The thing I find interesting about this story is the audience. Who was at that campaign event, and how hard did they have to work at it from their end to be willing to buy the story Boehner was selling? Anyway, from the AP: Majority leader: Democrats endangered pages.
Boehner, speaking at a campaign event for 3rd District Republican candidate Jeff Lamberti, said Democratic operatives have known about inappropriate e-mails sent by former Rep. Mark Foley, a Florida Republican, to young male pages for some time. He said Democrats had been shopping the information around Washington as a political ploy.
“Someone who had this information allowed those 16-year-old pages to be at risk while they were playing their political games,” said Boehner, R-Ohio. “I do not believe thus far that Republicans knew about these sexually explicit instant messages.”
