Republican Ray LaHood Admits Your Kids Are Not Safe As Pages with this Congress. Advocates Abolishing the Page Program to Protect Children.
From the A.P.:
The daily disclosures about Foley's salacious Internet exchanges with former pages has GOP lawmakers and conservative activists fearing the foibles of other politicians may be exposed. "People are very, very concerned," Rep. Ray LaHood, R-Ill., acknowledged Tuesday night.
LaHood said Wednesday he was standing by Hastert and predicted his fellow House Republicans would, too. It's not the speaker who should go, LaHood said, but the "antiquated" page system that brings 15- and 16-year-olds to the Capitol and has resulted in scandals in the past.
"Some members betray their trust by taking advantage of them. We should not subject young men and women to this kind of activity, this kind of vulnerability," LaHood said in a CNN interview. He said the program should be suspended, at least until its flaws can be corrected.
I've got a suggestion.... Why don't we just vote those untrustworthy pieces of shit out of office? Or maybe put them in Jail instead of covering up their "foibles"? Just a thought.
