GOP rep: Leadership candidates better not have skeletons in closet

Is he referring to someone specific? Perhaps Steve Scalise and his White Supremacist ties, or the long-rumored-about affair between Kevin "Wordsmith" McCarthy and Renee Elmers? (both are married to other people)
.......

North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones (R) sent a letter to the No. 4 House Republican saying any candidate for leadership who has committed any "misdeeds" since joining Congress should "withdraw" from the contest.

Jones, a 20-year veteran of Washington, is referring to marital infidelity, and made reference to former Rep. Bob Livingston (R-La.), who stepped down due to an affair before he was slated to become speaker, and Newt Gingrich.

...
Jones, in an interview with POLITICO Wednesday morning, said he is not referring to anyone specific. He said he doesn't want any misstep to "destroy our conference." Jones made reference to revelations that surfaced earlier this year that Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) allegedly spoke to a white supremacy group a decade ago.

"My point was not any individual, what it was that in this world we live in today, with you young guys, and the Internet and everything, all the blogs and the papers, I just felt that when I leave at 5 o'clock, no one knows what I do," Jones said. "What I'm trying to say is if anybody running for leadership has after 5 o' clock, had an issue, drinking and driving or playing cards, or anything, then I think that the conference needs to know it."

Brian Williams doing a very good job covering the shooting

He speaks with great measure and a calm slowness. He is not like most other breaking news people, who excitedly ramble loudly and quickly and sound almost entertained, and ask awful questions ("Did you see any blood? Did you see any bodies? Did you expect something like this to happen? Was it scary?"
