Republican Tom Reynolds represents the 26th District of New York in the U.S. House. He is also the 2006 Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Campaign (RNCC).

Reynolds and fellow Republcian Representative Randy Kuhl are in such deep trouble in the mid-term 2006 Congressional election that the White House sent in First Lady Laura Bush for a quickie rally of the faithful on October 29, 2006. "They need your support and our country needs them," said the bland First Lady. News Report

Foley Scandal

Reynolds either helped to coverup the unseemly activities of fellow Republcian Congressman Mark Foley or he was incompetent in investigating them. He held a bizarre press conference on October 2, 2006, at which he surrounded himself with young children, and refused to dismiss them so that the press could ask detailed questions about Foley.

Reynolds fired his chief of staff, Kirk Fordham, after he was caught trying to cover up the scandal.

Text of Reynolds' Statement About The Foley Scandal

"Rodney Alexander brought to my attention the existence of e-mails between Mark Foley and a former page of Mr. Alexander's. Despite the fact that I had not seen the e-mails in question, and Mr. Alexander told me that the parents didn't want the matter pursued, I told the Speaker of the conversation Mr. Alexander had with me. Mr. Alexander has also said he took the matter to the Clerk of the House. An investigation was then conducted by the Clerk and John Shimkus on behalf of the House Page Board. Mark Foley betrayed the integrity of this institution as well as the trust of his colleagues and constituents. There is no excuse, and he needs to be held accountable." reynolds Knew About Emails to Teen Amherst Times
