Ex-Page's Lawyer: Drudge's "Prank" Story "A Piece of Fiction"

Justin Rood / Muckraker | October 6 2006

Earlier today, the Drudge Report published a story claiming that one batch of lewd IM transcripts published by ABC News were the result of a "prank" by a former House page. The former page, Drudge said, "goaded Foley to type embarrassing comments," which he shared with friends.

The story did not quote the young man, or say whether any attempt had been made to contact him or his lawyer.

Now, the lawyer for the former page in question, 21-year-old Jordan Edmund, says the Drudge Report article is false. Calling the story "a piece of fiction," Stephen Jones told the Daily Oklahoman that "there is not any aspect of this matter that is a practical joke nor should anyone treat it that way."

This afternoon, ABC News published news of three more former pages who had sexual online conversations with Foley similar to Edmund's.
