CLAIM: FILTHY FOLEY ONLINE MESSAGES WERE PAGE PRANK GONE AWRY
**World Exclusive**
**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 prank scenario only applies to the Edmund IM sessions and does not necessarily apply to any other exchanges between the former congressman and others.

The news come on the heels that Edmund has hired former Timothy McVeigh attorney, Stephen Jones.

I'm sorry. Maybe the lurid ones were fake, but there has to be a reason Foley resigned.

Here's a funny thing. What if Foley resigned because the republicans forced him out? What if he knew they were fake but was made to quit?

Will the story next week be "Homophobic republicans force gay man to quit over fake IMs?"

I had always assumed ABC had found the people who WROTE the IMs, and verified their accuracy.

No apology is due to Mark Foley. The man is dirt. The apology is due to any intern who he actually spent the past year sodomizing while all these Democratic activists sat on the story waiting for the timing factor to kick in.

Oh, bloody brilliant. And ABC News just swallowed it whole, right.

However, the alleged prankster obviously has no responsibility for this. After all, he's just a "kid," a "child." No doubt still in diapers.
