Another page scandal?

Federal prosecutors in Arizona have opened a preliminary investigation of a camping trip Congressman Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., took 10 years ago that included two teenage congressional pages, a Justice Department spokesman told NBC News. NBC News first reported on the camping and rafting trip on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the Justice Department in Washington said that the U.S. attorney in Arizona has started a “preliminary assessment” of the trip, after an unidentified source made allegations about the congressman’s behavior on the expedition.

Remember how the Foley scandal went from inappropriate e-mails to explicit messages? I wonder what inappropriate camping trips will turn into.

Speaking of October surprises, it seems Karl “Disney” Rove is back in the crosshairs of liberal nuts. Maybe South Park was onto something; perhaps Karl Rove is planting Rove conspiracy theorists to be feared?
