    I saw the executive director of CREW, Melanie Sloan, on C-SPAN yesterday
    and was very impressed.

    CREW stands for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and
    is a non-profit legal watchdog group dedicated to holding public
    officials accountable for their actions.

    My guess would be that it was Attorney General Alberto Gonzales who
    prevented the FBI from opening an investigation into Mark Foley’s
    e-mails.

    In fact, I would say that is a “slam dunk.”

    Now that REPUBLICAN House Speaker Denny Hastert has been caught with his
    pants down, he is “urging” the FBI to “begin” an investigation into the
    Foley e-mails.

    Way to go, Denny … important to cover your butt now that the whole
    world knows the Republicans would rather protect a Republican sexual
    predator’s Florida House seat than protect the House pages from that
    sexual predator.

    I tell you, folks, anyone who votes for any Republican to the senate or
    House will have to answer to God for doing that.

    The Republican party, the Party of Lincoln, has become the party of
    liars, cheats, sexual predators, adulterers, “religious” freaks,
    racists, sleaze and corruption.

    Administration Officials Must Explain Lack of Action

    Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington
    October 2, 2006

    Washington, DC — Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in
    Washington (CREW) wrote to the Department of Justice Inspector General’s
    office today to ask for an INVESTIGATION into WHY the Federal Bureau
    of Investigation (FBI) FAILED to begin investigating Rep. Mark Foley’s
    emails to a former House page as soon as the Bureau learned about the
    emails in JULY 2006.

    On July 21, 2006 CREW received a set of emails, allegedly from Rep.
    Foley to a former House page, which it sent to the FBI later that day.
    The emails, posted at http://www.citizensforethics.org, asked the page, who had
    recently left the Hill, his age, how school was going and what he wanted
    for his birthday. Rep. Foley also requested the boy’s photograph.

    “As a former prosecutor who handled sex crimes in the District of
    Columbia, the emails set off alarm bells. Grown men simply do not send
    emails requesting photographs to teenagers over whom they have had some
    degree of authority,” Melanie Sloan, executive director of CREW wrote
    today.

    It appears only now, at the instigation of the House of Representatives
    leadership’s request, that the FBI has begun a preliminary investigation
    into former Rep. Foley’s conduct. Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert
    sent a letter to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales requesting an
    investigation into Rep. Foley’s actions as well as who knew about Rep.
    Foley’s conduct, when they knew it and why they did not forward that
    information to law enforcement authorities.

    Sloan stated today, “Since the FBI has known about Rep. Foley’s emails
    since July, the question arises: Did the ADMINISTRATION help to
    COVER UP Rep. Foley’s conduct and leave a potential sexual predator on
    the loose? Was the administration more concerned with protecting a
    powerful ally in Congress than with protecting children?”

    Sloan continued, “The American public deserves to know not just how and
    why members of Congress failed to take action to protect the youngsters
    entrusted to the care of the House of Representatives, but also WHY
    the FBI — an agency charged with protecting the public — FAILED to
    safeguard other youngsters from a potential sexual predator.”

    CREW’s letters and Rep. Foley’s e-mails are available at

    *a scandal of huge proportions of the REPUBLICAN House leadership*

    Absolutely NO ONE is doing a better job of reporting on the Mark Foley /
    REPUBLICAN House leadership scandal than Josh Marshall at Talking Points
    Memo.

    If you want to be kept up to date on all the developments in this
    mushrooming scandal, here’s the link: http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/

    And, yes, it is important to keep in mimd that this is no longer the
    Mark Foley scandal — he is gone from the scene.

    This is NOW a scandal of huge proportions of the REPUBLICAN House
    leadership, the Bush administration and, undoubtedly, Attorney General
    Alberto Gonzales, who may be the very person who put a “hold” on the FBI
    to prevent any investigation of Mark Foley’s emails even after the FBI
    was given copies of the e-mails by CREW.

    There are short articles about this at:
    http://www.citizensforethics.org/press/newsrelease.php?view=163

    Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW)

    Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW)
    calls upon the House of Representatives to appoint an outside
    counsel to investigate the House leadership’s role in covering
    up Rep. Mark Foley’s (R-FL) inappropriate email exchanges with
    a sixteen-year-old former Housepage.
