I guess he had good reason to pay millions in hush money after all. But, I submit Hastert may not be an isolated case. Nine months ago a GOP congressman made an allegation that the GOP was activity recruiting Gays to run for officeas Republicans. How many more Dennis Hasterts are currently in the GOP establishment? The answer may be shocking but should be exposed nonetheless considering the fact GOPers are pushing Same Sex marriage be added to the Party’s platform at the GOP convention in Cleveland.
NY Post reports Dennis Hastert agreed to pay $3.5 million to a person the former House speaker sexually abused when the victim was a 14-year-old wrestler on a team coached by Hastert, prosecutors said in a court filing that details allegations by five former students.
The filing Friday night is the first time prosecutors have confirmed Hastert paid hush-money to conceal sex abuse. It chronicles a chain of deception that began with Hastert exploiting his position of trust as a teacher and coach and carried on years later to include lying to bank officials and making false claims of extortion to the FBI to conceal his wrongdoing.
The filing recommends that a federal judge sentence Hastert to up to six months in prison for violating banking laws as he sought to pay one of his victims, identified in court documents as “Individual A,” to ensure the person kept quiet. The sex-abuse allegations date to Hastert’s time at Yorkville High School in the Chicago suburb of Yorkville from 1965 to 1981.
“While defendant achieved great success, reaping all the benefits that went with it, these boys struggled, and all are still struggling now with what defendant did to them. Some have managed better than others, but all of them carry the scars defendant inflicted upon them,” the filing says.
