From Congress to Consignment

Four years after resigning from Congress amid a scandal involving former House pages, former Florida Republican Rep. Mark Foley is hawking second-hand items and valuables from a Florida storefront -- including items that once adorned his home in Washington, D.C. Have a look at some of the highly coveted items on sale.

    "I've always been an entrepreneur," said former Rep. Mark Foley of his new business venture -- a consignment shop -- that he opened five weeks ago along a strip of highway in West Palm Beach, Fla.
