Hastert Backs Out of Pa. Fundraiser
House Speaker Dennis Hastert, another Republican back out
of fundraiser for Pa. congressman

WASHINGTON, Oct. 10, 2006
By KIMBERLY HEFLING Associated Press Writer

(AP) 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.


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.

Pressure from Sherwood's Democratic opponent was a factor in the
decision by Reynolds, the head of the National Republican
Congressional Committee, not to appear at an event Thursday
with Sherwood, O'Donnell said. A Republican campaign spokesman
disputed that assertion and cited other events as the reason.
