Bring the House Back in Session

Demand Accountability for PredatorGate The Foley scandal has made it clear that the House cannot police itself. We call on Speaker Hastert to bring the US House of Representatives back into session now to:

# Create an independent commission to police House ethics.
# Hold a public hearing to make disclose all information about the handling of the Foley case.

Common Cause Bring the House Back in Session

Hastert, J. (Republican) - Speaker of the House , Congressional District 14 , IL

Your Federal Representative(s)

I join with Common Cause in calling on House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) to bring the House of Representatives back to Washington, DC before Election Day to:

* Hold a public hearing to disclose all information in their possession about the handling of sexually explicit e-mails by former Rep. Mark Foley to former and current House pages.

* To establish an outside ethics commission to provide ethics oversight and enforcement of a body that has proven now beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is incapable of policing itself.

Congress in 2005 returned to Washington during its Easter Recess to consider the fate of Terri Schiavo. It should return now to consider the fate of its own ethical standards.

This Congress has displayed progressively worse ethical behavior. There has been bribery, resignations, Members of Congress are in jail. But the apparent cover-up by House leaders of a Member of Congress who was sexually exploiting children is absolute proof that the House is unable and incapable of policing itself, and that the system of peer review must be changed.

The House must reconvene before Election Day because the public has a right to know where every House Member who is up for re-election stands on their willingness to be held accountable.

  • Sorry to burst the democrats bubble (not), but the "boy" Foley emailed was actually 18 at the time. So it looks like democrats have lied to the public once again for sensationalizing against the GOP. This will not sit well with voters.

    On Tuesday ABC news released a high-impact instant message exchange between Foley and, as ABC explained, a young man "under the age of 18."

    But upon reviewing the records, it has been learned the young man was in fact over the age of 18 at the time of the exchange.

    The hot air being deflated from the left sounds like jet engine. Just another red herring hyped up non- story. PIty the libs, they just can't catch a break!

    Dems may come close, but they won't regain power. National security trumps sex allegations in post 9/11 world.

  • Yeah, that's how absolutely the pathetic the Republican'ts have gotten. They can't even argue points anymore, just make shit up. Oh, wait, it's always been like that.

    And I dearly enjoy idiotboy's assertion that it was one instance. Someone was obviously a child left behind.

  • I would be careful about over emphasizing the Foley scandal. His behavior, if reported accurately, is obviously reprehensible, and he should be punished accordingly, but, don't forget, this is a Congress that has stood by while the regime in power has waged illegal aggressive war based on lies and bullying of the Congress and the American people. this administration is responsible for tens of thousands (if not more) unnecessary deaths, and if not stopped, will be responsible for many more.
