GOP Lawmakers Seek to Defend Hastert


By HOPE YEN
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rank-and-file Republicans on Sunday sought to mount a public defense of Speaker Dennis Hastert over the page sex scandal that threatens their congressional control one month before the elections.

But a House GOP leader under fire for his handling of the scandal involving former Rep. Mark Foley canceled a national broadcast appearance and one Republican lawmaker said those who participated in a cover-up would have to resign.

"Anybody that hindered this in any kind of way, tried to step in the way of hiding this, covering it up, is going to have to step down. Whoever that is," said Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va.

4. Defending Speaker Dennis Bastert is like accepting pediphilia
It's undefendable. GOP can't even come up with a good spin. They're blaming the Democrats for exposing this mess. I don't see how. If democrats were endangering young people, wouldn't the republicans be doing that also by not further investigating the emails? Reynolds knew. Fat Dennis Bastert knew. Shamkus knew. The democrats knew nothing.
