Forced Out Staffer Issues Statement

Oct 4, 2006 2:05pm

Kirk Fordham today issued the following statement: "I have resigned today from Congressman Tom Reynolds’ office.  It is clear the Democrats are intent on making me a political issue in my boss’s race, and I will not let them do so. I want to clarify a few things: When I sought to help Congressman Foley and his family when his shocking secrets were being revealed, I did so as a friend of my former boss, not as Congressman Reynolds’ Chief of Staff.  I reached out to the Foley family, as any good friend would, because I was worried about their emotional well-being. At the same time, I want it to be perfectly clear that I never attempted to prevent any inquiries or investigation of Foley’s conduct by House officials or any other authorities. Like so many, I feel betrayed by Mark Foley’s indefensible behavior.  Again, I will not allow the Democrats to make me a political issue in my boss’s race, and I will fully cooperate with the ongoing investigation."
