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