The Foley Fallout

CNN Uncut

Mark Foley, who quit as a Florida representative last month, is said to have sent sex messages over the Internet to teenage boys who had been congressional pages. Republican leaders, including Speaker Dennis Hastert, are accused of knowing about Foley's behavior and not stopping it to protect their political power.

The scandal has threatened to unravel the GOP's chances of maintaining control of both Houses of Congress, and Speaker Hastert has faced calls for his resignation.

Democrats are intensely using the Foley scandal to turn up the heat on Republicans, a month before congressional elections that put control of the House and Senate at stake.
