    The source who in July gave news media Rep. Mark Foley’s (R-Fla.) suspect e-mails to a former House page says the documents came to him from a House GOP aide.

    That aide has been a registered Republican since becoming eligible to vote, said the source, who showed The Hill public records supporting his claim.

    The same source, who acted as an intermediary between the aide-turned-whistleblower and several news outlets, says the person who shared the documents is no longer employed in the House.

    But the whistleblower was a paid GOP staffer when the documents were first given to the media.
