Denny's, uh, got a scheduling conflict
The humor story that was writing itself today:
Hastert canceled the trip, citing schedule conflicts, and Padgett’s campaign substituted Ohio Sen. George V. Voinovich.
The switch had nothing to do with the Foley scandal, a Padgett representative said.
Padgett’s Democratic opponent, Dover law director Zack Space, called on Hastert to step down and urged Padgett to do the same.
"The people of the district are already sour from the Bob Ney scandal and crave change," Space said in a written statement.
