Today’s the day we’ve all been waiting for: Mark Foley’s former employee, Kirk Fordham, will be going before the House Ethics Committee to say, yet again, that he told Speaker Hastert about Foley’s inappropriate behavior with Congressional pages.
A source familiar with his account of events told CNN that Fordham will 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.
Yikes, what would you do if a drunken Mark Foley showed up on your door step? We’d probably just curl up in a ball and cry.
We’re not really sure why the Ethics Committee has to go through all of this – Fordham’s just going to repeat himself, then Hastert will call him a liar and we’ll be no closer to the so-called truth. Oh well, anything to make Congress not look like complete buffoons, right?
