In the words of Malcom X: The Chickens have come home to roost
Hastert Backs Out of Pa. Fundraiser

WASHINGTON -- House Speaker Dennis Hastert and another Republican leader criticized for his role in the congressional page scandal will not be appearing at fundraisers on behalf of a Pennsylvania congressman who has admitted to an extramarital affair.

Democrats have accused Hastert, R-Ill., and Rep. Tom Reynolds, R-N.Y., of doing too little to protect teenage male pages from Rep. Mark Foley. The Florida Republican resigned Sept. 29 after the disclosure of inappropriate electronic messages to a former congressional page.


Rep. Don Sherwood, R-Pa., had been considered to have a safe seat for re-election until a woman filed suit against him and alleged that he had choked her during an altercation at his Capitol Hill apartment. Sherwood admitted to having an affair with the woman but denied hurting her. They settled the case out of court.

Jake O'Donnell, a spokesman for Sherwood, said Monday that an Oct. 18 event with Hastert was only tentatively scheduled and was canceled mostly because Sherwood had another major event the next day.

1. you know, CatWoman
They KNOW they are corrupt horrific humans with no souls, exploiting without conscience whomever comes into their paths. Feeling invincible for so long, they have no back up plan and now it is indeed chickens (running with no heads)

4. choke
Hmmmm, let's see. One's in trouble for permitting a representative to prey on chickens, and the other's in trouble for choking his mistress. Maybe they both should have just stayed home and choked their chickens.
