Both were former pages — the first was a Republican who would "never vote for a Democrat", and the second was a Democrat from the same class as the two pages who received the messages.
On at least two different occasions, one in the summer of 2000 and one in 2002 or 2003, Foley allegedly visited the dormitory where pages live.
A page from the class of 2000 reported he chatted with Foley during the Congressman's 2000 visit to the page dormitory, and afterwards, he began receiving e-mails and IMs from Foley, which became explicit immediately after his 18th birthday. Petersburg Times editors decided the exchange was probably just "friendly chit-chat".
Nonetheless, they assigned two reporters to investigate in November 2005.
Foley observed that another male page (to whom he had also written) was "in really great shape...
i am just finished riding my bike on a 25 mile journey..." The page forwarded the e-mails to a colleague in Alexander's office, saying "this really freaked me out", and repeating the word "sick" 13 times in a row to describe the photo request.
He said that his source "was not working in concert with the national Democratic Party" but was "genuinely disgusted" by Foley's behavior.
The scandal led to Foley's resignation from Congress on September 29, 2006.Another former page reported that he saw sexually explicit e-mails sent to one page from his page class of 2001-2002, and learned of "three or four" pages from that class who received similar e-mails.After the initial story on the e-mails, other pages contacted ABC and The Washington Post, providing transcripts of sexually explicit instant messaging (IM) conversations from 2003 that Foley had with two pages who were under the age of 18 at the time.On the first occasion, he drove up in his BMW automobile during a nighttime "mixer" party.Students came out of the dorm to talk with him and were warned away by an adult supervisor in the page program, who shooed them back inside.
