A perfect opportunity
Now that Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) has resigned from Congress because of sexual improprieties involving teenage boys, there is a perfect opportunity for Patty Wetterling, if she is elected and the Democrats take control of the House.
Foley was ironically the leader of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. If Patty Wetterling is elected, who better to lead the caucus than a woman who has overcome the tragic kidnapping of her son to lobby successfully for tougher laws protecting the kids of America?
(P.S.-- anyone know if Patty was involved in starting this caucus? I found info that Rep. Nick Lampson founded the caucus, but I would venture to guess that victims' advocates were also involved.)
