State of Missouri secondary Archives: on Principles & Values


Claire McCaskill: Hastert should resign his speakership for a cover-up

Clearly what has happened here is an arrogance of power. It is about holding onto power instead of doing the right thing. And Washington is not working. This shouldnít be about power. This should be about protecting kids and calling the authorities, calling the Ethics Committee. They didnít even tell the Democrats on the Page Committee. This was about a cover-up. I think itís wrong. It is a great example of how out of touch Washington is, and how theyíve got their priorities all wrong.

Jim Talent: Hastert should resign his speakership if found responsible

We need to find out who knew what, we need to have a zero tolerance policy for this, and then let the chips fall where they may. And I presume thatís what the investigation is about. Iím comfortable the investigation moving forward, finding out what happened, and then the people who were responsible taking the consequences. And if thatís up to and including the speaker, and up to and including resignation.
