Foley scandal explodes

Republicans have a huge problem on their hands:
National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Reynolds (N.Y.) issued a statement Saturday in which he said that he had informed Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) of allegations of improper contacts between then-Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) and at least one former male page, contradicting earlier statements from Hastert.
Republicans are corrupt and imploding, but we cannot expect to become the majority party by idly standing by. Democrats must press forward - hard - and put Republicans on the defensive. This is the year to end the GOP control of the House and Senate and restore common sense to Congress.
