Source:Frmr Speaker Hastert was Paying Hush Money to Keep Sex Abuse Charges Quiet

Over the last few days it became public that former Republican Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert of Illinois was under indictment for lying to the FBI about over a million dollars he had removed from various bank accounts. Now we learn that the money he was taking out was being paid to a blackmailer to keep allegations of sexual misconduct a secret.

According to the L.A. Times an insider is saying that the money was hush money for sexual misconduct he supposedly committed before he went to Congress.

One of the officials, who would not speak publicly about the federal charges in Chicago, said “Individual A,” as the person is described in Thursday’s federal indictment, was a man and that the alleged misconduct was unrelated to Hastert’s tenure in Congress. The actions date to Hastert’s time as a Yorkville, Ill., high school wrestling coach and teacher, the official said.

“It goes back a long way, back to then,” the source said. “It has nothing to do with public corruption or a corruption scandal. Or to his time in office.” Thursday’s indictment described the misconduct “against Individual A” as having “occurred years earlier.”

Asked why Hastert was making the payments, the official said it was to conceal Hastert’s past relationship with the male. “It was sex,’’ the source said. The other official confirmed that the misconduct involved sexual abuse.

Here we go again.

Dennis should have set up a fake charity like the Clintons. Then he’d be celebrated instead of indicted!
