(Newser) – Investigators haven’t turned up enough evidence to indict former Florida congressman Mark Foley on charges he sent salacious emails to underage pages, the AP reports. Both Florida and federal officials have been investigating the charges for two years, but with Congress blocking access to House computers, they've had little success. Foley resigned when the allegations surfaced.
