    via Roll Call:
    As of Saturday evening, nearly a dozen House GOP lawmakers and staffers have acknowledged that they knew of the initial batch of non-sexually explicit messages from Foley to a 16-year-old former House page, some of them for a year or more. These include Hastert; Majority Leader John Boehner (Ohio); National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Reynolds (N.Y.); Reps. Rodney Alexander (La.) and John Shimkus (Ill.); Mike Stokke, the Speaker’s deputy chief of staff; Ted Van Der Meid, Hastert’s counsel; Paula Nowakowski, Boehner’s chief of staff; Jeff Trandahl, the former Clerk of the House; and another Hastert aide and Alexander’s chief of staff, according to public statements and GOP insiders.

    Christopher Shays, a Republican of Connecticut, concludes that "[i]f [any leader] knew or should have known the extent of this problem, they should not serve in leadership."

    Similarly, Rep Peter T. King of New York determined that “[a]nyone who was involved in the chain of information should come forward and tell when they were told, what they were told and what they did with the information when they got it.”
