Kirk Fordham And Media Change Story – Move The Goalposts

Published by at 4:51 pm under All General Discussions,Foleygate

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”.

    Oh my, so Foley drinks, sends friendly e-mails, and gets pulled into a frat prank. Yes he is stupid, but maybe that’s all. One is allowed to be gay and have sex even say naughty words.

    But, But, But……..Kathie, only if one is Democrat is:

    “One is allowed to be gay and have sex even say naughty words.”

    Republicans do NOT have the right to privacy.

    Does anyone know if the Border Fence bill got signed? I know yesterday was the deadline and I can’t find any mention anywhere.

    Breaking news go read this article about Trandahl and the gay mafia.
    An important read if factual and not a spin job.

    Wonder how many times the Senate side has had a “conversation” with Uncle Teddy? With some of the idiotic legislation that gets passed, more people than Foley must be drinking on the job

    Some very interesting and shocking information tracked by a freeper regarding foleygate.

    Fordham is also on “The List” with Foley, and is or was a target of Michael Rogers, apparently because he signed on with Martinez who staunchly opposed homosexual marriage.

    Fordham and Trandahl are the two who were aware of both, the 2000 – 2002 complaint from a page to Arizona Congressman Kolbe, and the Louisiana page’s complaint to Alexander. As AJ posted the other day, Trandahl had a copy of the Louisiana page’s e-mail from Foley, presumably copied in Alexander’s office, before he left the House Clerk spot, about the same time the media shopping with the LA story started.
