Hastert vs Fordham
Hastert's office responds to Kirk Fordham's assertion that he notified "senior staff at the highest level of the House of Representatives" two years ago of Mark Foley's problem and asked them to do something about it. Here's their response: "That never happened." I note that Fordham did not say he told Hastert personally. It's possible Hastert wasn't warned. But Fordham insists someone very high up was. I guess we'll find out more soon. I also note that Fordham is openly gay. And like every openly gay man I know, seems creeped out by Foley's conduct.
