ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Jim Kolbe, Arizona's openly gay Republican representative in the U.S. Congress, who denied reports that he confronted then Representative Mark Foley (R-Florida) about inappropriate electronic mails sent to a former congressional page in 2000. Kolbe recommended that a complaint be passed along to Foley's office and to Karen Haas, the clerk of the House. A source said that the messages shared with Kolbe were sexually explicit.
