Foley says he's in treatment for alcoholism
From CNN National Correspondent Susan Candiotti

MIAMI (CNN) -- Former Congressman Mark Foley, who resigned Friday amid
allegations that he sent inappropriate emails to teenage pages on Capitol Hill,
told a Florida television station that he is being treated for alcoholism and
is in a treatment facility, CNN confirmed Monday.

Foley's attorney David Roth said the letter Foley faxed to WPBF in West
Palm Beach, Fla., was legitimate.

The fax was apparently sent from Clearwater, Fla., but Roth would not say
if that's where Foley is being treated.
