    If you had been asked before this story came out for the identity of the Republican Speaker of the House with the longest tenure, would you have guessed Dennis Hastert instead of Gerald Ford, Newt Gingrich, etc.?

    Hastert has been indicted for lying to the FBI. They noticed that he was making cash withdrawals from bank accounts just below the $10,000 limit that triggers bank reporting requirements. It turns out that he's been doing this for a long time, to the tune of $3.5 million, to "Individual A."

    Interesting. Maybe it goes back to when he was teaching.

    I hope they go after that "individual" with the same gusto and charge him/her with extortion.

    I'm betting it's one of his victims.

    I'm hearing there is more than one victim.

    Dear Abby. If I pay someone money not to squeal on my sexual misconduct and they do it anyways, do they have to pay it back? Signed - Asking for a friend.
