Foley report won't be released before election?

Who could possibly be surprised by that? As the Washington Post points out:

The House ethics committee has all but wrapped up the investigative phase of its probe into the actions of former representative Mark Foley, informing key witnesses that they will not be summoned back for more questioning, lawyers in the case said yesterday.

But those lawyers indicated that the committee is unlikely to release its report on the Florida Republican -- or even an interim memo -- before the Nov. 7 elections.

will the investigation really have any value is still the remaining question on my mind.

You mean, you could even question the ethics of Congress? I mean, is there really any question? Sometimes I think a couple red and blue ostriches would make for better mascots. At least, they'd be more telling.

Ah, perhaps, the folks in Congress are too busy campaigning. In some cases, they are trying to save their sorry a----!! oops. I guess that's not PC.
Whatever. The whole Foley thing just disgusts me to no end!

The purpose of the Ethics Committee should be to say when someone did something ethical. They could save themselves a lot of time and trouble. Like in the Foley case, instead of finding out who did what wrong, find someone who did something right.

I like the ostrich idea.

As usual Washington hides its dirty laundry until after the elections so as to not influence the voters until it's too late, and then the voters will have plenty of time to express their outrage and forget before the next election.
