A Republican staff member warned Congressional pages five years ago to watch out for Congressman Mark Foley, according to a former page.When this story was first breaking there were rumors of the pages being warned about Congressman Foley. Now we find out that his peccadillos were well known for five freaking years. And what did the GOP leadership do about it? (queue crickets)
Matthew Loraditch, a page in the 2001-2002 class, told ABC News he and other pages were warned about Foley by a supervisor in the House Clerk's office.
Loraditch, the president of the Page Alumni Association, said the pages were told "don't get too wrapped up in him being too nice to you and all that kind of stuff."
