Can Teddy bring Mary Jo

Does "Can Teddy bring Mary Jo" refer to "Can Teddy bring Mary Jo (for Foley)"?

I don't understand the word "for" here. Does it mean "for the purpose of the success of Foley's party"? Just a guess.

Thanks in anticipation.

@oristarA,
The names being listed in the quoted post, as well as the ones just prior, are of various men involved in sex scandals of one sort or another.

Teddy, would be the late Senator Edward Kennedy, known as Ted. He was involved in 1969 in a scandal connected to the E bath by drowning of Mary Jo Kopechne.

Jim Jordan is the person to supply a date for Foley and it is being asked if Kennedy can bring Mary Jo for himself. (Foley designed from Congress in 2006 after improper conduct with some male pages)


It's a rather morbid sort of humor.

"Bring a date for Foley" means bring someone for Foley to have a romantic date with.
