Mark Foley's Hollywood Comeback

Los Angeles: Beaches, boys, bars . . .

. . . so can Mark Foley be far behind? Not at all, according to The Washington Post.

Post blogger Mary Ann Akers reports this morning that America's most famous instant messenger is planning his second coming (because his first didn't get him in nearly enough trouble) in - where else?! - Hollywood.

"Foley has been paying visits recently to Beverly Hills, where he was spotted just last weekend," Akers reports. "We figure he may be looking for a job in Hollywood. Because in addition to his cringingly ironic role as chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children, Foley - until he resigned on Sept. 29, 2006 - also served as head of the Congressional Entertainment Industries Caucus. In that role, he cultivated lots of contacts in Hollywood."

The casting couch is about to open up, boys.

"Foley and his partner, Layne Nisenbaum - who, as you can see here, specializes in cosmetic surgery - live in Palm Beach in a nice house on the Intercoastal Waterway," Akers says. And the two have become "such a fixture on the Palm Beach social scene that, according to the Palm Beach Post, an upcoming art fair in West Palm Beach is being promoted with 'Warholized' portraits of 'well-known locals, including Palm Beach dermatologist and former U.S. Congressman Mark Foley's partner, Layne Nisenbaum.'"

Perhaps the Minneapolis government will buy one to decorate a certain airport restroom.

And never underestimate the power of a scandal-plagued middle-aged man in Hollywood.

Some on L.A.'s social scene seem downright anxious to share the former Congressman's woefully over-extended 15 minutes of fame. Maf54 has become quite the sought-after dinner guest, The Post says, and old friends "seem to be welcoming [Foley] back into the fold."

As Foley once noted himself:

Maf54 (7:58:37 PM): well I have aa totally stiff wood now

What is this man thinking? God help us if he's resume shopping at the studios. (Hey! . . . Isn't Hollywood infamous for its pages, too?)

Hob-knobing among the Tinstletown glitterati, though, would seem to leave little time for that pesky rehab. As Akers reports, there's "No word on whether Foley is continuing his treatment for sexual addiction and alcoholism."

After all . ..

Maf54 (7:58:44 PM): i bet..taht would hurt

I'm just glad we might be getting rid of him here in Florida...

Woo-hoo!

So he preys on teenagers and now gets to go Hollywood glam? Only in the Republican Party could something like this happen.

We will surely see him walking the red carpet very soon.

As are you, apparently....

This is excellent gossip.

*YAWN*
uh, not really...

Because consensual sex between two adult men is the equivalent of sexually engaging underage men over whom you have a significant amount of power?

No way.

Sidenote: R, that was probably the bitchiest thing I've ever read on Bilerico. Sincere congrats!

Thanx Nick!
I wear the word BITCH like a medal of honor!!

I think the most disturbing part of this is:

Foley and his partner, Layne Nisenbaum... ...the two have become "such a fixture on the Palm Beach social scene...

So how was it not more widely known that Foley was gay if he has a long-term partner that the local paper acknowledges? It seems as if the media is just as culpable in this as Foley himself...

I'm w/ Bil... I didn't know he had a partner! I'm guessing the Mister didn't get to go to many fund-raisers.
