House of Representatives Speaker Dennis Hastert will take responsibility for the unfolding page sex scandal surrounding Congressman Mark Foley, but insists he will stay on as head of House Republicans, a party official said Thursday. At a news conference, Hastert will also ask the House Ethics Committee to consider new rules so that anyone making inappropriate contact with pages be disciplined.
