Probe widens in Foley case; FDLE to look into Fla. angle
MIAMI (CNN) -- The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) confirmed Monday it was launching its own investigation into allegations that former congressman Mark Foley sent inappropriate emails to teenage congressional pages.

FDLE spokesman Tom Berlinger told CNN's Susan Candiotti that the agency on Sunday contacted the FBI -- which is looking into whether any federal laws were broken in the matter -- to inform the federal bureau of its investigation.

Part of the state investigation will probe whether any of Foley's alleged communications originated in Florida.
