TALLAHASSEE -- Then-U.S. Rep. Mark Foley complained in an e-mail to Gov. Jeb Bush in 2004 that he was being ignored by President Bush on his trips to Florida after several hurricanes.

Foley resigned his congressional seat last month after his sexually explicit instant messages to former male pages became public. Before then, the Republican had maintained a regular dialogue with the Florida governor on a number of issues, mostly inconsequential, by e-mail.

But in one, he wanted the governor to intercede with his brother on some perceived slights. Foley complained that U.S. Rep. Adam Putnam accompanied President Bush on a visit into Putnam's central Florida congressional district and noted that state Rep. Joe Negron was on another trip.

``I can't quite figure what I have done, but this is a continuing pattern of slights,'' Foley complained in a Sept. 29, 2004, e-mail to the governor.

``Sorry to trouble you ... and I wouldn't if this wasn't so frequent,'' Foley wrote. ``Have I done something to offend the White House? I am always getting the shaft.''

6. it makes me think that the WH knew he might be a problem and was
trying to keep their distance. If so, the question is what did the WH know and when?
