Dec 5, 2006 3:21pm

Congressman Jim Kolbe (R-Ariz.) appeared before the House Ethics Committee in late November, sources with knowledge of the investigation told ABC News. Kolbe is believed to have testified that sometime in early 2000, a congressional page from Kolbe’s home district of Arizona, asked for help from Kolbe in dealing with inappropriate e-mail contact from then-Congressman Mark Foley. Kolbe passed the complaint to Foley’s office and the clerk of the House at the time and assumed the matter was resolved, a spokeswoman for Kolbe’s office told ABC News.
