Pelosi:Statement on Preliminary Investigation on Mark Foley
http://DemocraticLeader.house.gov

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the folllowing Statement today on the news reports that the FBI is opening a preliminary investigation of the sexually explicit e-mails Congressman Mark Foley sent an underage former House Page.

The FBI rightly investigating Congressman Foley reported internet stalking of an underage former House Page. Mr. Foley is outside the reach of the House Ethics Committee, however the required investigation into the cover up of Mr Foley behavior by the Republican Leadership must move forward.

The childern who work as Pages in Congress are members special trust. Statements by the Republican Leadership indicate that they violated this trust when they were made aware of the internet stalking of an underage Page by Mr. Foley and covered it up for six months to a year

Congress must not pass the buck on investigating this cover up. The Childern , their parents, the public , and colleagues must be assured that abhorrent behavior is not tolerated and wil never happen again.

This should be posted soon on her site
