Page self-identifies, to speak with feds

One of the former pages on the receiving end of Foley’s predatory communications has come forward and identified himself, according to CNN.

A former congressional page who was reportedly told in an instant message from former Rep. Mark Foley to “strip down and get relaxed” likely will talk to federal agents investigating the scandal next week, his lawyer said Friday.

Jordan Edmund, now a 21-year-old aide to Rep. Ernest Istook, R-Oklahoma, was among the pages to whom Foley wrote e-mails and allegedly sent lurid instant messages.

…Edmund is one of the former pages referred to in the ABC News report that triggered Foley’s resignation. The network reported that Foley sent sexually explicit instant messages to a page now identified as Edmund, and other pages.

In one message, the user Maf54, whom ABC News identifies as Foley, asked the teen: “You in your boxers, too?”

The teen replied, “Nope, just got home. I had a college interview that went late.”

Well, strip down and get relaxed,” Maf54 wrote back.
