Kirk Fordham, Foley's former chief of staff and Rep. Tom Reynold's (R-NY) current chief of staff, has resigned "amid questions over whether he suppressed information about Foley emails," according to ABC News.
Earlier this morning, Greg Sargent gave the rundown on the many inconsistencies
in Fordham's account.Update
: Uh-oh. Very interesting story
over at ABC News (where they say Fordham was "fired"):
Fordham, a former chief of staff for Congressman Mark Foley, reportedly urged Republican leaders not to raise questionable Foley e-mails with the full Congressional Page Board, made up of two Republicans and a Democrat.
"He begged them not to tell the page board," said one of the Republican sources.
People familiar with Fordham's side of the story, however, said Fordham was being used as a scapegoat by Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert.
They said Fordham had repeatedly warned Hastert's staff about Foley's "problem" with pages, but little was done.
