But when Foley's friend saw the Congressman again this spring, something had changed. To the source's surprise, Foley told him he would indeed be standing for re-election. What happened? Karl Rove intervened.
According to the source, Foley said he was being pressured by "the White House and Rove gang," who insisted that Foley run. If he didn't, Foley was told, it might impact his lobbying career.
"He said, 'The White House made it very clear I have to run,'" explains Foley's friend, adding that Foley told him that the White House promised that if Foley served for two more years it would "enhance his success" as a lobbyist. "I said, 'I thought you wanted out of this?' And he said, 'I do, but they're scared of losing the House and the thought of two years of Congressional hearings, so I have two more years of duty.'"GOI: Sounds like Terdblossom. They didn't want Foley near Bush but they wanted him to stay as a rubber stamp in Congress for Bush. They surely knew about his "secret" and so it looks to me like they black-mailed him (in addition to the lobbying threat) by saying they'd cover-up his dirtly lil' affairs if he played ball to keep them in power and thus out of investigations. Power is the only thing that they care about and it's obvious now (just look at the Foley cover-up) that they are willing to do anything to keep it. They know that they have a lot of dirty laundry that they want to keep in the dark and are thus deperate and desperate people do dangerous things.
