Vindicated at last, Hastert claims. What a joke!

Back on Oct. 2nd I posted the following Blog "Hastert: I Don't recall being informed on the Rep. Foley emails. Ah, yes, the old "I don't recall excuse. If you believe that I have a bridge I want to sell you in Brooklyn!"

Well today the Ethics panel released their findings and according to this report said, " the committee harshly criticized Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., saying the evidence showed he was told of the problem months before he acknowledged learning of Foley's questionable e-mails to a former Louisiana page. It rejected Hastert's contention that he couldn't recall separate warnings from two House Republican leaders.

Hastert said he was pleased the committee found "there was no violation of any House rules by any member or staff."

You see lying is a genetic disease of this Republican Administration. I am hoping it becomes suppressed in the Democrats genetic code as well, or we will have to cull all politicians from the general population, as vaccines against this disease don't work. There was also a lack of accountability by the leadership, including Rep. Boehner, the new minority leader. As I stated on a later posting, "Rep. Boehner knew about the problem, said he notified Speaker Hastert, and then decided to drop the matter from his responsibility, since he had told Hastert. I wonder what he would have done if it were his child that was approached by Rep. Foley and saw the emails. I'll bet he wouldn't have just told Hastert and dropped the matter! What hypocrisy!"

This is a fitting day for the Republican Party's grip on the House of Representatives. Shame, shame, shame on yourselves for not protecting our children in your keep. You deserved to lose power this time and hopefully others will learn from your mistakes. Yes it is a few bad apples that can spoil the bunch and this bunch of scoundrels is no exception.
