FDP Statement on Ethics Panel Report

ORLANDO – Florida Democratic Party spokesman Mark Bubriski issued the following statement on the release of a report from the ethics panel investigating the Mark Foley scandal:

“The ethics panel’s report confirms what the Democratic leadership and the American public already knew: Republicans in Congress failed to safeguard vulnerable youths for whom they were directly responsible.

“Thankfully, today marks the end of the ‘willfully ignorant’ Republican Do-Nothing Congress that failed this country on so many levels.
