Foley Comes Out; Gays Do Not Celebrate

Commentator Marc Acito says that when Rep. Mark Foley's attorney announced that Foley is gay, it wasn't a great moment for gay people.

Like former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey, Foley is trying to make the issue his sexuality. Instead, the issue should be his conduct, Acito says.

Marc Acito's column is syndicated in many newspapers; he is also the author of the novel How I Paid for College.
