Alcoholism claims another GOP victim

Another Republican congressman has claimed that all of his personal problems can be attributed to his alcohol dependency issues. Mark Foley, former US Representative from Florida, resigned his post last week amid revelations that he not only sent salacious emails to government pages, but that he also instant messaged said pages with even sicker language.

And this guy was in charge of the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus! How's that for totally screwed up?!
"I strongly believe that I am an alcoholic and have accepted the need for immediate treatment for alcoholism and other behavioral problems."
Does this suggest that he's entered into a sexual predator prevention/rehab program, too?
