Reynolds top aide resigns
From CNN Political Editor Mark Preston

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Rep. Tom Reynolds' senior aide resigned Wednesday, the first person to fall in the wake of the Foley page scandal.

"I have resigned today from Congressman Tom Reynolds' office," Kirk Fordham said in a statement released by Reynolds' congressional office. "It is clear the Democrats are intent on making me a political issue in my boss's race, and I will not let them do so."

Before serving as Reynolds chief-of-staff, Fordham served as Rep. Mark Foley's top aide. When news first broke last week that Foley had e-mail and instant message conversations with House pages, Fordham provided private advice to him.
