Sue Kelly's memory lapse on Mark Foley...
Kelly said she couldn't remember the exact years of her service, but Salley M. Collins, a spokeswoman for the Committee on House Administration, said in an e-mail yesterday that Kelly served as chairwoman from 1998 to 2000.
Hmmm...where else have we heard about a politician not being able to remember important things about this case? How about Speaker of the House Denny Hastert, who can't remember when he was told about Foley's behavior? Or NRCC Chair Tom Reynolds, who also seems to have a memory lapse when it comes to details about this case?
And why are the dates that Kelly served as Chair of the Page Board changing by the hour? As we've noted in several posts, Kelly just can't seem to get her story straight on this one. So now she's simply saying she just doesn't remember.
Don't the voters in the 19th deserve more from their Congresswoman than lame excuses about events that didn't even happen all that long ago?
If that link doesn't work (its rather hard to direct link)
their site and search 'house page board' should be titled under " APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS TO HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES PAGE BOARD" April 26, 2001
