Call for an Independent Investigation, Join McCain

On Tuesday Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) called for an independent investigation of the Foley scandal rocking the Republican party and the Congressional leadership. via ABC News;

In Michigan, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., broke from the Republican Party line and renewed a call for an independent investigation of the House page scandal. "We cannot tolerate the intolerable," McCain said, adding that congressional leadership should have called for an outside group of highly respected former congressmen to get to the bottom of inappropriate contact Foley may have had with pages and whether anyone in the House leadership erred by not doing something sooner about the problem.

Rep. Vito Fossella should come out and support this, instead of his "Stay the Course" the leadership did nothing wrong in covering Foley's matter attitude that he has.

Hastert spent some of the day Tuesday meeting with evangelical leader K.A. Paul, founder of the Global Peace Initiative, who prayed with the speaker at Hastert's Plano, Illinois, home. Paul said he had hoped to convince the speaker to step down, since the Foley scandal had become such a distraction.
