Foleygate Update

FOLEYGATE UPDATE….From Mark Kleiman:

Tucker Carlson and Dana Milbank have both reported rumors that a third page scandal is coming, this one involving a Congressman and a 16-year-old girl.

From CNN:

Former House Clerk Jeff Trandahl repeatedly raised red flags about former Rep. Mark Foley years before GOP leaders said they knew about Foley’s inappropriate conduct with pages, sources said.

….A friend, Craig Shniderman, told CNN that if Trandahl was aware of something improper, he would have reported it. “Jeff is a guy who always does the right thing,” Shniderman said. “He lives by the truth. He lives by one truth. He’s not a man that tells different stories to different people.”
