The Republican leadership covered up the Foley scandal for the last election

By now the entire country has heard of Republican Representative Mark Foley's dirty messages to underage House pages. Well, the Republican leadership in the house heard about it two years ago. They failed to protect the children under their care by choosing to cover the scandal up rather then investigate it properly. They were so worried about damage to their power that they let Mark Foley continue his behavior for years.

Now, as this scandal is breaking just over a month before the election, they Republican leadership is claiming Democrats set the scandal up blah blah blah.

However, if they had done their jobs this scandal would have been settled long ago. There would have been a political price to pay for the Republican party in the last election. Instead they chose to cover this up and are now paying the price in this election. This is a scandal completely of their making. Cover ups are never worth the price. Will they ever learn?
