Public Advocate Wants Criminal Investigation of Foley
Public Advocate of the U.S. President Eugene Delgaudio expressed an expectation for a full criminal investigation of former Republican Congressman Mark Foley and applauded an announcement that they would begin to look into allegations against Foley.
According to published reports, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales told reporters Monday afternoon, "We're just beginning to look at it right now. I haven't received a report."
The Justice Department sent House Speaker Dennis Hastert a brief letter that said the FBI "is conducting a preliminary investigation into this matter and will work closely with the department's prosecutors to determine whether any violations of federal law have occurred."
Speaker Hastert is claiming no direct knowledge of the details until recently. For Hastert's reaction go to http://apnews.myway.com/article/20061002/D8KGPRBG1.html
