Foley e-mails were seen as either “friendly,” “overly friendly,” “solicitous,”and “maybe about ready to start stalking somebody”

In the continuing debate over who knew what and when in the unfolding Congressional page scandal, House Leader Dennis Hastert has revealed for the first time why it took so long for certain e-mails to reach top leaders who intend to provide oversight.  “Some were classified as friendly, and some as ‘overly friendly,’ and those, we took action on, which was a little like ‘a warning.’  But still, we have a whole host of other categories.  No one managed to alter me to some of Mr. Foley’s communications we felt to be “more than friendly,’ ‘solicitous,’ or ‘so friendly, one might consider stalking the intended recipient.’  No, me and my staff saw none of these particular e-mails, and I wish the news, the government, and my friends would stop saying that we did.  Jesus, for Christ’s sake, are there Democrats everywhere these days?”  

 Some others were reportedly categorized as “so friendly that the guy belongs on the neighborhood watch list,” and Hastert also denies having caught a glimpse of or hearing about these particular e-mails or instant messages.
