The Jack Rice Show, Monday, October 2, 2006.
Republican Congressman Mark Foley may have tried to use the Congressional Page System as his own personal dating service. What will be the ramifications of his actions? As importantly, what did the Republican Congressional leadership do to stop him? Did they have enough information to kow what he was doing? Should they have? Jack speaks with Mary Boyle, a spokesperson for Common Cause, about the latest fallout and the impact on the coming elections. Does there need to be some sort of system to oversee Congress?
Right before the show, breaking news about a shooting in Lancaster County Pennsylvania raises the question of school safety and the need to protect our children. Jack takes the press conference on the Amish school house shooting and then Jack takes calls on your feelings on what took place today and more.
