Majority Leader John Boehner, an Ohio Republican, learned about the matter during the spring, but "there wasn't a level of alarm because there was no specificity about the contact," an aide to Boehner told CNN.
The congreesman incharge of the Page program, a REPUBLICAN, learned of this over a year ago and dimissed it, telling Foley to 'be mindful of his conduct'. Pelosi called for an investigation of the incident AND the cover-up by the Republican Leadership, but her move was blocked. An investigation into Foley's actions passed unanimously. It will be investigated by the Ethics Committee.
I find it extremely hypocritical to investigate Foley without investigating an apparent cover-up! Foley served on the comittee dealing with internet predators. Maybe he was there as a subject-matter expert!
