He's already contradicted himself once today, in two separate interviews ("I was shocked" vs. holding the IMs for three years) - he's Bus Bait.
Unless this goes to a Grand Jury, which I don't think anyone wants.
To: PhiKapMom [from post #305 above]: "One of his Frat brothers from Berkley called the Passionate America Show and confirmed that Jordan showed these emails as proof that he had "dirt" on a Congressman. He has been described as power hungry and craving influence."
jig is up.
Agreed, but Hastert should not have to walk the plank.
Somebody needs to screencap or cache this or whatever needs to be done to preserve the story as it "develops."
What was I thinking? It's always darkest before the dawn!
check post 952 for more info.
LOL! I know! Libs always get caught in their own Karma.. don't they? It's just priceless!
I feel sorry for the speaker
"Well then, by all means, let's get Foley back in the race! I mean he waited until the kid was 18, so no problem."
Agreed. And just like Tom Delay, the Dims have made sure that his name cannot be withdrawn from the ballots, so Foley should go ahead and run. After all the Dims have their own admitted gay in the House, we Pubbies should have one also just to be fair to our constituents.
I could e wrong but I don't think ABC/Ross has said where they came from yet
That's right....Charlie Gibson, head of the news division at ABC. Has he been hawking this sh*t on his broadcast?
I love your colloquialism. I had not heard that one before but it fits this situation perfectly. Thank you Algore for the internet. LOL!
"Radical Gay Rights Activists held on to information about Representative Foley for months and years. These "Rights Activists" knew that representative Foley had relationships with "young men less than half his age." They did their own investigation on Foley. They even flew in their sources in to be interviewed about the Representative. They shared this information with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. They held on to the information for over a year. They wrote about how they would break the story at midterm elections.
......so where did these "Rights Activists" get funding for so long and complete with airline tickets....?
....are they connected with scientologists as its reported that F is in with them (no pun intended).
Gary Hart changed his mind, IIRC.
I don't know, but it's fishy. I sure can't see a kid like this actually being enamored with Istook's stated politics.
Someone upthread found a link that showed that Jordan had worked with someone who went to work for Istook. Maybe that person brought him on board. But surely that person knew something about Jordan's personal life? Maybe even a lot about his personal life?
17 year olds would be more patient with such a game and this was roughly 10 years ago It was a different Internet then and not that many warnings were out there. People were still using Windows 95 because 98 wasn't even on the market. It was a 17 year old kid at the time. Maybe he thought a friend was playing games etc. According to the interview the converattions started out innocent enough so it seems and did not seem a threat at first. I will say this much the boy would have to have been recommended for the duty by an old name Conservative Republican second generation. He did mention his name on TV though and his hometown it is south east.
Savage is a flappin' magpie..
"21 - 3 = 18"
bnelson44 would be deeply saddened if that could be proven true.
Comments like these are uncalled for.
No info on that that I'm aware of, but PhiKapMom knows this kid and said he was known to have shown these IM's to people and to brag that he had "dirt" on a Congressman.
Once the bragging starts, someone will get hold of the info, recognize its political value and act accordingly.
If he was unaware of the IM's I agree. If he was aware bye bye Denny.
At least Paul Weyerick recanted on his call for the speaker to step down. Now, we need the other fair weathered Republicans who did call for Hastert to step down, to step up, appologize to Hastert and close ranks. We have the goods of the left. We need to go on the offense and attack. Take no prisoners. ABC has to be exposed as does the left and I strongly suspect the DNC, and the democrat leadership.
What level of sarc is that, 2 or 3?
Where did you see this interview?
If the person was about 26 now, when did the contact with Foley take place and when was he a page?
You aren't getting it are you? If the recipient of the IMs was 18, as we now believe, than there is NO CRIME. Get it?
Oh yeah there is no question about that
BTTT. Lots of filthy hands in this whole thing. Just need to string them together.
That trick won't work on me. Check my bookmarks and the dates of some of the threads IOW I'm not a sleeper account. Been here quite a spell actually. Even those who don't like me will tell you that.
Plus it knocked Woodward off the front pages and off the tv shows.
hardy har har!
it was CNN and it was a driveby piece with no documentation.
Unless Jordan released the IM's to them, they're likely to be forced to disclose in court how they got them.
Even if he revealed them to a friend, who then passed them on, ABC by its own actions demonstrated that it believed it had a legal obligation to protect his identity. It's just that they screwed that up for a few minutes---long enough for someone out there in cyberland to get a screencap of their mistake.
I missed it. This is a loooong thread. I'll check your posts. :)
Maybe this 18 old man and former page was hitting on Foley.
Its not in this thread i said when this first started
I quibble with your assertion that "public perception means everything."
Rovian Politics 101 proves that "the perception of your base means everything."
This will fire up the base big-time, much to the Rats' amazement. On top of ole Bubba and the Hildabeast acting crazy and flinging whoppers last week, I say: Rove, you magnificant dog, you.
Was this Jordan person trying to set Foley up? Or was he...um...agreeing to the attention?
Either way, the point that is never made adequately in this reporting of Foley as predator, is that IMing is two-way communication. Foley is terminally stupid to engage in this kind of behavior, but any recipient of his IMs that did not want to continue the "chat" would simply not have continued to respond.
Not that I'm aware of. I was referencing what he "said" in the IM's.
On tv I watched it twice. Normally on a station and show I never watch but my wife caught it. He was a congressional page 1996-97 and was 16-17 years old. The contact took place in I would guess 1997 2-3 months after his term as page was up and he returned home.
Yeah, for FR it ought to say "hugh manatee," but I didn't make it. :)
Brief synopsis then, please. I don't know what you're talking about regarding this situation.
