Another Republican gets a free ride courtesy of the tax payers yet again.
Yup, ol' pervy Uncle Denny is getting 3 squares and a bed for, oh, possibly a year or so, because of his conviction over paying hush money to underaged victims of his alleged sexual misconduct.
I have to say "alleged" because he can't be charged with molesting the kids, as the statute of limitations has run out. But he IS guilty of paying out up to $3.5 million to at least one of his victims.
Look, you don't pay that kind of coin if you aren't guilty of what you're trying to cover up. Obviously he touched the kids.
And this isn't a partisan frenzy, seeing as Hastert is long gone from the House.
No, the partisan frenzy was 10 years ago, when his pal Joe Lieberman defended him (and in essence called me a liar) when I asked him about it after a public event in Milford.
Good ol' Joe. Always backing the wrong guy.
Isn't it weird how Dennis Hastert defended former Rep. Mark Foley (accused of sending sexually explicit texts to teenage male Congressional pages)?
I guess those old perverts really stick together.
