’s Caucus, former GOP Rep. Foley called for an investigation into a children-permitted nudist camp.


CNSNews.com:

A congressman who tracks missing and exploited children said he found “truly disturbing” a report of a nudist camp in Florida for children as young as 11 years of age and is calling for an investigation.

Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) asked Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist to investigate a nudist camp for children 11 to 18 years of age at the Lake Como Resort near Tampa.

“As co-chairman of the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children’s Caucus, I’m asking that current Florida law be reviewed to determine if this camp is indeed legal or if it has simply slipped under the radar screen of law enforcement for the past 10 years,” Foley said in a June 18 letter to Bush and Crist.

I’d be willing to bet that this sort of “concern” for children was nothing more than a form of camouflage or protective coloration, as if attacking the rights of naturists to raise their children as they see fit would conceal his salacious e-mails, communications that made pages nervous and uncomfortable.
