Lewis Cancels Fundraiser

Congressman Ron Lewis has canceled a fundraiser that was to feature House Speaker Dennis Hastert. This is the latest tie to the Bluegrass concerning the Mark Foley scandal.

The Speaker has come under attack in recent days over his handling of a complaint that former Florida Congressman Mark Foley sent inappropriate e-mails to a young male page.

Lewis says he wants the facts about how Hastert handled the complaint. Hastert was to attend a $50-per-person fundraiser for Lewis next Tuesday in Shelby County.

Lewis represents Kentucky’s Second District where he is facing Democratic State Representative Mike Weaver in November.
