How can aides and republicans in Congress knew about Foley since the 1990's and still not be accountable?

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The House ethics committee said Friday that Republican leaders were negligent by not protecting teenage pages from possible improper advances from Rep. Mark Foley but broke no rules in handling the allegations.

No one will be reprimanded, according to a report released by the committee, prompting one former page to call the committee's conclusions "just a slap on the wrist to Republicans."


Evidence showed that concerns began to arise about Foley's interactions with pages or other young male staff members shortly after he took office in 1995, according to the document.

Jeff Trandahl, who served in several capacities in the House clerk's office, testified to the committee he repeatedly warned Foley about his conduct with the pages on numerous occasions, one of which was before he became House clerk in 1999. Trandahl left the job in November 2005.
