Iouse Dems say
GOP covered up

Soldier's suicide halts
prosecution of rape case

los Angeles Times
WASHINGTON - House Minority
Leader Richard Gephardt (D-Mo.) yes-
tdrday waded into the partisan furor
swirling around Newt Gingrich's ethics
violations, accusing Republicans of
engaging in a cover-up to prevent evi-
dence against the House speaker from
coming to light before all members
decide on his punishment.
Gephardt's accusation came as he
iticized the decision by the House
'GOP to vote on Gingrich's punish-
nment Jan. 21, even though a written
report on the case will not be avail-
able until late this week and public
h~iearings will have to be conducted
through the weekend.
"Why are we rushing to get through
this?" he asked on NBC-TV's "Meet
-the Press." "I think it's only to cover it
to make sure people don't have the
facts. All we've asked for is a normal,
reasonable process."
'Gephardt's comments mark the first
'time he has spoken out openly against
the Republicans' handling of the affair.
Meanwhile, Republican congression-
al leaders also went on the attack, with
Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-
Miss.) demanding a high-level investi-
gation into how a recording of a cellu-

s actions
lar telephone call potentially damaging
to Gingrich ended up being leaked to
the news media Two other leading
GOP figures, responding to reports that
a Democratic congressman gave the
tape to reporters, said if that proves to
be so, the House member should resign.
Time magazine, in its current edition,
quotes anonymous GOP sources as say-
ing they suspect that Rep. Jim
McDermott (D-Wash.), a House Ethics
Committee member, leaked the record-
ing. But the GOP leaders did not pub-
licly accuse McDermott in their com-
ments yesterday.
Collectively, the developments
brought a new level of intensity to the
increasingly partisan and bitter affair
that threatens to polarize the new
Congress as it begins work.
For the moment, Democrats are
focusing their fire on the GOP's refusal
to delay the full House vote on
Gingrich's punishment.
Rep. Bill Paxon (R-N.Y.), head of the
GOP congressional campaign commit-
tee, said on CNN's "Late Edition" that,
to meet a previously agreed upon Jan.
21 deadline for the House vote, tele-
vised public hearings by the Ethics
Committee on the Gingrich probe
would start Friday and could run

Democrats In the U.S. House say Rep.
Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) was involved in
ethics violations.
through next Monday - Inauguration
Day. The full House vote on punish-
ment for the Georgia Republican would
follow the next day.
While Republicans insist that the
tight scheduling is born of a desire to
deal with the affair swiftly so Congress
can concentrate on the legislative agen-
da, Democrats see it as one more exam-
ple of a process whose aim is more
about damage control than justice.
"I don't think this is the way we
ought to be acting. Let's let the ethics
process work," Gephardt said.

The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - Pvt. Alan May
was already fighting charges that he
had raped another private at the Army
Ordnance Center at the Aberdeen
Proving Ground last year when news of
a sex scandal broke in November, rock-
ing the Maryland base where he was
His case was not connected to the
very public investigation that led to
accusations of rape and other sexual
misconduct against two drill
sergeants and a company commander,
but the 22-year-old private told his
father that he was worried he might
not be able to get a fair trial in the
midst of the sensation.
May, who had denied any wrongdo-
ing, hanged himself a week ago with
the laces from his combat boots. Three
days later, on the same day he had been
scheduled to face a court-martial, the
Army gave May a memorial service.
"It's incredibly sad," said Capt.
Margaret Kemmerly Eckrote, the sol-
dier's attorney. He "never got to trial,
and his death denies him the possibility
of his name cleared."
May was accused in August of raping
someone he knew, a fellow private and
trainee who has since been transferred
and could not be reached for comment.
She told investigators that May raped
her. He insisted that the sex was con-

sensual. Had he been convicted, he
would have faced the possibility of life
in prison.
The Army would not release the
woman's name or the charging docu-
ments that would have provided details
of the incident, which allegedly
occurred in July.
Larry May can only speculate about
why his son
killed himself - (
the young man
did not leave a He CO,
suicide note -
but the retired understa
Air Force captain the

50 women who may have been sexually
abused, assaulted or harassed during
their time at Aberdeen - allegations
that implicated more than 25 drill
sergeants and other trainers.
Larry May contends that as the Army
tried to control the public-relations dis-
aster, his son became the victim of
overzealous commanders who wanted
to prove they
were taking
care of business
udn 't#at Aberdeen.

telephone inter-
suicide victim view from his

way, too.
"He was confused about why his cap-
tain was pressing this so hard," Larry
May said. "He couldn't understand why
they were going after him."
Alan May had asked to be discharged
from the Army instead of going to trial.
His request was denied after the scandal
involving his superiors became public
in November.
As the revelations of misconduct
widened, investigators identified about

Rock, exas. "But they were the author-
ity. They were going to do whatever they
wanted to prove they were in charge."
The Army contends that May's case
was handled no differently from the
four or five other rape cases prosecuted
each year at Aberdeen, an Army train-
ing center 30 miles north of Baltimore.
"We tried very hard to put the blind-
ers on," said Maj. Susan Gibson, deputy
staff judge advocate there. "The case
was prosecuted fairly."
