ABC will soon report who had knowledge of the Mark Foley page scandal, and when they became aware of it, RAW STORY has learned.
In an interview with DemocracyNow, ABC's Maddy Sauer has shared some startling facts about the story.
Pages have, according to Sauer, been able to produce instant message conversations going back as far as five years. Some of them are reportedly sexually explicit.
The FBI, Sauer claims, will be interviewing pages starting today.
Sauer also indicated that ABC's next wave of reports on the Foley scandal will focus on who in Congress was aware of the situation, how much they knew, and when they were alerted.
I'll be following developments as closely as possible today. As soon as the news broke, I knew Hastert would not be Republican Leader in 2007, now I doubt that he'll even make it to the end of the year. The Republicans are stabbing each other in the back, front and everywhere else. If ABC reports what I think they're about to report, the House GOP will soon be decapitated.
Today just may be Execution Day for the GOP..
Update [2006-10-3 14:1:2 by RandyMI]:: [ABC Newshttp://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/2006/10/new_foley_insta.html] *has just dropped another shoe on Foley*.
Former Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) interrupted a vote on the floor of the House in 2003 to engage in Internet sex with a high school student who had served as a congressional page, according to new Internet instant messages provided to ABC News by former pages. ABC News now has obtained 52 separate instant message exchanges, which former pages say were sent by Foley, using the screen name Maf54, to two different boys under the age of 18. This message was dated April 2003, at approximately 7 p.m., according to the message time stamp.I'm at work, so I'll let you read the text of the messages yourself.
