Hastert will resign if it will help...

From a link in the Raw Story:
Embattled House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) has told conservative activist Paul Weyrich that he would resign if it would help the Republicans, Congressional Quarterly is reporting.

"He said if he thought that resigning would be helpful to the Republicans maintaining the majority, he would do it," Weyrich said in an interview. "But he did not think it would be helpful for Republicans."

CQ staffers report that Weyrich held, in his words, "an emotional telephone conversation" with the Speaker, who is facing accusations that he was aware of disgraced Rep. Mark Foley's (R-FL) behavior issues long before his office has stated he was.
Wow. I think the Republicans are starting to realize that this scandal just won't go away.

First Kirk Fordham, chief of staff to Republican Rep. Tom Reynolds resigns; now Dennis Hastert is floating the "R-word" out there.

This story is developing on an hourly basis.

And to Senator Lieberman: do you STILL think we're being "partisan"?

Yeah, he's a real pleasant looking fellow.

I guess this is what corruption makes you look like after a while.

that is so fat sick!

His argument, rather, should be, to honor the will of the people and to get to the bottom of Predatorgate, I will step down. Not *if it gets us more votes I will step down*.

sick, sick, sick.... (shaking head)
