Former Foley aide to testify Thursday

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Mark Foley's former chief of staff, who says he warned the House speaker's staff three years ago of inappropriate Foley conduct toward pages, is to testify Thursday before the House ethics committee.

Kirk Fordham will insist that he warned Speaker Dennis Hastert's chief of staff about the conduct in 2003 or possibly the previous year, Fordham lawyer Timothy Heaphy said.

Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Kolbe of Arizona said a former page he had sponsored contacted his office to complain of e-mails from Foley, the Florida Republican who has resigned. Kolbe said he ``passed along'' the complaint to Foley and to then-House Clerk Jeff Trandahl.

Trandahl's lawyer, Cono Namorato, said Trandahl ``will cooperate fully with the FBI and the House ethics committee investigations.''
