Lane Hudson started blogging in July of 2006. By the end of September, he posted the emails from Mark Foley to a 16 year old page. Thus began the scandal known as Foley-gate.

Prior to that, Lane worked as a staffer to Former U.S. Senator Fritz Hollings and former South Carolina Governor Jim Hodges. He has also worked as a fundraiser for Episcopal High School, a boarding school in Alexandria, VA. Recently, Lane worked at the Human Rights Campaign, but was fired when it was revealed that he was behind the anonymous blog, 'Stop Sex Predators' which first posted Mark Foley's emails to House Pages.

For his role in bringing to light the inappropriate behavior of Mark Foley and the subsequent fall out which affected the 2006 Midterm Election, Lane was profiled as a Time Magazine Person of the Year as an example of the new power of average citizens in the Information Age. The Advocate Magazine also recognized Lane as a Person of the Year.

Lane has appeared on CNN's Situation Room and Anderson Cooper 360. He has also been a guest on CNN Radio, the John and Ken Show on KFI Radio in Los Angeles and the Billy Sunshine Show on KRXA in Monterrey.

Lane now maintains a new blog, News For the Left.
