3. Cats are not considered farm animals

 

in any case, I'm sure that Hastert, like most righties, prefers dogs. Hitler, for instance, hated and feared cats.

11. That would be two questions:

sexual misconduct with a male farm animal
sexual misconduct with a female farm animal

just to continue with the pattern of the other voting options

5. I have been figuring sexual misconduct with a minor male from the git-go.

The way they worded the indictment certainly implies it. Decades ago. Something he would pay millions of dollars to hush up must be bad.

Of course, it could be sexual misconduct with a female minor resulting in a baby. The proof would be still be available through DNA even decades later.

6. sorry - don't see him as a romeo having unprotected sex with a girl, do you? And, if

he had - just can't see that being enough to pay millions to hide.

gotta be something more aberrant to pay all that money to hide.

9. Illegitimate child with student? Child reaches age of majority and blackmails

 

That's my guess. It's really the only thing that accounts for the years of silence. Mom shut up, kid says "oh no you don't."

This "Bruce" from the CSPAN call is likely his son.

12. I vote illegitimate child as well

who he knew almost all their life.
plus anything that Hasart gave them could be considered back child support instead of bribry.

He probably has several skeletons in his closet that would all come to light.

18. It's a male, former student it would appear...

One of the officials, who would not speak publicly about the federal charges in Chicago, said “Individual A,” as the person is described in Thursday’s federal indictment, was a man and that the alleged misconduct was unrelated to Hastert’s tenure in Congress. The actions date to Hastert’s time as a Yorkville, Ill., high school wrestling coach and teacher, the official said.

20. from cnn

Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert was paying a former student to keep quiet about allegations of sexual misconduct from the time when Hastert was a teacher and wrestling coach in Illinois, two sources with knowledge of the federal investigation say.

Hastert was a teacher and wrestling coach in Yorkville, Illinois, between 1965 and 1981, before entering politics. Hastert was indicted on Thursday on charges of lying to the FBI about $3.5 million he allegedly agreed to pay to an undisclosed person to "cover up past misconduct."
