Jordan Edmund

Oklahoman reports some facts not previously known.

Jordan Edmund met with attorney Stephen Jones on Wednesday.  [Presumably to retain the lawyer at that time?]

Attorney Jones contributed $5,000 to the Istook [Rep. Ernest Istook, Republican] campaign.

Edmund described himself on as "deputy campaign manager for Istook."     And described himself as a U.S. House page from September 2001 to June 2002.  "He said he is straight."

Istook reportedly urged him "to cooperate fully with law enforcement" and the House Ethics Committee." and is quoted as saying "This is a young man who is bright and hardworking. He does not deserve the public embarrassment that he now faces. .. [ellipse theirs] What he needs and deserves is Christian compassion."   [Compassion for what?]

Jones claims "Jordan was a minor when the alleged events described in the media occurred." [What events?   The media-described (St. Petersburg Times, Miami Herald) "innocuous" e-mails? or?]

Why would the former page need a lawyer?   People usually need lawyers to seek damages, but Jones is a criminal attorney.
