Valdosta - Georgia Congressman Jack Kingston supports House Speaker Dennis Hastert and rejects calls for his resignation.

Kingston believes Hastert and other Republican leaders did not know that former Rep. Mark Foley had exchanged sexually explicit e-mails and instand messages with former pages until the allegations emerged Friday.

He does, however, question the timing of the revelations and whether Hastert is the real target.  "If people sat on information that may have been criminal in nature and held it until this time for political purposes, then I think they should be prosecuted, and the law would require that," Congressman Kingston says.

Kingston hopes the necessary changes are made so a similar situation doesn't happen in the future.
