Sue Kelly continues spinning on Mark Foley...

Earlier today, the Los Angeles Times reported additional details on the Mark Foley/Pagegate scandal during the time that Sue Kelly chaired the Page Board. Here's a snippet from the Times story:

The exchanges quickly became provocative. In one 2000 message, Maf54 inquired about the length and direction of the youth's erection. "He clearly has used his position, but who hasn't?" the former page said.

Meanwhile, Sue Kelly continues to try to spin the story and minimize her involvement in the whole sorry mess. In the past week, we've seen her claim that she doesn't remember when she was chair of the Page Board (the correct answer is February 1999 to early 2001). And we've seen her say that nothing "had been brought to my attention" which kind of sounds like Condi Rice's excuses about 9-11 because "If we had known an attack was coming against the United States, we would have moved heaven and earth to stop it." Duh!

Has Sue been subpoenaed yet? Why not give her office a call and ask? Here's how to reach her (well, her office, since she seems to be in stealth mode, particularly on this issue): 202.225.5441 in DC or 845.291.4100 (Orange County), 845.897.5200 (Dutchess County) or 914.962.0761 in Westchester.

The election is now less than a month away. Voters deserve to know the truth about what Sue knew. And if she really knew nothing despite being Chairman of the Page Board, why the heck not?
