Congressional Leadership Knew 2:11PM EST Saturday, 9/30/2006 [link to this item]

The revelations are coming in almost by the minute. John Shimkus, R-Ill., has found himself in the difficult position of having to admit that he did not think it necessary to inform the lone Democrat on the House Page Board of the allegation that former Congressman Mark Foley had acted inappropriately towards a House page.

According to Talking Points Memo (and others):

Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) interviewed Foley last year about some of the contacts with the page. The House clerk, who is also a member of the Board, was also present. Speaker Hastert's office was informed of the interview, but according to GOP leadership sources who spoke to Roll Call, Hastert himself was not informed.

Rep. Dale Kildee (D-MI), the only Democrat on the Board, was not informed of the interview, according to Roll Call.

To this point, the following Republicans are reported definitely to have had some knowledge of allegations against Foley for as much as a year:
Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Reynolds (N.Y.) and Reps. Rodney Alexander (R-La.) and John Shimkus (R-Ill.), as well as a senior aide to Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) and former Clerk of the House Jeff Trandahl.
Speaker Hastert has been defending to all sides against reports that he had personally been informed by Boehner.
