Pervertgate II: It Hits The Fan

According to the Drudge Report, today's editorial in the conservative Washington Times paper will call for the immediate resignation of Dennis Hastert, the Speaker of the House, over his role in covering up the actions of Rep. Foley. The editorial will state that Hastert "has forfeited the confidence of the public and his party, and he cannot preside over the necessary coming investigation, an investigation that must examine his own inept performance". I checked the conservative blogs I read daily, and this seems to a shared sentiment on the right. This scandal apparently crossed a line I didn't believe still existed in the GOP. I believe in Washington this is called a 'Miers Moment'.
