October 15, 2008: Wave Watch: Will Mahoney matter? (Politico)

  • “In 2006, House Republican leaders voluntarily testified under oath in the matter of disgraced former Congressman Mark Foley. Will House Democratic leaders, including Speaker Pelosi, Congressman Emanuel, and Congressman Van Hollen, agree to do the same?” Boehner asked today in an e-mail. “The American people deserve to know what House Democratic leaders knew about Congressman Mahoney’s reprehensible actions, what they did with the information, and whether they played any role in the actions Congressman Mahoney took. If all handled the situation appropriately, they should come forward immediately and provide a detailed accounting of their actions in the Mahoney matter, and they should welcome the opportunity to testify under oath about their actions.”
