Hastert Says He May Have Been Told 7:56PM EST Saturday, 9/30/2006 [link to this item]

Incumbent Rep. Thomas Reynolds, Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, is in a dead heat with Democratic challenger, John Davis, for the House seat from New York's 26th District. When New York Democrats began, today, to hammer away at him for having kept Mark Foley's "overly-friendly" 2005 e-mails to a 16 year old House page under his hat, he could not afford to remain silent. He had told someone, he replied:
...he told Speaker Dennis Hastert months ago about concerns that a fellow GOP lawmaker had sent inappropriate messages to a teenage boy.
Hastert, who has repeatedly said that he was never personally informed of the matter, has now begun to equivocate:

Hastert said he does not remember talking to Reynolds about the Foley e-mails, but did not dispute Reynolds' account.

"While the speaker does not explicitly recall this conversation, he has no reason to dispute Congressman Reynolds' recollection that he reported to him on the problem and its resolution," Hastert's aides said in a preliminary report on the matter issued Saturday.

It remains to be seen what the effects upon Reynolds's House race and Dennis Hastert's Speakership will be. The only thing that is certain is that the revelations and answers of "[does] not dispute" (or worse) relating to the Mark Foley scandal will continue for some time to come.
