Official: House leader Hastert will take responsibility for page scandal

Tbe leader of the House of Representatives, Speaker Dennis Hastert, will take responsibility for the unfolding page sex scandal but insist he will stay on as head of House Republicans, a party official said Thursday, as the Ethics Committee weighed what action to take.
