Ex-House clerk raised early alarms about Foley, sources say
From CNN Correspondent Dana Bash

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former House Clerk Jeff Trandahl raised alarms about former Rep. Mark Foley's contacts with congressional pages long before he resigned from the post in 2005, multiple sources said Monday.

In addition, a spokeswoman for an Arizona congressman said a former page warned her bossc about Foley in 2000, resulting in "corrective action" against the now ex-lawmaker.

Trandahl repeatedly raised red flags about Foley's behavior with pages years before Republican leaders confronted Foley about an e-mail he sent to a former page in 2005, several sources familiar with the situation told CNN. The sources said Trandahl took his concerns to Kirk Fordham, then Foley's chief of staff, several times.
