Hastert calls for investigation into IM's

By

Speaker Hastert is asking the FBI to investigate not only former Rep Foley's actions, but also who had posession of the salacious late—breaking IM messages for the past years. The New York Times reports.

 'Since the communications appear to have existed for three years, there should be an investigation into the extent there are persons who knew or had possession of these messages but did not report them to the appropriate authorities,' the letter from Mr. Hastert said. ' It is important to know who may have had the communications and why they were not given to prosecutors before now.'
