It seems that the earlier warnings about Rep Mark Foley and Pages had nothing to do about salacious emails or IMs, had nothing to do with concerns about sexual predation by Foley on the Pages, had nothing to do about sex. They were about being DRUNK!
The source said Fordham was to say he notified Scott Palmer, Hastert’s chief of staff, three or four years ago about a report that Foley had shown up drunk at the dormitory that houses the teenage messengers.
Emphasis mine. Notice how CNN has to add in their 20/20 hindsight spotter’s scope by getting the word ‘messengers’ into the sentence. Of course the event, if it happened, had nothing to do with IMs and emails. In fact, it would be hard to make this about anything but a drunk congressman. It is only in the light of all we have learned about Foley that we can even sense a tenuous connection. The BDS driven media sees conspiracies and corruption everywhere, so they don’t even need a connection most times! But this is just plain dumb. It seems to me Fordham re-assessed his position when having to go under oath, so he cleaned up his claim – making it pointless. It is about as relevant as saying “Foley smiled at a page”.
