Truman vs. Blunt: Today's Blunt, Foley and Hastert Connections

The direct connections continue.

It's amazing what is happening on a daily basis.

Here is a brief breakdown of what happened just yesterday:

A former page came forward and said he had contacts with Foley in 1997, 10 years ago.

Later that morning, an ethics committee announced a full launched investigation.

The FBI is talking to Foley's former chief of staff, who resigned and announced Hasbert knew of page abuse at least 3 years ago.

Hastert announced 'full responsibility', but is denying any knowledge, or blame, and is refusing to step down as Speaker.

And my opponent Roy Blunt, as of last night, issued a release to the Lincoln, Nebraska press with this headline:

BLUNT APPLAUDS SPEAKER'S ANNOUNCEMENT, EXPRESSES FULL CONFIDENCE IN HASTERT

My opponent is still standing behind his boss.

More is going to come out. With the press, and our justice system, it may take time, but I know the truth will come out.

It is amazing what has happened in one week. With this scandal, all of the lies, and corruption, something needs to be done. Now.

And our top government leaders, who were responsible for handling this disgraceful activity, continue to deny knowledge or resign for the better of our country.

Our children have to come first. Before politics.

Why are the leaders of our government, who have been responsible for handling this for years, continuing to deny knowledge of what has been reported? They were responsible. It was their job all of these years to get it taken care of. And nothing was done. It took our press 5 weeks before an election to bring the truth out, to let voters know what kind of job our government is doing.

Personally, I believe the latest statements by the top leaders in Washington, speak for themselves. This alone shows the public that our current leaders in government are putting politics before our children's safety.
