Rahm Emanuel: December 2006 Archives

Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.), chief of the Democratic House political operation, was not candid when he said on an Oct. 8 news show he and his staff did not know about the Mark Foley contacts with former pages before the story broke last fall.

Sen. John McCain worries that Congress will continue to resist meaningful lobbying and ethics reform. Rep. Rahm Emanuel is confident that lawmakers learned their lesson -- GOP scandals contributed to Democrats taking control of the House and Senate Nov. 7 -- and critical changes will be made.

"Lynn, the reason why we're here, we do not underestimate how hard this is going to be," McCain (R-Ariz.) said. ''This is going to be very difficult.''
