Mark Foley, Kevin McCarty re-emerge for Romney’s Forum Club speech

by George Bennett | March 8th, 2010

WEST PALM BEACH — Former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley and former GOP activist and bond underwriter Kevin McCarty are making their first post-scandal Forum Club appearances at today’s sold-out luncheon speech by Mitt Romney.

Foley, once a Forum Club regular, hasn’t been back since he resigned in a 2006 Internet sex scandal.

“People have been begging me to come back to the Forum Club,” Foley said as he worked the Kravis Center ballroom before the lunch.

McCarty was released in January after serving eight months in federal prison for failing to report wife Mary McCarty’s honest services fraud as a Palm Beach County commissioner. She’s serving a three-and-a-half-year sentence. Kevin McCarty declined to comment.

    Alcee took away his judgeship Hastings, Jesse Jackson Charlie Rangel all screwed up and are spokespersons for the democrats.

    Even the National Enquirer would not find this newsworthy. Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel. Oh, then again, this IS the Palm Beach Post.

  4. Fed Up Says:

    McCartys have no morals or ethics. If they really wanted to make any amends for their sins against the people of PBC, they would fall off the face of the earth. As for Mark Foley, he did well as our representative, but messed up his private life and has paid his dues personally.
