(someone fix link please)

Today it came out Via ABC news:

Senior Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives, including Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), the chair of the Democratic Caucus, have been working with Mahoney to keep the matter from hurting his re-election campaign, the Mahoney staffers said.

A spokesperson for Emanuel, said he confronted Mahoney “upon hearing a rumor” about an affair in 2007 and “told him he was in public life and had a responsibility to act accordingly.” Emanuel’s spokesperson said he had not had any further contacts with Mahoney on the subject and did not know the woman involved worked on Mahoney’s Congressional staff until informed by ABC News.

So Mr Emanuel knew about this scandal way back to 07 and its practically 09 and he himself worked with Mahoney to keep it hush for political reasons (the same charge he made against Republicans back during Foley scandal).

Answers need to be demanded here:1. When and how did Emanuel learn of this?2. How much did Pelosi really know?3. What did Emanuel do to help keep this hush from political eye?
