Congress to Investigate Members over Role in Foley Scandal

Hosted by

Republican leaders in Congress are still reeling from inappropriate messages sent by former member Mark Foley to underage boys. The House Ethics Committee today established a subcommittee to investigate the conduct of House members and staff in that matter. Doc Hastings (R-WA) and Howard Berman (D-CA) will serve as co-chairs. House Speaker Dennis Hastert told the Chicago Tribune last night he would not resign, but then called a news conference for this afternoon.
