Fordham vs Fordham
"I was still pretty shell shocked myself," Fordham said of the day he learned about the messages. "This was someone I had worked for 10 years. I had no inkling that this kind of blatantly reckless - just obscene - behavior was going on behind our backs," - Kirk Fordham, former chief of staff to both Tom Reynolds and Mark Foley.
"The fact is, even prior to the existence of the Foley e-mail exchanges, I had more than one conversation with senior staff at the highest level of the House of Representatives asking them to intervene when I was informed of Mr. Foley's inappropriate behavior. One of these staffers is still employed by a senior House Republican leader. Rather than trying to shift the blame on me, those who are employed by these House leaders should acknowledge what they know about their action or inaction in response to the information they knew about Mr. Foley prior to 2005," - Kirk Fordham, former chief of staff to both Tom Reynolds and Mark Foley.
