Kolbe river trip with former pages under investigation, press secretary resigns

Rep. Jim Kolbe is under investigation by the Justice Department regarding a 1996 Colorado river rafting trip he took with two 17-year-old former pages (as well as several staffers and National Park Service employees). His press secretary, Korenna Cline, "abruptly resigned" yesterday in order "to pursue another job opportunity."

I hope they aren't making mountain out of a molehill here simply because he is gay. Not all gay men go after 17 year old boys any more than all hetero guys go after 17 year old girls.

Kolbe's knowledge of Foley's transgressions... That is another matter.
