Republican Party condones sexual abuse of Pages

Josh Marshall of TPM points out that the House Republican Leadership has known about the situation involving Rep. Foley (R-FL) for nearly a year-and-a-half. They actively prevented the single Democratic Rep. on the Page Board from learning about the situation, and treated it as a political problem rather than criminal matter or sexual abuse of children. Josh Makes a real good case against the Republican leaderhship of the House and the entire Republican membership there.

Let's see. So far this year the Republican Party in the House of Representatives has had two members resign and plead guilty to being bribed [Randy "Duke" Cunningham and Bob Ney} and now two others resign with pending legal action [Tom DeLay (House Majority Leader) and now the pedophile Rep. Foley of Florida.]

These are just the ones of have been caught. It seems that Republicans are crooks, liars and thieves before they are politicians. They need to go. Every single Republican in Washington!

The SF Gate has good coverage of how the House Republicans are working to protect their behinds - not from Mark Foley, but from the voters.

Via Billmon, who added
It's becoming increasingly hard to regard these "people" as anything more than cockroaches who for some strange reason have decided to put on suits and ties and go walking around on their hind legs.

We don't need an election. We need the Orkin man. Maybe DeLay could recommend somebody.
