Florida Dems ask for investigation of "Foley Five" by MItch E. Perry10/02/06
Meanwhile, The Florida Democratic Party is seizing on the situation with House Republicans.
This morning, they demanded that the 5 top Republicans that have been named in published reports as having learned of the explicit e-mails, Speaker Dennis Hastert, New Yorkâ€™s Tom Reynolds, Illinois John Shimkus, House Majority Leader John Boehner and Louisiana Congressman Rodney Alexander, must be investigated. Mark Bubriski is with the Florida Democratic Party (roll tape#1â€?Congressional Committeeâ€?)
And Mark Bubriski with the Florida Democratic Party says that the nature of whatâ€™s occurred wonâ€™t allow for Republicans to try to walk away from this situation (roll tape#2 o.q.â€?get away with this oneâ€?)
In Addition, the Florida Democratic Party is calling for GOP Congressional candidates like Vern Buchanon and Clay Shaw to give up campaign funds that Mark Foley directly gave to them â€“ thatâ€™s already with several candidates across the country.
