As Suspected ...

ABC News' Brian Ross, who broke the Foley story, tells the Wall Street Journal that his tipster was a "Capitol Hill source." I'm telling you, these e-mails were being passed around like cupcakes and bribes in D.C. It seems more and more apparent, however, that the source didn't trust the Palm Beach Post or the Sun-Sentinel D.C. bureaus enough to even give those newspapers a crack at it.

Interestingly, Ross is also having to combat allegations from House Speaker Dennis Hastert (yeah, he's still in the position) that this was all part of an evil Democratic Party plot. That sounds incredibly familiar, considering Foley said the same thing about my 2003 story about him, blaming it on evil Democratic "operatives." What bunk.
