WASHINGTON -- For more than a week, members of Congress said they would avoid
partisan politics when they got Kenneth Starr's report on President Clinton. But
when they finally saw it Friday, they split along party lines.

Republicans were aghast at Clinton's behavior, with many saying it showed he had
lied and abused his power.

"It's vile," said Rep. Mark Foley, R-West Palm Beach. "It's more sad than
anything else, to see someone with such potential throw it all down the drain
because of a sexual addiction."
