Mark Foley's back



PB Post chats up Foley at society gala: "..."I've been sober and happy."Mark_foley


So, why Friday's coming-out party? He didn't say, although I was told by organizers he bought himself a $350 ticket to the fiesta.

When asked about his future, Foley said only that he's trying to sell homes. He renewed his real estate license last year.

"I have a couple of offers on a place," he said. "Keeping my fingers crossed."

How about a long sit-down interview? Not a chance — until the FDLE finishes its investigation. The agency has been studying whether the messages broke state law but is stalled by U.S. House rules on access to Foley's computers.

"Everybody (including Barbara Walters) has been asking," Foley said. "I haven't granted any interviews. I'm waiting until I'm really cleared. I think I should be, but I don't want to upset anyone by talking."
