Hastert Knew While Foley Flew

Captain Ed is mad at Hastert because he appeared to lie about knowing whether he knew about Foley. I can't blame him, this stinks. Why they tried to cover up this is more than wrong it is rotten. This just goes to show that politics tends to be a corrupt occupation (yes, there are good politicians). Hastert needs to resign his speakership, and this whole scandal needs to be dealt with quickly and harshly. This rot musn't be allowed to fester.

Roll Call reports that Thomas Reynolds (R-NY), the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, told Hastert about Foley's predatory actions in late winter or early spring of this year: Read More.
