Jordan Edmund. Instant messager of Mark Foley from a co-worker
me | 10/5/06 | me

Posted on 10/05/2006 1:26:28 PM PDT by pulaskibush

I worked in the Istook Campaign in Oklahoma City. One of my co-workers was Jordan Edmund. I actually didn't get to know him all that well, but everything I saw and heard about him indicated that he was not gay. He basically behaved like your standard frat boy. His facebook account no longer exist. If he was part of some prank, I didn't know about it. Jordan came from CA long before I arrived and was there when I left. Jordan was a hard worker and didn't loose his temper or anything like that. He mainly talked about Berkley and seemed to be easy going. He does seem like the kind of guy that would pull a prank.

I have no beef with him or the Istook Campaign. I believe that Istook would be a much better Governor than Brad Henry, especially on the issue of illegal immigration. Henry signed an in-state tuition for illegals law while Istook has been fighting against illegal immigration as a Congressman. That is why I went to work for him.

Perhaps you should have listened closely to what he said about "Berkley."

This post appears contrived to CYA, in my opinion.

That a bill granting illegals in-state tuition even reached the governor's desk is a sign that Henry isn't the only problem. Still, it'd be great if he lost.

You can't always tell if someone is gay just by looking at them. I've been very surprised in that past. You admit you didn't know him well. I guess that would explain why he didn't tell you about the prank. I'm sure it's not something that he advertised.

I posted last night the following:

Will Brian Ross apologize for failing to double check his facts?

Jordan Edmond, now 21 was an adult when he IM'd Rep. Foley in ABC's story of Tuesday.

Consenting adults caught in lewd and lurid chat?

If 18 and consenting, will this Capital Hill staffer be in trouble?

http://mparent7777.livejournal.com/13068549.html

Will Brain Ross explain how he obtained private and privileged communications?

Why smear any young person, Gay or not?

And, why would Jordan now have to hire a Criminal Attorney???

The FBI is investigating. Doesn't mean anyone is "guilty" or not, it's easy to get tripped up by the Feds.

He basically behaved like your standard frat boy.

A frat prank gone bad. A sniggering 18 year old frat boy enticed a booze-soaked middle-aged gay man into sending pathetic and salacious lustful IMs so the whole frat boy crew could laugh themselves sick.

And the MSM and Democrats cynically manipulated and refashioned the prank into the myth of the cherubic prepubescent 12 year old page preyed upon by a cunning and powerful Republican pedophile.

I don't know anything of Mr. Edmund, but this ripping on him for having attended UC Berkeley, one of the most notable and prestigious public Universities in the nation, is misplaced.

UC Berkeley is a haven for leftists. So are Harvard, Yale, University of Wisconsin, University of Kansas in Lawrence, Brown, Columbia, etc. UC Berkeley also has many moderates and Conservatives among the student body.

Yeah, we all know that UC Berkeley isn't Baylor or Liberty University. But attendance at UC Berkeley alone does not make one a surefire liberal "gay-mafia" conspirator any more than attending most major top-100 Universities in the USA.

FWIW, I did not attend UC Berkeley, and I find the area around the school to be decidedly unpleaseant. I really have no affinity for UCB, but find this particular argument to be missing the point about the liberal state of college education in our country.

His MySpace page certainly gave the impression that he was a jerk...and not very bright given what he posted there.

But I think now they're trying to turn it into the case of the evil, gaybashing young conservatives who were getting their jollies making fun of a gay man.

From the Drudge post, it appears that others in the campaign who knew Jordan Edmund did know about is 'little prank' - he's toast politically, if not criminally, and so is any one around him.

thank you for posting your observations, and please don't be bothered by the skeptics...thats just what we should do more of, and sometimes we get carried away.

I've had an icky feeling all along about some of these pages not being the victims they're being made out, that they mocked Foley, thought he was wierd, and yucked it up about him for cruel sport. If I'm right, their sexuality would have little or nothing to do with the "games" they might have cooked up, so Jordan's sexuality is irrelevant.

So, Jordan Edmund made the bomb (the IM logs). Did he also throw it (give the IM logs to ABC)? If not, who did?

Well pulaskibush has been since before 9-11 so we might cut him some slack. It not like he singed up today. This is a 21 ye old. Hopefully Edmund wil tell who else could have 'stolen' the IM's to use for political purposes.

Uhhh... doesn't the law say that its the INTENT to entice a person under 18 into a "lewd" act that's the crime... I thought "trolling" for pedophiles was sop for investigators of this type of activity.

Bingo.

Why did Jordan Edmund need to hire a Criminal Attorney?

http://www.newsok.com/article/2951137

Oh look lucky for the Democrats the Ethic’s Committee
Subpoenas will have to wait until AFTER the election.

Hahahaha all the Gays will have to testify about their private sex lives and activities, like Nuremburg for Gay Democrats or jokers wild?

Ouch, can Michael Rogers get a fair trial? Criminal Attorney paid for by the DNC?

http://www.thehill.com/thehill/export/TheHill/News/Frontpage/100506/news3.html

] “North Carolina Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry called on Democratic leaders yesterday to testify under oath about when they knew of former Rep. Mark Foley’s (R-Fla.) Internet communications with a House page.

] Writing to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairman Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.), McHenry questioned whether Democrats had a role in publicizing the e-mails, which broke in the middle of the fall election season creating a furor rarely seen in congressional politics.

] “Is the American public to believe that neither of you nor your staffs nor anyone associated with your staffs had prior knowledge or involvement with the release of Foley’s e-mails and/or explicit instant messages? Is the American public to believe that ABC News stumbled haphazardly on this story without Democratic assistance?” wrote McHenry, a freshman Republican who has emerged as an attack dog for the GOP.

] He asked that Pelosi and Emanuel offer a “yes or no” answer as to whether they would go under oath “to assure the American people that neither you nor your staffs had prior knowledge or involvement — at the strategic or tactical levels — with the release of Foley’s e-mails and/or instant messages.”

This is on page 341 of the Democrat playbook.

This will get so muddled up that in three days no one will kinow which way to turn. Documents will go missing, people will go silent, Democrats will say, "What? I didn't know anything about this."

The trail will go cold. No one will be brought up on charges.

The only thing that people will remember is that Congressman Foley was a pedophile.

There will be no Fitzmas today for the RATS. As a consolation gift they got a fag to retire and Congress will get a Republican congressman who is probably a bit to the right of Foley.

I guess you'd better talk to PhiKap Mom, because she has an entirely different opinion of the kid. He was working as a mole for the Istook campaign during the primary.

There was also a post on her thread that claimed that another page in the same class as Edmonds, considered him to be gay. I think the description was that they knew he was gay within the first ten minutes of meeting him, that he wasn't at all naieve, and enjoyed the whole scene in DC.

Well maybe a physics major at Berkeley, or even an economics major could escape the brain washing, but not a poli sci major. But there is a lot more damning evidence than his being a Berkeley drop out. The rabid gay activist wrote on his blog that he had flown the kid with the IMs out so he could verify everything and have it all ready to go when the time was right. The blogger was bemoaning the fact that he had sent out the other emails and gotten no reaction, but now he had all his ducks in a row and was going to drop it closer to the mid-term election.
