Congressional pages involved in the Foley sex messages scandal are receiving threats via emails, Representative Rodney Alexander (R-LA) told CNN today. Alexander sponsored one of the pages that received inappropriate instant messages from Rep. Foley.

Alexander explains that he believes he let the page down, saying, "My job was to do what I could do to protect the young man's interest and I failed. I apologize for that. The parents have had a horrible week. The young man is beginning to get some threats. The media has been aggressively seeking his conversation at school, his home and that's the most disturbing thing. It's just simply not fair. The young man has gotten caught up in something that -- and he's getting bruised -- for something that he should not be a part of."
