(Newser) – Ready to feel bad for a disgraced ex-congressman? Mark Foley has prostate cancer, he tells NewsMax. Foley, who now hosts a conservative radio show, revealed that he’ll undergo surgery tomorrow to remove his entire prostate. “Naturally, I have some reservations about the surgery. Nobody wants their plumbing messed with,” he said. “But I feel mostly good about it.”

If all goes well, Foley should be fine, and won’t need radiation treatment. Besides, he quipped, “I made it through 2006. So this is a minor bump in the road.”
