Hastert Pleads Guilty — 25 Comments

  1. BO, Bernie, and Hilliar all say no jail time for non violent crime.
    Dennis is lucky, timing is everything.

  2. Over 225 school employees have been found guilty of committing a sex related offense against minors.

    Hastert is not one of them.

    As many details about his case should be made public as possible because way too much of this has gone on and continues to go on.

  3. Why isn’t his sex partner exposed and maybe imprisoned for not paying income tax on his hush money income?

  4. Everyone should read The Franklin Cover-Up by John W. DeCamp.

    I hope more of this comes out.

  5. how does a guy who never had a salary of more than $176,000.00 a year accumulate $3.5 million to pay in extortion?

    It paid to be a member of the George Ryan Culture of Corruption.

  6. **Pedophilia is the glue that holds all government together.**

    WTF?

  7. **how does a guy who never had a salary of more than $176,000.00 a year accumulate $3.5 million to pay in extortion?**

    You do know that he’s made millions as a lobbyist since he left Congress, right?

  8. **BO, Bernie, and Hilliar all say no jail time for non violent crime.**

    You’re somehow blaming Obama, Sanders, and Clinton for this?

  9. Dave, In relation to the sentence as that is part of their talking points, not Denny’s actions.

    I’d prefer he do more time, almost Blago time.

    At least JJJ time.

  10. Sounds like Dave needs to open his eyes and find out what everyone else already knows. Your worldview looks to be a little on the naive side from all your comments above.

  11. **Sounds like Dave needs to open his eyes and find out what everyone else already knows. Your worldview looks to be a little on the naive side**

    You think that I’m naive because I don’t think that pedophilia is the glue that holds all government together.

    Got it.

  12. Oh, I absolutely know you are naive if, as you state, you don’t believe that statement.

    Look around the whole world is run by exactly that.

    Plus, you jumped on the Nob not understanding what was said.

    For just a taste: Hildebeast is a complete pedophile, lesbian, murderous, evil card carrying witch.

    I fear for your lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6.

  13. Cindy:

    Don’t be so repressed.

    What do you really think about Hillary?

  14. **He’s what’s known as a “Low-Info” voter, Cindy.**

    Hahaha. If you say so. I like when ya’ll make me laugh.

    **not understanding what was said.**

    Oh no, I understood exactly what was said. Nob attempted to use Hastert being a scumbag as an opportunity to make a silly strawman attack on a few Democrats. I understood it completely.

    **Hildebeast is a complete pedophile, lesbian, murderous, evil card carrying witch.**

    Hildebeast? Wow… stay classy.

    **I fear for your lack of knowledge. **

    I fear right wing crazies.

  15. Dave, I think you should contact AZSupporter and go for a long walk.

    Most people are trying to weed out the creeps, somehow I am having a problem with you passing the smell test.

  16. Dave. You are really off the rails on a crazy train.

    Think about what you are saying.

    Praying for Dave, now.

    Troll or naive – either way.

    Prayers.

  17. Dave, I have fun with both sides of the isle, a non partisan Strawman!

  18. **Praying for Dave, now””

    Please do. I much appreciate the genuine prayers for me, from someone that believes that “pedophilia is the glue that holds all government together.” Prayers from the crazy train are always appreciated.

    **You are really off the rails on a crazy train. Think about what you are saying.**

    Yes, ma’am, will do. I’ll think about it very intently. Because who wouldn’t take seriously someone that calls Hillary Clinton “Hildebeast” and believes the crazy things you believe about her and the government.

  19. What about Sens. Kirk and Graham?

    They make Hastert seem rather normal!
