More on the Republican Leadership's Priorities

It was already as clear as the Caribbean that the Republican Party values their political power above protecting the country, upholding their oaths, or punishing wrongdoing. Here is more proof, via oppo-research from the New York State Democratic Committee:
Rep. Reynolds' NRCC received $100,000 from disgraced Rep. Foley in July, after he learned about Foley's inappropriate emails with minors

As reported yesterday, Reynolds declined to report the inappropriate emails to authorities or act on them -- now we may know why

During the same period Rep. Tom Reynolds was keeping Mark Foley's inappropriate emails with minors secret, his campaign committee coffers received a $100,000 donation from Foley, it was revealed today. Reynolds has come under fire for knowing about the inappropriate emails for many months and covering it up to protect his colleague who has since been forced to resign.
In another damning development, we now have former pages coming forward to talk about the atmosphere of the job. I've seen one page in particular a number of times, one Matthew Loraditch, who is President of the Page Alumni Association. He served back in 2001-2002. It seems that his page class was warned about Foley's creepy behavior, further proving that the GOP leadership new about this problem for years and did nothing. "But wait," you must be thinking, "if the pages were notified about his creepyness, then the Democrats should have heard about it through their pages, right? So they're equally complicit!" If only that were true. Instead, only Republican pages recieved the warning.

Do I need to reiterate the despicability of all of this? Didn't think so.
