As we noted earlier today, Democratic Rep. Dale Kildee revealed Monday that the House Page Board has been discussing allegations of page-related misconduct that had nothing to do with Mark Foley. The Associated Press is now reporting that the focus of that discussion is Rep. Jim Kolbe, an Arizona Republican who is retiring from Congress this year. As has been reported previously, federal officials are looking into allegations that Kolbe engaged in inappropriate conduct during a 1996 trip with a couple of former House pages.
