IM Page Outed Now

Published by at 3:16 pm under All General Discussions,Foleygate

The blog Passionate America (what an oxymoron for a title) has decided to ‘out’ a young man who did nothing wrong, and whose parents did not want him exposed, simply because he was the one to IM with Rep Foley. The exploitation of these victims continues. Personal pleasure for Foley, partisan gain for the Democrats and personal fame for journalists and bloggers. And nothing happens to any of them. Why name someone when it is the sequence of events everyone is concerned about. But they do it anyway. The post shows some good investigative skills. More on this later if there is anything of actual value in the post.

Update: Some interesting facts. The Page identified by this site was not in Page program when the offensive IMs took place. So that rules out internet sex with a Page. He was a Page alumni, not that it makes a big deal except he may have been a consenting adult. Second, this young man works for a Rep candidate for Governor in Oklahoma – so he seems to be supportive of conservatives and unlikely to be out to get someone like Foley for political reasons (there of course could be other reasons).

One thing is for sure. While I am not impressed with exposing a possible victim, the threats on the comments section for this post are ugly and inexcusable.

Update: Raw Story points out the obvious fact that the person Passionate American identified (from ABC’s website) cannot be the one who exchanged emails last year – the ages are clearly wrong. The IM messages is where, I believe, Passionate American was pointing to. Raw Story does confirm ABC News has documents as far back as five years. BTW, Mike Rogers used to blog for Raw Story back in 2004 running the page RawStoryQ.

  1. The Foley Scandal Redux…

    MAJOR UPDATE 1320hrs PST
    An excellent job done by Wild Bill at Passionate America in discovering who the IM’s were sent to, one Jordon Edmund who appears to have been 18 at the time of the IM’s, here is his bio on MySpace:
    2003 to Present

    AJ: I said it on Rick Moran’s website last week when this story first broke, and I got castigated for it, but don’t care!

    I’ll say it again: the lastest headlines on CNN now indicate that Hastert and other Republican leaders knew about this over 2 years ago!

    So, I’ll make my point again: WRONGLY, the Repulican leadership knew about it, and ignored it, because they didn’t want to be seen as “homophobic”, and didn’t want to drive a “gay” Repubican out of the party, because of those type charges would’ve been leveled at them immediately by the Left.

    Look at what the posters are putting over at Wild Bill’s site, becauses he just supposedly “outted” the Page!

    And there is not apparrent Hypocrasy in their stance.

    And as for the Republican leadership, WRONG call, for the WRONG PC reason, and now it’s biting them in the ass!

    And frankly, they deserve it, because they fell for the PC BS!

    I think I have mentioned a few times that the IMs were not with a kid.

    And as for them knowing, what do you want them to do? If there is no crime then the whole thing might have fallen into a gray area. Don’t you think that a lot of people knew Bill was not to be trusted with women?
