    Dennis Hastert, of course, went on to become one of the country's most powerful legislators, but this appears to stem from long ago ... Kind of odd that the US Attorney's office isn't stating what alleged acts Hastert felt so desperate to hide or Individual A's gender. Was Individual A extorting Hastert or was he/she a victim? Or both? I guess we'll know in due time.

    Here's the indictment:

    Could there be something sexual involved in this?

    I'm going to guess it's of the Jerry Sandusky/Josh Duggar variety.

    I'm thinking more he fathered a kid with a high school student.

    Who hasn't had impure thoughts?

    Even Jimmy Carter did.

    Maybe he fathered Patton Oswalt.

    That is fucking outstanding! Way to go, Ace.

    And I have been listening to a lot of Patton Oswalt acts through iHeartRadio streaming.
    His "Orgy" lines were great. Fog bank.

    I urge everyone to reserve judgment until an explanation can be crafted as to why this is all Bill Clinton's fault.

    Hastert became well known when he became House Speaker after replacing Robert Livingston, who resigned when news of him having affairs came to light when Larry Flynt sought info on Republicans who were having affairs as well, even though they were leading the impeachment of Bill Clinton for his own sexcapades.

    See, Hastert's problems come back to it being Bill's fault. If only he hadn't dallied with Monica, there never would have been the impeachment, Flynt would never have sought information and Livingston's affairs would have been kept quiet and he would have been Speaker instead of Hastert, who would have been some unknown random Congressman posing behind Bush in photo ops.

    So all of this comes back to the blue dress.
