Rep. Tom Reynolds (R) is chairman of NRCC, in charge of Republican's congressional campaign. He learned about Rep. Mark Foley (R)'s improper behavior last fall, per his own written statement: http://www.abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory?id=2512231 Reynolds is being accused of doing too little by the Democrats. The fair question is not so much what he didn't do (push for an investigation and/or for Foley's resignation). It is what he did afterwards: On May 10, 2006, months after knowing Foley's improper behavior, Reynolds contributed $5,000.00 to Foley's campaign. Family values be damned! http://www.tray.com/cgi-win/x_polpactocand.exe?DoFn=H4FL1602106 I can't say about other Republicans. But clearly Rep. Tom Reynolds (R) is only interested in holding on to power.
