The plot thickens according to Drudge:
XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX THU OCT 5 2006 2:53:48 ET XXXXX
CLAIM: FILTHY FOLEY ONLINE MESSAGES WERE PAGE PRANK GONE AWRY
**Must Credit the DRUDGE REPORT**
According to two people close to former congressional page Jordan Edmund,
the now famous lurid AOL Instant Message exchanges that led to the
resignation of Mark Foley were part of an online prank that by mistake got
into the hands of enemy political operatives, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal.
According to one Oklahoma source who knows the former page very well,
Edmund, a conservative Republican, goaded an unwitting Foley to type
embarrassing comments that were then shared with a small group of young Hill
politicos. The prank went awry when the saved IM sessions got into the hands
of political operatives favorable to Democrats.
The primary source, an ally of Edmund, adamantly proclaims that the former
page is not a homosexual. The prank scenario was confirmed by a second
associate of Edmund. Both are fearful that their political careers will be
affected if they are publicly brought into the matter.
The news come on the heels that Edmund has hired former Timothy McVeigh
attorney, Stephen Jones.
