When Did Dems Know?

By all means: who knew what, and when did they know it. Bring it on.

A Democratic Staffer and former page has known about some potentially inappropriate behavior by Mark Foley since joining the Page Program in 1995, didn’t report or act on it or urge others to do so, now reaches out to The Post and the LA Times to fan the flames, according to the Washington Post:

Mark Beck-Heyman, now a graduate student in clinical psychology at George Washington University, and more than a dozen other former House pages said in interviews and via e-mail that Rep. Mark Foley was known to be extraordinarily friendly in a way that made some of them uncomfortable.

Beck-Heyman, who was a Republican page and is now a Democrat, said the attention was "weird," and he provided a handwritten letter that Foley sent him after the page left Washington to return home to California. The note suggested that they get together during the Republican National Convention in San Diego in 1996.

Beck-Heyman “later worked in the Clinton White House and on Sen. John F. Kerry's presidential campaign.”

Democrats conduct a virtual lynch mob to destroy the careers of Republicans and interfere with upcoming Congressional elections on the basis of the negligence and malfeasance of Republican leadership “not acting on” suspicions and allegations.

Democrats in a position just as capable of reporting abuse and initiating investigations, likewise did nothing to report, investigate, or otherwise act of what they knew.

There is no clear evidence of illegal behavior, however obviously inappropriate.

Democrats, probably Democratic National Committee leadership, knew they had a potential “October Surprise” at least as early as late last year, and if one the primary sources for this story can be believed, for over 10 years.

What did they know, and when did they know it? Are they only interested in investigations, taking action, causing a publicity storm, when it can hurt their political opposition, during election season?

And this scandal is supposed to tell us, not about the perversity of a single Representative, but everything we need to know about hypocritical Republicans. I would say it tells us everything we need to know about a cynical, scheming, amoral, and grasping Democratic Party, not able to sway America to their taunts and carping, with no ideas, no plans, no alternatives to the urgent issues we face, first and foremost National Security and the terrorist threat.
