PBS:

Congressman Foley's abrupt resignation last week is sending political shockwaves throughout the Capitol and the country, but more distressing are allegations that House leadership may have known details of Foley's inappropriate correspondence with a young page and done little about it.

This Friday, NOW asks "Can Congress police itself?" Our investigation looks at the collision of political and ethical decision-making in Washington and its profound effects on the upcoming elections and our democracy.

Also, the FCC is again considering proposals to let big media get even bigger. NOW takes a closer look at their most recent hearing.

Starting this Friday, the NOW website will offer a "who's who" slideshow of the Foley scandal. Also, check out Election Insight 2006 for the latest election news and polls.
