REP. BROWN-WAITE STATEMENT ON INQUIRY INTO CONGRESSMAN FOLEY’S ACTIONS



Ginny and Blue Star Family Commemorate September 11

 

Washington, D.C., Oct 6 -

"The first I knew of any inappropriate contact between Congressman Mark Foley and any of the congressional pages was on Thursday, September 28, 2006.  On that day, I became aware of the email exchange between Congressman Foley and Congressman Alexander's former page at the same time as the rest of the country.  Even though this email exchange could be perceived to be innocuous in nature, as a Member of Congress who has consistently fought to protect children from predators and who also values the page program, I thought it was incumbent upon me to look further into this matter. 

"Therefore, on Thursday evening, September 28, 2006, I initiated my own inquiry.  I discovered that Congressman Foley had made some pages uncomfortable as well as I learned about the now widely reported incident of when Congressman Foley showed up at the page dorm one night inebriated.  I did not know about these incidents until Thursday night.

"On Friday, September 29, 2006, I discussed what I discovered about Congressman Foley with House GOP leadership.  This is the extent of my knowledge in this case.  I do not want to comment any further since there is now an investigation into the circumstances surrounding these emails and instant messages."
