WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Former Florida congressman Mark Foley, who resigned his House seat in 2006 amid a scandal over his sending of salacious Internet messages to male congressional pages, said Tuesday he has decided not to run for West Palm Beach mayor.

Foley had been publicly weighing a decision to seek the mayor's office. But he announced on his radio show that after talking with his partner and family, he had decided it was "not the right time to re-enter public life."

A Republican, Foley was considered a political pariah after the page scandal broke before the 2006 election. His seat was won by a Democrat. Foley later checked himself into an Arizona facility for what his attorneys said was treatment of "alcoholism and other behavioral problems." Foley has been hosting a radio show and running a consignment shop.
