We knew Wetterling was for children's issues. We know she works with this abducted and exploited children's caucus already. And we had to have known that if she was elected she would join this caucus as surely as the sun rises tomorrow. And we know there are pedophiles in the world; it is not shocking in a world full of sinners to find one in Congress. There is nothing new learned from the Foley affair that makes one more or less inclined to vote for Wetterling or Bachmann or Binkowski.
If child safety issues mattered to you before, you were more inclined to vote for Wetterling before Foley and more inclined to vote for her after Foley. If pro-life issues mattered to you before, you were more inclined to vote for Bachmann before Foley and more inclined to vote for Bachmann after Foley. Foley changes nothing in this race, except for the amount of advertising given Wetterling for free by the New York Times.Meanwhile, Wetterling only talks about Foley, not about her other issues. I'm not her campaign manager, but if I was I'd tell her not to stand pat on her children's safety background in this election.
