Hastert Tries Finger-Pointing
Think Progress says House Speaker Denny Hastert is now trying to blame others for the Mark Foley mess. From the news conference today,
QUESTION: How satisfied are you with how your staff handled the scandal so far and whether anyone resign in your office?
HASTERT: I understood what my staff told me, and I think from that response, they've handled it as well as they should. However, in 20/20 hindsight, probably you could do everything a little bit better. If there is a problem, if there was a cover up, then we should find that out through the investigation process. They'll be under oath and we'll find out. If they did cover something up, they should not continue to have their jobs. But I -- but I didn't think anybody at any time in my office did anything wrong. I found out about these revelations last Friday. That was the first information I had about it.
