|***Updates at the bottom***|
I called Matthew Loraditch about an hour ago about the Mark Foley scandal
ABCNews has identified Matthew Loraditch as:
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.Ms. Underestimated and I have been researching this story. I spoke with Matthew Loraditch on the phone and he said he was writing a statement about the incident and that he would email me when he had completed his statement.
I have been following the Rep. Mark Foley case and I have uncovered the screen name and first name of the page that Mark Foley supposedly instant messaged. I am still trying to contact this individual and I will hold his name for now. I will have more has the story unfolds. Something does not seem right about the Mark Foley story.
