House Ethics Panel Clears Leadership in Foley Scandal
The House Ethics Committee has found that no rules were violated in the Foley scandal.
The House ethics committee has found that Republican leaders did not break any rules in handling allegations against former Rep. Mark Foley, but that they were negligent in protecting the teenage pages, a congressional source said. No one will be reprimanded, the source said.
The ethics committee plans to hold a news conference Friday on its investigation into Foley, whose alleged e-mail exchanges with former congressional pages prompted his resignation earlier this year, a congressman and a GOP aide said.
Perhaps the rules could use some tweaking.
