From a Reuters story, titled Foley singled out "hot" boys: report:
Another former page said he felt he had to flirt with Foley, who has said he is homosexual and an alcoholic and that he was abused by a priest as a child.
"I didn't want to piss off a member of an institution that I really revered," the former Republican page said."I figured maybe someday I will want to be involved in Congress," the newspaper quoted him as saying. "I didn't want to make an enemy."
