Sue Kelly runs from Mark Foley, but she can't hide...
Members of the PROM committee include two New Yorkers - John Sweeney (20th CD) and Sue Kelly (19th CD) - as well as Shelley Moore Capito, of West Virginia, who is a member of the House Page Board and was not told of the Foley emails when the issue came up earlier this year.
The name of this committee, which helps candidates tap new donor bases, is doubly unfortunate when you consider this passage from yesterday's Washington Post:
"The pages did, however, receive a lot of attention from Foley. He attended one of their parties in a tuxedo. He donated to the fundraiser that helps pay for their prom and spoke admiringly about them in floor speeches. He learned their names and asked them about themselves. For many, it was welcome attention."
Will Sue Kelly return the money she collected that night? Or will she continue to hide?
