Dramatis Personae

By

Steve Gilbert of Sweetness & Light  uncovers a very interesting item from the Washington Blade, a gay newspaper, about Mike Rogers and John Aravosis, who have come under scrutiny elsewhere as possibly involved in the black blog stopsexpredators.com. Rogers had posted about Foley on his own site Blogactive. They let their mouths run a bit to a friendly rag.

Rogers said the outings have picked up steam — from 13 documented offices to nearly 20 currently on a target list provided by Rogers to the Blade.

In addition to Tolman, Rogers and Aravosis, working in tandem but not together, claimed in the last week to have outed via the Web Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland and Republican Congressman Mark Foley of Florida...

Aravosis said he obtained the latest information about the five—term congressman from Foley's former chief of staff, Kirk Fordham.

Steve gathers some other damning evidence,

it seems very probable that one or all of the gentlemen mentioned in this article have had a hand in the recent revelations about Mark Foley.

It is equally likely that one or all of them is behind the anonymous website, StopSexPredators.blogspot.com, that first produced Foley's alleged emails out of the blue.

Michael Rogers started his own website, blogactive.com, back in July of 2004.

Oddly enough, there was a significant drop—off in his activities there after July of this year, which is when StopSexPredators.blogspot.com was begun.

and

in his latest post at Blogactive Michael Rogers shows he has to Mark Foley's IM account.

The FBI is investigating the case. They have the power to put these people under oath. I hope they are already using it.
