House members to ask past and present pages of Foley contacts

Sweet Blog Scoop: House members to ask past and present pages of Foley contacts.


October 6, 2006


Re: Investigation of Allegations Related to Improper Conduct Involving Members and Current or Former House Pages

Dear Colleague:

As you may know, an Investigative Subcommittee of the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct (the Committee) has been empanelled to conduct an inquiry regarding any conduct of House Members, officers and staff related to information concerning improper conduct involving Members and current and former House Pages. We are contacting you now in our capacities as Chairman and Ranking Minority Member of that Investigative Subcommittee.

The purpose of this letter is to notify all Members that it is the expectation of the Investigative Subcommittee that any Members with information related to the matter under investigation will bring such information to the attention of the Investigative Subcommittee. Such information should include, but not be limited to, any information related in any way to communications or interactions between former Representative Mark Foley and any current or former participants in the House Page Program. In this regard, you should inquire of staff under your supervision as to relevant information in their possession.

In order to assist the Investigative Subcommittee with its inquiry, we also request that you contact current and former House Pages sponsored by your office for the purpose of learning whether any of those individuals had any inappropriate communications or interactions with former Representative Foley or any other Member of the House. You should advise all Pages contacted that any information gained pursuant to your inquiry will be shared with the Investigative Subcommittee, and will be maintained by the Investigative Subcommittee in a confidential manner consistent with House and Committee rules.



Doc Hastings Howard L. Berman
Chairman Ranking Minority Member

1. Ouch said they all. What a find. Peace to all.
It is so sad we had to have a "sex" scandal, but I'll take it. I would have much rathered John Q Public cared more about other matters, like the shredding of our Constitution, but if this is what it takes then so be it.
