Hastert back in the day as a wrestling coach, top left
I am no fan of Hastert, but why the feds though public indictment (given that what this appears to be is Hastert trying to avoid embarrassment and not doing anything criminal) speaks volumes to the double standard and corrupt politics. Hillary Clinton commits crimes that are overt and related to her office and there is nothing, yet they are going after Hastert for withdrawing his own money from the bank?
Instapundit: Dershowitz: This indictment smells (paying hush money is not illegal), Hastert and the Law, of course how did Hastert manage to get millions on a public service salary (maybe he got help from Harry Reid), what did Hastert allegedly do, and Hastert indicted
Allahpundit: There is a lot of stink all around on this one
