GOP campaign leader sorry over Foley scandal; blames other Republican leaders for failing to investigate
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican Rep. Tom Reynolds apologized Saturday for not catching Rep. Mark Foley in alleged lies about his Internet exchanges with teen pages.

Reynolds, R-New York, who heads his party's House campaign committee, issued the apology during a commercial aired in his Buffalo-area district. He also reiterated his assertion that he told House Speaker Dennis Hastert about Foley's behavior in the spring.

"At the time, I thought I had done the right thing. I have since learned that newspapers in Florida and the FBI had copies of the e-mails for months, and that Foley had been confronted about them and lied," Reynolds said.

The timing couldn't be worse for the GOP. Democrats, who haven't won a statewide executive office since 1990, are poised to take back the governor's office and are in position to win a majority of the five statewide races, according to recent polls.
