Who Are the Members of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children?

It’s easy to find the membership list of the Senate Caucus on Missing, Exploited, and Runaway Children.

Oddly, today, I can’t find the membership list for the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children’s Caucus anywhere. Google has let me down.

The Senate Caucus web page has a link for The Congressional Missing and Exploited Children’s Caucus at http://www.house.gov/lampson/CMECC.htm but that page is missing because Rep. Lampson lost his seat. (He’s now running in TX-22, DeLay’s old seat. Oh the irony.) Seems the Senate Caucus doesn’t update its links very often.

Archive.org hasn’t visited Lampson’s page since 2004, which is probably when it stopped existing. Back then it listed three leaders of the caucus:

Rep. Nick Lampson, (D-TX) CHAIRMAN & FOUNDER
Rep. Bud Cramer, (D-AL) CO-CHAIRMAN
Rep. Mark Foley, (R-FL) CO-CHAIRMAN

Thanks to archive.org I was able to find that in 2004 the House Caucus boasted 150 members — but even there I couldn’t get the list, just a “Data Retrieval Error”.

It would be good to have that list — a target-rich environment, even if an article from July, 2006 in US Fed News suggests the number of members may have dropped to 136.

Bonus Ironic Article Title: “Making prey of the predators” By Mark Foley and Orrin Hatch (Washington Times, June 24, 2005). Good quotes: “For too long, too many sex offenders have been treated like petty criminals. As a result, too many children and too many lives have been lost. These pedophiles prey on our children and will continue to do so unless stopped.” And “We need to stop playing Russian roulette with children’s lives. We need to stop these pedophiles now.”

  1. 1) You could call one of the co-chairman’s office and ask

    2) Looking for the phrase “Missing and Exploited Children’s Caucus” turns up a bunch of them

    3) But it doesn’t strike me as “a target-rich environment” – it’s a substantial fraction of Congress. And how are you going to prove anything, even if they are at higher-than-average probability of scandal?

    I cannot find any listing either. Nothing about its activities any where. The Senate Caucus is quite visible. I suspect that Lampson and Cramer (Dems) deserve a good look – in addition to Foley.

  3. Michael says:

    From what little I know, Lampson sounds like a pretty good guy — good enough that DeLay gerrymandered him out of a seat.

  4. I was able to get through to the Internet Archive page, and I mailed you a copy from it.

    The Spring 2006 edition of the “Congressional Yellow Book,” in addition to Bud Cramer and Mark Foley, lists these two as staff contacts:
