Resign, Mr. Speaker - Editorials/Op-Ed - The Washington Times, America's Newspaper: "The evidence was strong enough long enough ago that the speaker should have relieved Mr. Foley of his committee responsibilities contingent on a full investigation to learn what had taken place, whether any laws had been violated and what action, up to and including prosecution, were warranted by the facts. This never happened. "

The party of family values and decency should do the decent thing and let the heads roll. This is a wonderful opportunity to let the party of Monica Lewinski, San Francisco, Barney Frank, Ted Kennedy, etc., know how decent middle America views these things. No cover up, no whitewashing, no excuses, no bunkum.

Hassert should resign immediately. Bush should take the lead in calling for the heads of anyone who knew and did not say. It is not acceptable and I am ashamed of the Republicans if they do not step up to the plate. Where is Focus on the Family? Where are the other evangelicals; are they so tainted by involvement in the game of power that they have forgotten their values?

Isn't everyone a sinner? Yes, but everyone is not a criminal and most try to keep theri evil side under restraint and live by a measure of civility. It is too much to expect people to live without sin; but they must pay the price if they do not live without crime. There is a difference, you know.
