House Majority Leader, Rep. John Bohner (R-OH), says that Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) was responsible for dealing with the Foley sex messages scandal.

In a radio interview included in the following video, Boehner says, "I believe I talked to the speaker, and he told me it had been taken care of, and my position is, it's in his corner. It's his responsibility. The Clerk of the House who runs the page program, the Page Board, all report to the speaker, and I believe that it had been dealt with."
