Former Rep. Mark Foley's political career imploded in 2006, when it was revealed that the Republican had sent sexually explicit emails and IMs to underage male congressional pages.
The charges were especially shocking considering Foley had previously voted against LGBT rights, and the lawmaker resigned in disgrace.
People assumed Foley's political days were behind him: he came out of the closet, became a real estate agent and enjoyed life in West Palm Beach with his boyfriend, a dermatologist.
Then, last year, Foley began becoming more ingrained in the local political scene, hosting both a radio show and fundraisers. It wasn't long until rumors began circulating that Foley planned to run for West Palm Beach mayor.
Now, as the filing deadline approaches, Foley appears ready to announce his bid.
Will voters forgive and forget Foley's past transgressions? And, more importantly, should they?
