Fordham: "I slept very well last night...and I am going to tell the truth"

http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/10/12/foley.fallout/in...

<snip>

"I slept very well last night. I had a good night's sleep," Fordham told reporters outside his Washington home. "I talked to my family, and I am going to tell the truth."

The source said Fordham was to say he notified Scott Palmer, Hastert's chief of staff, three or four years ago about a report that Foley had shown up drunk at the dormitory that houses the teenage messengers. (Watch how the scandal has affected Foley's district -- 1:23 )

Two sources familiar with Fordham's account said that Fordham maintains he arranged a meeting between Foley and Palmer about that report and accounts of other behavior he found troubling.

2. Amazing - I'm glad
he's sticking to his story. How many others are out there that do not sleep well? Or perhaps they do, they just don't have a soul.

8. All that's missing is "This time..." before that sentence.

5. If sleeping well fosters people telling the truth, ....

7. Unfortunately it's the other way around - telling the truth fosters
good nights' sleeps. There must be a lot of insomniacs in DC these days.
