Everyone is trying to cover their own butt related to the Mark Foley scandal. Nancy Pelosi and other House Democrats are calling for investigations to see "who knew" about the predatory emails that former Rep. Foley (R-FL) was sending to high school age Congressional pages. I just read that Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert said there was nothing more he could have done and House Majority Leader John Boehner say that he thought the "ball was in (Hastert's) court" concerning the 2005 allegations.
Regardless of who is talking about this situation, be it the media, Republicans or Democrats, NO ONE is mentioning the children. Frankly, I care far less about who knew than I do about these young men who were violated by Mr. Foley. Where is the apology from the House leadership of both parties to these young men and their families? Where is the assurance that this won't happen again? This shines a spotlight on the absolute selfishness of our leaders and highlights their lack of regard for anything but their own personal wellbeing.
The little faith that I had in our elected leaders is quickly dwindling.
