I NOW KNOW A LOT MORE ABOUT THE case of Dennis Hastert. Hastert was an Illinois congressman who became the longest serving speaker of the house from 1999 to 2007 and years after the end of his political career was taken down for structuring his cash withdrawals. And it was in connection with some alleged sexual abuse as a former high school teacher.

So this article discusses the case and the media's response to it. Especially the Chicago Tribune which was to create a narrative that ends the story. The ending leaves any further questions unanswered. Now I have one, who was the person that attempted to extort Hastert for large sums of money.

What a nasty, gross, and mysterious story.
