Foley Page Scandal

By  | 

Behind closed doors, the House ethics committee is continuing its probe of the Mark Foley matter.

The supervisor of the Congressional page program faced questions Wednesday from members of the panel. She spent more than two hours with them, and refused to talk to reporters afterward. The committee also quizzed the man in charge of pages sponsored by Democrats.

The ethics panel is looking into e-mails and text messages Foley sent to former pages while he was still a Republican congressman from Florida. He quit his House seat after the story broke.

One key issue is who knew what about this, and when. Thursday, Foley's former chief of staff will go before the committee. He's on record as saying he told his counterpart at the House speaker's office about Foley's conduct in either 2002 or 2003.
