Hastert: I’m Not Going Anywhere

A statement from Speaker Hastert via NBC News:

“The Speaker has and will lead the Republican conference to another majority in the 110th Congress… Mark Foley has resigned his seat in dishonor, and the criminal investigation of this matter will continue. The Speaker is working every day on ensuring the House is a safe, productive environment for members, staff and all those who are employed by the institution.”

We’d note only that the past tense of “lead” is led.
