Hastert "Took Care Of" Foley's Pageboy Problem

Denny, Denny, Denny...

From Talking Points Memo:
Majority Leader Boehner hangs Hastert out to dry ...
House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) told The Washington Post last night that he had learned this spring of some "contact" between Foley and a 16-year-old page. Boehner said he told House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.), and that Hastert assured him "we're taking care of it."

It was not immediately clear what actions Hastert took. His spokesman had said earlier that the speaker did not know of the sexually charged e-mails between Foley and the boy.

That's from the Post. See the rest here.

UPDATE October 1 - Tribune: "House Speaker Dennis Hastert's office was alerted in the fall of 2005 that a questionable email exchange had occurred between former Rep. Mark Foley, the Republican member of Congress who resigned Friday, and a teenage page. An internal inquiry was made, and closed."

It's past time for someone other than Denny Hastert to be in charge of the House of Representatives.
