Congressional aide says he told speaker's office about Foley's conduct 2 years ago

A senior congressional aide said Wednesday that he alerted the office of the Republican leader of the House of Representatives two years ago about worrisome conduct by former Rep. Mark Foley with teenage pages.
Kirk Fordham told The Associated Press that when he was told about Foley's inappropriate behavior toward pages, he had "more than one conversation with senior staff at the highest level of the House of Representatives asking them to intervene," alluding to the office of Speaker Dennis Hastert.
The conversations took place long before the e-mail scandal broke, Fordham said, and at least a year earlier than members of the House Republican leadership have acknowledged.
