dennis hastert

Lawyers say the once powerful Dennis Hastert has reached a tentative out-of-court settlement over his refusal to pay $1.8 million for the victim's silence.
The former House speaker molested at least five students in the 1970s. He was released early after 13 months in prison.
No one should be penalized for their efforts to seek justice or basic medical care.
Hastert paid a former student $1.7 million to keep quiet about the abuse.
Look no further than the public's reaction and response to the actions of the pedophiles within the Catholic Church, assertions made against Bill Cosby, and even to the catalyst leading up to Dennis Hastert's demise, and you'll surely know the answer.
