Former U.S. congressman Mark Foley is helping the Washington Nationals find a new spring training site in Florida after multiple other proposals fell through.
Foley, who resigned from Congress in 2006 amid a scandal involving sexually explicit messages to an underage male former page, met with Nationals principal owner Mark Lerner on Thursday.
“It would be great to attract the Nationals,” Palm Beach County Commissioner Hal Valeche told The Washington Post. “It obviously depends on how we could work out the deal out. But having a team from a city like Washington would bring more tourists and they’re a great team and franchise.”
