AP: House Page Panel Discusses Kolbe Page Trip

Yesterday, Rep. Dale Kildee (D-MI) revealed that the House Page Board had discussed allegations of improper behavior toward pages by a second lawmaker.

It’s Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-AZ), the AP reports. More:

Overseers of the House page program this week discussed a camping trip that Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz. took with two former pages and others in 1996 — an outing now under review by the Justice Department, a congressional source said Tuesday.

The House Page Board, consisting of three lawmakers and two senior House officials, did not have any new information beyond recent news stories on the Kolbe trip. The source is familiar with the discussions but is not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Last week, NBC reported that the FBI had started a “preliminary assessment” of the trip.
